The purpose of the Early Childhood Education program is to provide our students with a quality education that builds and matures each child’s spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical development in a Christian environment. We have designed a place where children feel safe, supported, and loved. Because children learn best through play, our EC program provides many different hands-on opportunities to explore thorough structured educational activities encouraging each child to use higher levels of thinking appropriate to their individual developmental levels.
