What Makes Us Unique

 Our list of Goals are skills we are working on all year long in our preschool classes.  These goals are pulled right from the Pennsylvania State Standards for Early Childhood Education.  As the Standards are updated, we also update our curriculum. Our curriculum follows the Pennsylvania State Standards for Early Childhood Programs.  We work directly with the local school districts ensuring a smooth transition into Kindergarten.  Our highly qualified teachers send home weekly newsletters outlining their lessons for the week.  Our Children’s Minister shares dynamic, weekly faith based lessons with each class.  Our class sizes are small allowing more individualized attention.  We have a Library/Story Play Room:  Inspired by new story each month, the library is decorated from floor to ceiling to become the story for the children to “play the story”.
