Guidelines and Curriculum

Infant and Toddler classrooms will follow a thematic approach in utilizing the BJU Press curriculum. The teachers will incorporate some of the same unit activities as the other classes but focus on an individual developmental approach. Teachers will also evaluate each child’s developmental milestones and encourage each child in their personal growth. 

Bob Jones Press curriculum will be utilized in the 2 & 3-year-old classes as well as the PreK 4 classroom. It is a strong biblically based and academically supported material with hands-on activities, play and group interactions to master age-appropriate concepts. It provides engaging lessons that motivate practical learning, problem-solving and critical thinking using music and literature.  For more information visit their website:
