Our classes are tailored to your child’s age and development. We intentionally plan learning experiences that are child focused and consider the individual child’s needs. We understand that play is the primary way children learn.
Toddlers South | Frogs
18 months to 36 months
Teachers | Mrs. Jenniffer Wohletz and Ms. Lynda Gibson
In Toddlers South, we have students from 18 months to 2 ½ years. We spend our days laughing, learning how to play with others, enjoying art, singing and dancing to silly songs, learning about Jesus’ love for us and how to share that love with others, reading stories, playing on our toddler playground with slides, sand, bubbles and cars. Come and have fun with us!
Toddlers North | Little Lemons
2 1/2 – 3 years old
Teachers | Ms. Chelsea Garcia & Ms. Jennifer White
In the Little Lemons, we have students from 1 ½ to 3 years old. Every day, the Little Lemons class learns to work together, play together and incorporate the Fruits of the Spirit in our dialogue with each other. We talk about self-control, having joy in our hearts and exercising patience with ourselves and classmates. A fun thing we do in our class is our attendance board. They get to move their picture from “not here” to “here”. It helps promote conversations and promotes name to face recognition. The Little Lemons take responsibility for this and are very serious about it. The best thing about having age appropriate expectations for the class is how frequently parents will notice these habits at home! Cleaning up after themselves, singing Jesus songs and taking turns with siblings without argument. Our favorite activity is playing in the sandbox outside or running wild in the gym or parish hall. We have lots of gross motor activity for our kids in the Little Lemons because while we have fun and play, we are learning! Our teachers support each child’s learning by meeting each child individually where they are. Whether your child has been in preschool before or not, they will be encouraged to grow and be their unique selves while setting realistic expectations, so they feel successful and proud of themselves.
2 ½ to 3 ½ years
Teacher | Ms. Angele Bruce
In Guppies, we have students from 2 ½ to 3 ½ years old. Each day, we enjoy making art, dancing, playing with friends, learning about Jesus, and playing outside. Throughout the year we start to learn about the alphabet, develop our social / emotional skills, and create some beautiful artwork. Our teachers support our students’ learning by offering hands-on activities, allowing for play based learning opportunities, and encouraging our students to be creative. We have so much fun each day in our Guppies class and we hope to see your students there!

Teachers | Ms. Allyson Morris & Ms. Marcie Cattau
In Butterflies, we have students from 3 to 4 years old. Every day we learn to play with our friends in a positive way by learning to be kind and patient and create new friendships.

Our teachers support each child’s learning by helping them be creative and guide their learning based on their own individual needs.

We have the flexibility to meet all the needs of the children.

The Rockets classroom has students ranging from 4 years old to 5 years old. Our class uses creativity, collaboration, and conflict management to inspire students with an opportunity to learn in a safe and nurturing classroom. The various domains of learning are taught throughout the year and include gaining the skills to help them read, write, build their math and science expertise, and Christian learning. We are all active learners and believe in our mission statement: Love Jesus, Love Others and Love Your Learning.
Before and After School Care – B.A.S.E. Camp
2 ½ years to 14 years
Teachers | Mrs. Susan Bredehoeft & Ms. Katie Sivak
Basecamp is for children ranging 2 ½ years old to 12 years and is offered every day from 3:15 PM to 6:00 PM. In Basecamp, students get to interact with a mixed group of children that they might not typically get to spend time with during the day because they are in different classes / age groups. Younger students learn from their older peers and older students get to be role models and many enjoy helping their younger friends – especially older siblings! We typically have an art activity or themed books for children to choose from that rotate throughout the year as well as our centers. Dramatic play and the science area are favorites! We serve snacks and have at least thirty minutes of gross motor playtime every day. We cannot wait to see you children there!
