First Presbyterian Child Care offers the basic materials for active learning blocks, dramatic play, art, manipulative, science. Teachers use subjects that excite children to support the curriculum goals. Topics may change quickly or be explored all month. Learning letters and numbers takes place within this active exploration. Academic skills are only one of the important things that young children need to learn. Most important to school success is learning to love school, to become competent problem solvers, and to feel good about oneself. A weekly Chapel time lets children learn about Godís love & gifts to the world while a weekly music class lets children explore rhythm, melody, and movement. The Centerís program is designed to facilitate the healthy growth of the whole child, which includes emotional, social, cognitive, physical, and spiritual development. Building a caring community of parents and teachers surrounds children with the nurturing they need to thrive.
