A Christ-centered, nurturing learning environment where children are loved, cared for and inspired daily.
To serve the Winston-Salem community by offering an excellent Child Development Ministry to families with preschool age children that seek the ideal in physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual growth.
We believe that all children are uniquely created individuals and have a right to learn within a safe, healthy, nurturing, and secure environment. This environment, composed of parents, teachers, and the community, promotes the positive self-concept and self-expression of the children. A developmentally appropriate, center-based curriculum is designed according to the interests of the children. The curriculum is composed of quality experiences in language, art, music, motor skills, social-emotional, and intellectual development. A qualified staff of early childhood educators transforms each classroom into a place for children to grow and develop at their own pace. Our staff continuously participates in continuing education opportunities to enhance their skills. Teachers are an active part of the learning process. The teacher acts as a facilitator, interacting where needed to enhance the learning environment. Learning takes place not only within the classroom walls but on the playground as well as within the community.
Learning begins with parents, therefore parent involvement is encouraged and expected. Parents will have opportunities to join together for learning, fellowship, and to be involved in activities in the classroom or the center as a whole. Because the diversity of all families is valued and celebrated, parents are encouraged to share their culture within the classrooms. Working together, parents and teachers provide a quality program for young children. Communication between home and school is of utmost importance. Parents and teachers share successes as well as concerns in order to meet the changing needs of the child. Parents are welcomed within the center at all times to share in their child's learning.
