Valley Baptist Preschool combines two different curricula for our students. First, we use the Creative Curriculum published by Teaching Strategies. In addition to that, we incorporate the Weekday Early Education (WEE) Christian curriculum published by Life Way Christian Resources.
During each day children learn basic life skills, reading, math, and study the Bible. Learning areas in the classroom include dramatic play, manipulatives, science, blocks, creative arts, music, puzzles, library, discovery table and computers in classrooms for 3 years olds and older. The children also have play time in our church gym or on the playground (weather permitting). The children have a periodic music time. Routinely special guests come in from the surrounding community to provide exciting experiences for our kids. Each month, the teachers send home a unit letter to keep parents informed on the studies planned for that month.
In order to utilize the curriculum to meet the needs of each individual, students assessments occur in the fall and spring of the year using the state approved Ages and Stages Questionnaire. Combining assessment results with parent input enables the teacher to develop a learning plan for the individual needs of your child.
