"Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it."- Proverbs 22:6
Learning Through Play.
The educational programs at Stars of Abraham Christian Learning Center were created with our children’s needs in mind: to mature and develop in a safe yet stimulating environment. Take a look below to learn more about each classroom program.
The Infant room focuses on providing an open environment for infant exploration. In this space a variety of toys and surfaces are available so that the infants can explore the world around them. This classroom has individualized schedules and keeps each individual's child's needs first.
children 1 year-2 years old
In Toddler One we focus on self-exploration and provides many different types of learning centers. The children are encouraged to openly explore each area and work on self-help skills such as balancing, walking, sharing, and self-feeding skills. In this room we also work on establishing a class schedule so children know what to expect each day.
Children 2-3 years old
In Toddler Two we are focusing on self-help skills. This room has open learning centers to promote creativity and imaginative play. Self-help skills we are working on in this class include potty training, independent handwashing, and child directed play. this classroom has an attached child-sized bathroom for children to work on toilet training skills. This classroom also features an open art area stocked with supplies for children to explore pre-writing skills and fine motor skills.
Children 3-4 years old
In Preschool we are working on our self-help skills including problem solving skills as well as self-regulating behavior through scaffolding, which means emotional responses. We spend most of our days openly exploring with the classroom with invitations to play set-up by our teacher. We have open access to all supplies as we work on our fine-motor and pre-writing skills.
Children 4 -5 years old.
In Pre-K we are learning how to work as a team, engage in small group activities, follow multiple step processes , self-regulate and prepare for kindergarten. We are also encouraging writing skills and pre-reading skills in the classroom by providing ample opportunities to explore writing tools.
The Ballroom -Shared space
We have a shared large motor room that we call the "ballroom" to take advantage of. We use this space if it is hazardous, rainy or low air quality outside. The children can engage in large motor playtime including games, parachute, freeze dance, bubbles, giant blocks and of course many different types of balls.
