Curriculum

"Building Blocks"

Building Blocks is a teacher-created curriculum centered on educational fundamentals. Each month, children will focus on specific letters, colors, shapes, themes, numbers, etc. Children will participate in a variety of activities pertaining to specific monthly topics, including having classroom educational visitors. This curriculum, supervised by the Early Childhood Care Director, will provide each student with the the "building blocks" needed for entrance into Georgia Pre-K.

In addition to learning educational fundamentals, the "Building Blocks" curriculum will give your child a strong Christian foundation by focusing on one Bible verse each week.
