Centerville Baptist Children’s Program has offerings for infants through kindergarten, and before and after school care for school aged children.
The infant program prioritizes quality time between the child and the provider. Specialized, trained caregivers dedicate their time to guaranteeing your child’s safety, security, and happiness. Our nursery provides a warm, loving environment where infants receive individualized attention and care. Through educational toys and age appropriate activities such as music, story time, and sensory play, your child will form the foundation blocks for later learning.
Our twos class offers a nurturing environment to foster social and emotional growth in our youngest learners. Children engage in a variety of activities aimed at cognitive, language, and motor skill development. Children participate in music, art, science, nature, and age appropriate literacy lessons each day.
The structured program activities provide opportunities for children to build confidence in their own abilities and talents. Acceptable social skills are reinforced in a small group environment. Art projects are designed to be process oriented, allowing the child to take pride in his/her own work. This class focuses on building relationships with peers, making and expressing choices, empathy, and exploring letters and numbers.
The fours program provides opportunities to explore ideas and discover concepts that help with the transition to Kindergarten. Early academics focus on introduction of phonics, math, science, social studies, music and art. Thematic classrooms will incorporate academic lessons into the themed unit. All four year old classrooms participate in a computer class each week.
Kindergarteners receive individual and small group attention from experienced teachers. Our class size is small, with an average class having 12 students. Kindergarteners are immersed in high interest monthly themes such as water, nocturnal animals, vehicles, plants, oviparous animals, and birds. These themes serve as the “umbrella” for the brain-based, hands-on learning activity centers. Reading, writing, and math skills are seamlessly incorporated into every area of curriculum.
