Children are a precious gift from God. While maintaining a Christian environment, our ministry will strive to meet the spiritual, social, physical, academic and emotional needs of all our children.

- To provide a safe environment for exploring and discovering

Our teachers use a variety of resources including the internet, resource books, ideas from conferences/trainings, A Beka curriculum, as well as their own creativity for planning developmentally appropriate activities to offer to the children. Lead teachers are responsible for the collaboration of resources to prepare curriculum that meets our VCP (Voluntary Certification Program) Regulations, is developmentally appropriate, meets the standards of the program and Director, as well as fosters the highest amount of learning. Our curriculum guides teachers' development and intentional implementation of learning opportunities consistent with our goals and objectives. Every teacher and staff member is introduced to the Indiana Department of Education's "Foundations for Young Children," the Indiana Academic Standards, through a mandatory online webinar. Our program has established goals that we strive to reach for each child. Those include: fostering a positive self-image, developing social skills, encouraging children to think, reason, question, and experiment (which promotes learning in math, science and social studies), enhancing physical development, and respect for cultural diversity.
Voluntary Certified Registered Ministry by the State of Indiana:
Our ministry abides by the guidelines set forth by the State of Indiana registered ministry standards and CCDF acceptance guidelines. In an effort to excel above these requirements, we also participate in the Voluntary Certification Program, which allows Registered Ministries the opportunity to improve its program equal to that of a licensed daycare. However, we view these only as minimum limits of the education and experience required for staff. Therefore, we strive to exceed these limits and hire persons who are most qualified at the time of hiring, while aiding our staff to improve as they grow their careers.
