God’s Little Acre offers a stimulating learning environment with strong Christian values to preschool-aged children. The preschool currently operates five days a week, offering classes for three and four-year-old children and is open to all families of the surrounding communities. The curriculum of this program is based on a combination of traditional teaching methods with an emphasis to “hand’s-on” learning, giving the children opportunities to use their five senses to learn.
The daily schedule consists of large group learning as well as center-time. Large-group learning is a time for children to learn basic skills. Center-time is when the children work and play independently or with small groups of friends at various centers; children are given chances to work on the computers, paint at an easel, write a story in the writing center, measure and pour in the sensory table, create a theme related art project, dance to music, climb on the jungle gym, build a tower and mix ingredients for a snack.
We host a Fall Festival in September. In December, the children participate in a Christmas program. In late winter we have the annual Pancake & Sausage Breakfast.
In the spring we have the annual Grandparents Breakfast. To end the year, we have a traditional Graduation Ceremony for the Pre-K class who will be moving on to Kindergarten in the fall. Some of these events help raise money to ensure a creative and stimulating environment for the students without raising the cost of tuition.
