Our nurturing environment with individualized care plans provides a safe healthy place for your child to grow and learn. Your child’s teacher will work with you to determine a plan of care, including nap and feeding times that are best suited for your infant and family. Children participate in a variety of learning experiences to foster their development, including bible story time, gross motor play, and baby sign language.
Children in our toddler program engage in developmentally appropriate, student interest led learning experiences that allow them to explore the world around them. Teachers build routines and guide children based on their strengths, interests, and needs. Biblical teaching and a play based approach are highly focused on.
Our early preschool program prepares young learners for the instruction they will receive in our older preschool program, while maintaining a child-directed approach. Play based hands-on experiences promote discovery and inquiry with opportunities for children to think critically. Teachers continue to guide students in their understanding of God and the biblical truth.
Our full day preschool program eliminates the need for wrap-around care, and provides children with the foundational skills needed to be successful prior to kindergarten. Our preschool staff have Bachelor’s degrees in Elementary or Early Childhood Education and possess the training and knowledge required to provide the highest quality education and care. In addition to utilizing Creative Curriculum, Iowa Early Learning Standards, and Teaching Strategies Gold (all used by the Statewide Voluntary Preschool Programs), teachers also continue to support children’s spiritual journey through stories and activities from Concordia’s One-In-Christ curriculum.
