Teachers use Zoophonics letter curriculum, along with educational themes to reinforce letter, number and name recognition. Zoo-Phonics is a multi-sensory, kinesthetic method to teaching phonemic awareness and letter recognition. It uses animals in the shapes of letters for easy recognition, along with movements for each given letter. In addition, the Playschool has added Handwriting Without Tears that embraces a multi-sensory approach with hands-on techniques and activities.

Learning centers and small group instruction are used daily. Goals for the 3-year class include strengthening fine and gross motor skills, learning independence, following classroom rules, improving on self-help skills and exploring the concepts behind early literacy, creativity and math skills.Students will focus on letter recognition, shapes, colors, positional words, one to one counting, number recognition and more...all through the fun of play!

Bible stories are incorporated into the curriculum and the 3-year-old class attends Chapel twice a month with church pastor, Denise Kilgo-Martin.Music/creative movement is held weekly, children visit the school library bi-weekly and yoga is held monthly.
