St. Philip’s early childhood curriculum is planned with the young child in mind. It is culturally and linguistically responsive, challenging, engaging, and developmentally appropriate. The curriculum focuses on the development of cognitive, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical skills. It builds on the child’s prior learning and experiences. Hands-on activities promote skill development in the areas of literacy, math, science, social studies, art, and music. During “Jesus Time” the children learn about Jesus as their Savior through Bible stories, songs, and prayers. Children have the opportunity to share God’s love with family and friends.
Children learn as they play with different materials provided during the course of the day. Through play children find out about their world and how things work. Play provides children with the opportunity to practice what they are learning. The children learn how to make choices, develop self-confidence, and learn life skills.
