Philosophy of Learning
The King's Garden is a creative preschool environment for children 3-5 years old. Because we believe that children learn best through play, our class room routines encourage active involvement, meaning- full experimentalism, and reinforcement through repetition. We also believe that young children learn best in an environment that allows them to interact with other children. Our classroom provides many learning stations with a rich variety of materials for children to manipulate. We believe that children progress through the same stages of development, but each at his/her own pace. Our well-designed learning stations allow children, at a variety of stages of development, to use the same materials in ways that are meaningful and appropriate for them.
The curriculum includes Biblical truths along with basic developmental strategies that combine to create a positive, caring atmosphere in which preschoolers are eager to learn. Our curriculum is based on monthly themes that provide young children with a wealth of information that they find fun and exciting. Materials and activities are introduced, which are both child-centered and teacher-directed to help build sensory, motor and language skills in each child.
As we bridge the gap between home and school, we guide children to a continued development of positive self image focusing on the wonderful individuals that God created each of them to be. We strive to plant within each child a love for learning, and even more importantly, a love for their Creator - Jesus Christ. We believe a Christ-centered approach to teaching creates within each child a hunger for a life-long relationship with Jesus.

Consider Being a Partner in Ministry
The King's Garden Christian Preschool has a portion of families who are among those not eligible for federally funded programs such as Head Start, yet cannot afford early childhood education for their children. By offering scholarships to these families, we are able to increase the amount of children who enter kindergarten prepared both academically and socially. Most importantly the Biblical teaching that the children experience at The King's Garden creates within each child a passion for a lifelong relationship with Jesus. The scholarship fund is dependent upon donations from generous people of our community of whom God has put on their heart to bless a family in this particular way. Please let us know if God has placed it upon your heart to bless a family in this way. All contributions are tax-deductible.
