Our Mission

"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." - Proverb 22:6

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide a Christian Preschool which meets the needs of families through a loving and nurturing environment that supports learning in developmentally appropriate ways by Christian Teachers utilizing Biblically based principles and curriculum.

Philosophy

The Adams Farm Christian Preschool is designed to meet the spiritual, motional, social, physical, and intellectual needs of children in a safe and loving environment. Childhood should be a time of joy, love and adventure for all children and each child’s interests and developmental advances will be applauded, nurtured and expanded by our qualified and talented staff.

The curriculum is Biblically based and children will have the opportunity to develop and grow in their relationship with God. Lessons and daily activities provide age appropriate learning experiences including Bible lessons, music, dance, colors, shapes, numbers, alphabet, outside play along with arts and crafts to help each child explore their world and grow in a happy and secure manner. Each child’s individual accomplishments are valued and nurtured to help them reach their optimal level of cognitive, motor and social development.

Goals

The Adams Farm Christian Preschool is committed to…

Helping each child develop and grow spiritually. The children will participate in Bible lessons, songs and stories designed to help them explore the wonders of Christianity. They will also experience Chapel with lessons pertinent to the season and their level of understanding. A Christian age-appropriate curriculum is used in each classroom. Handwriting Without Tears and the Jesus Storybook Curriculum is used in the 4 yr. old and Pre-K classes.

Providing a safe, loving and stimulating environment for children to grow and develop. Children need to feel secure and cared for at all times. We provide a nurturing environment that enables children to feel safe, thereby freeing them to explore their world as individuals and to learn.

Helping each family maintain their child’s good health and promote physical development. Nutritious snacks will be served daily with hygiene practices introduced and encouraged. Activities designed to help develop large and small muscles will be provided daily.

Helping each child function effectively with peers and adults. Children will be encouraged to socialize with classmates in order to develop skills to be used throughout their lives. During the day, the classes may interact at play, music or Chapel. This grouping helps children learn from each other and respect individual differences and rates of development.

Helping each child develop his or her cognitive abilities to the fullest. An enormous amount of learning takes place from birth to age five. To foster as much learning as possible, educational games and activities are conducted to challenge and encourage each child. A major goal of our teachers is to be alert for the “teachable moments” – the moments during the course of the school-time when children are at their best for learning new concepts. The four-year-old classes will focus on the alphabet and numbers. In the 3 yr. old classes, letters and letter sounds are introduced. The 2 yr. old classes will learn about colors and shapes.
