What to Expect in our Early Education Programs
Our classroom environments and activities are designed to promote optimal learning and development. Our teachers meet young children where they are developmentally, both as individuals and as part of a group, and help each child meet challenging and achievable learning goals.
Research-Based Curriculum (Preschool & Kindergarten)
Curiosity, exploration and experimentation are the keys to our high-interest curriculum, ensuring that children are intellectually engaged, absorbed, and challenged. Each day children have the opportunity for sensory, art and musical exploration in addition to outdoor play. Large and small group activities include exposure to quality read-alouds, investigation, problem-solving and applying developing literacy and numeracy skills in purposeful ways.
From delightful Kindermusik lessons, to interactive Jolly Phonics, to our age-appropriate Bible curriculum and Peacemakers program, we incorporate research-based curricula. Our students love school! Parents appreciate receiving a glimpse into the classroom and tracking their child’s progress through classroom blogs/newsletters, photo documentation of learning, online individualized student portfolios (preschool) and standards-based progress reports.
Highly qualified Christian teachers provide a positive environment and abundant learning opportunities in which children explore and discover through observation, play, problem solving and creativity. Our youngest students develop foundational skills and are nurtured in self-confidence, independence, healthy interdependence and self-image based on the knowledge of being “created in God’s image.” We celebrate the differences in each child and the unity we have in Christ. We also anticipate the “Aha!” moments of discovery and respond to the children’s desire for further exploration.
A Christ-Centered Partnership
Christian Heritage Academy provides an educational experience consistent with the biblical values taught in your home and at your church. Biblical truth and wisdom are woven into daily learning and interactions between teachers and students at CHA. Intentional teaching of God’s Word, along with prayer and the joy of worshipping together, nurtures your child throughout the week, creating a three-way partnership among home, church and school.
