OUR PHILOSOPHY

A Child’s Heart is built on the concept that children are born ready to learn. At A Child’s Heart, we strive to create a learning environment that is safe, stimulating and encouraging. Below are principles excerpted from  ABCJesusLovesMe and serve as the foundation for the curriculum. 

We believe children are blessings from God. He has created each child unique and special. Learning should be incorporated into the child's day instead of controlling his/her day. We believe preschoolers should be able to explore, play, and learn new things through trial and error; not through "drill and kill." Our simple and basic curriculum allows success for the most energetic child but allows for supplemental material to be added for the child who desires more sit-down activities. 

  • 1

    One

    Children develop knowledge of their world through active interactions with caregivers, peers, materials, and events.

  • 2

    Two

    Learning is sequential, building on prior understandings and experiences.

  • 3

    Three

    Learning proceeds at different rates in each area and each child; children will show a range of skills and understandings in any one area of development.

  • 4

    Four

    Learning in each area is interconnected. Young children learn best through experiences, which incorporate several areas of development.

  • 5

    Five

    Learning is embedded in a culture. Children learn best when their learning activities are rooted in a familiar cultural context.

  • 6

    Six

    Learning begins in the family, continues in early care and education settings, and depends on parent involvement and caregiver guidance.

Jeremiah 1:5 

Before I formed in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I set you apart.

"I absolutely love how the staff encourages all of the children to grow, not only in their walk through early education, but in their every day walk with Christ. This is a Christian faith based daycare that supports strength and growing from 6 weeks old to early school age. Working here has been an amazing blessing, and with each child that enrolls, we all get the chance to share our experiences and our own education to expand theirs."
