Child Focused Learning
Teachers are able to enrich children's experiences by moving in the direction they lead. We incorporate children's interests and needs into our weekly lesson plans. When children are interested in what is happening in the classroom, they are engaged, happy, curious, and eager to learn more!
Classroom Learning Centers
Learning centers promote free choice. Teachers design and set up learning centers in the classroom enabling children to make decisions. Each center is well thought out and includes all props and materials needed for fun, successful learning, play, and interactions.
This is an important part of our program! We share bible stories and songs at circle time. Before meals and snacks, we teach and say child friendly prayers with the class. We give thanks for our friends and pray for others. Once a week, we get together with the other classes and have chapel time with the children’s pastor where we listen to stories, sing, dance, and participate in activities.
Special Guests & Visitors
Throughout the year we have many specials guests visit our school. Some of our visitors include community helpers such at West Chester Fire Department (we love to see the firetrucks and firefighters), the Cincinnati Museum Center (the Dino Dig is one of our favorite programs), the parks programs from Hamilton and Butler County, local animal shelters, and more!
