CHCA offers a wonderful full day program with many hands on learning opportunities. We value a challenging and stimulating learning environment. Our classrooms are a place where the wonder and curiosity of learning provide a foundation for lifelong achievement. We believe the preschool experience should be an enjoyable journey, not a race. This journey will develop the child spiritually, intellectually, and socially. This development will give the student a strong sense of self worth and confidence. Each student will carry these attributes into every other life experience.
Our K2 program is full of fun, interesting and developmentally appropriate activities for the two year old child. We encourage each student in learning with hands-on activities. We also integrate music, drama, literature, math manipulatives, and science into our daily routines. We believe that God created all of us. With this in mind, our loving staff creates opportunities for our two year olds to develop socially, intellectually and spiritually. We utilize biblical based curriculum for character development and enrichment. Our themed units assist us in reaching our goals of learning. Also, you will find our classroom environment to be filled with enriching activities that appeal to the whole child.
K3 and K4
Our K3 and K4 programs offer a well rounded program that is developmentally appropriate and biblically based for the three and four year old child. Three and four year olds love to explore. Our highly qualified teaching staff will guide the exploring students into learning. This is accomplished through our K3 and K4 curriculum, from BJU Press, as well as hands-on experiences. Our K3 curriculum, Pathways for Preschool, provides hands-on learning activities as well as daily interactive circle times which allow children to learn and have fun! Our K4 curriculum, Footsteps for Fours, provides hands-on learning as well as group activities that integrate math, science, social studies, phonics, hand writing and prereading lessons. Our K3 and K4 students also enjoy computer, physical education, music, art, Spanish and library. You will find our classroom environment to be loving, fun and full of learning opportunities!
Our K5 program, we strive to make school an exciting, inviting, creative, fun, intellectually stimulating place where children want to come each day. Our K5 curriculum, Focus on Fives from BJU Press, helps students receive age-appropriate introductions to social studies, science, math, handwriting, phonics and reading. We recognize that children develop at different levels. We use multi-sensory approaches to learning, so all children reach their goals. Our students also enjoy music, art, Spanish, library and physical education. We also host many different activities for our K5 students throughout the year including our Big/Little Buddy program, which is one of our favorite programs at CHCA! In this program, K5 students are paired with our Senior students and throughout the year they are involved in several fun activities together, which help build lasting relationships and allows our Seniors to have a positive impact in the lives of our K5 students.
We firmly believe God has created each of us as individuals; therefore we strongly value each child. With this in mind, our staff in dedicated to work with parents for the enjoyable development of each child. Interwoven in our program are the biblical principles of faith and trust in God, respect for others, self, and the world around them. As we work together on these principles, we hope to foster a life long love for learning and for God.
