Our preschool program has age appropriate activities implemented with attention to the different needs, interests and abilities of the individuals within the group. Children are encouraged to be expressive, creative and are challenged to grow in their understanding and skills.
Each classroom is vibrant with child-centered opportunities for learning that are both teacher directed and student initiated. Learning centers that support thematic units of study allow students to explore both independently, or with adult assistance. Free-play activity allows children to engage in self-defined tasks which allow for skill development, socialization and implementation of ideas.
Learning materials include a wealth of hands-on manipulatives that support the development of the child in both the indoor and outdoor environments. An essential dimension of the St. Paul curriculum recognizes that children are a gift from God and provides them with a foundation for their relationship with Him. Children are nurtured in classrooms that reflect the love of Jesus. They are helped to gain knowledge and understanding of God’s Word, which reveals to them the love of their heavenly Father shown through Jesus Christ, His Son! Children are encouraged in their faith life which guides their daily living, prepares them for successful, productive lives as Christian adults, and sustains them in their earthly walk with God.
“Pre-K 2 is a literacy based creative curriculum with weekly themes. Our classroom goals are to enhance social skills through guided and natural play. We also prepare for higher grades by learning to sit quietly, take turns, stand in a line, clean up and use the restroom. We encourage gross motor development with gym activities and fine motor with weekly crafts. Most importantly we teach that Jesus loves you!” -Ms. Anne & Ms. Ronda
“Our PreK-3 classrooms foster an environment of independence to prepare for Kindergarten. We engage the whole child in learning through play as we grow in cognitive, social-emotional, fine motor and gross motor skills. Our Christian beliefs permeate all areas of the day with daily Bible stories and weekly Chapel. We provide in-school field trips such as Zoo Atlanta, petting farms, magic shows, puppet shows, and a pumpkin patch.” -Ms. Allums & Mrs. Pickering
“Pre-K4 nurtures the whole child in a loving class environment to prepare their educational journey into Kindergarten. We learn through social-emotional, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, independent self-help skills and Leadership. Our curriculum utilizes themes through which the children grow academically with a hands on approach. Your child will grow in faith by daily devotion time, Bible stories, and by daily praying for one another. Your child will be rooted in the love of God, growing in faith and sharing His love for others.”
