Younger Multi-Age Programs
Ratio: 5 children to 1 adult
Classroom maximum: 15
The Younger Multi-Age Programs focus on the development of language, motor, and social skills, through a variety of hands-on art, music, dance, movement, literacy, math, and science experiences. We encourage the development of social skills and the respect of self and others. We provide support and encouragement with regard to toilet training and other self-help skills. Children do not have to be potty trained to attend these classes. Since this is the first school experience for many children, we spend time easing them into their new setting in order to foster their sense of security and independence. The children participate in interactive Bible stories, weekly worship, and Christian holidays.

The Three-Year-Old Program and the Older Multi-Age Program encourage each child to enhance his or her rapidly developing skills. The programs stress conceptual development through hands-on learning. We guide children to be successful in their understanding of language, number concepts, science, art, music, and the use of their bodies. Teachers model and guide children to problem solve, to develop empathy, and to label their feelings. Children participate in weekly worship time, Christian celebrations, prayers, and songs.

The KinderPrep Program is designed to prepare each child for his or her formal education by focusing on social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development needs. We teach intentionally, using both teacher-directed and child-directed enrichment activities combined with opportunities for whole group, small group, paired, and one-on-one learning opportunities. We embrace classroom themes based on family, child, and teacher interests and needs. Worship is an important part of our school day as we sing Bible songs, pray,and celebrate Christian holidays. The curriculum utilizes the Get Set for School components including handwriting, language and literacy, and numbers and math. Assessments are based on NAEYC Standards and NM Early Learning Standards.
