About Us

Philosophy

We are committed to provide our students with a child centered, faith based, and academically driven program in a nurturing, playful environment.

We believe children learn best during play.  Our learning environment is very child friendly with many manipulatives, colorful images, objects to explore, and many different things to do and make.  Our program offers a wide variety of activities: group lessons, stories, self-guided play, music and movement, arts enrichment, crafts, and cooking.  Our goal is to help guide the child into the world with a sense of respect for self, others, God and to also develop a life long love of learning.

Our Programs

Learning Through Play

Nursery:0-2

Part Time or Full Time

This group is nurtured and cared for by our teachers that try and follow schedules set by baby and parent.  The nursery has many age appropriate furniture and toys.  Music and stories are read daily while this group learns to explore and grow.

The Caterpillars: 2-3 Year Old Class

Part Time or Full Time

This class will focus on socialization, beginning language art skills, and beginning math concepts.  Learning to share and interact with others is foundational to a child's development and future success.  Cooperation, personal boundaries, and conflict resolution are key skills to teach at this age.  Letter, shape, number, and color recognition are also taught using a variety of teaching methods and styles.

The Butterflies: 4-5 year old class (Pre-K)

Part Time and Full Time

This class will emphasize phonemic awareness, pree-spelling, ahdnwriting, and number value concepts.  Recognizing and matching a sound with a letter is a key step in learning to read so the class focuses on phonics daily.  Matching a quantity with a number is a basic math skill worked on which then advances into simple addition, patterning, and sequencing.  Handwriting is also a concept highlighted each week in class and then also encouraged to be continured at home with the child's parents.  We also continue to guide the children through conflict resolution and acceptable social interactions to help ease them into the school years ahead.

Before and After School Care: 6+ Years

Part Time-Full Days Available for School Days if available

We help kids get on buses and walk them onto The Greenleaf Academy campus.  When the kids are out of school in the afternoon, we transition them off the bus or pick them up from The Academy.  School age children will have a snack, time to play, and then time for them to do homework.

Summer Program

Part Time and Full Time

We are open year round and offer fun Preschool themes throughout the summer with a lot of water play incorporated.  We are hoping to offer a summer camp program for school ages kids in the future.

Bible and Character Education

Non Denominational Christian

Each month we will highlight one character trait, as well as teach two Bible Stories.  Character education and Bible education are taught to instill proper moral behavior, ultimately developing a sense of community and moral responsibility within each child.
