Learning

Our program planning and practices reflect that all children are gifts from a loving God. Learning through play is how children thrive and it is an active process.

We believe that:

  • Each child is a child of God with unique patterns and timing of growth.

  • Children's play is fundamental to their development.

  • Children learn from each other.

  • Children's natural curiosity leads to many learning activities.

  • Children need an environment based on trust and structured freedom to be self-reliant and to use their own initiative.

Program At A Glance

Toddlers,
2's, 
and 3's

Diverse Kindergarten

Through small group settings, we are able to develop a solid foundation by teaching the whole child (academic, social, and emotional).  Our unique and play-based curriculum is engaging and encourages innovation, collaboration, and imagination.  

Jr. Kindergarten
(4 yrs old)

Our Jr. Kindergarten program is where we begin creating the building blocks to prepare your child for kindergarten.  Children learn through play, engaging in multiple fine and gross motor activities.  Fine motor development is key in preparing your child for writing.

Our Pre-K teachers work closely with our K-5 staff to ensure readiness and a seamless transition into our kindergarten program.  Our Jr. Kindergarten students have the option to add-on after school specials throughout the school year.

Kindergarten/1st Grade Combo
(5 yrs +)

IMG_6660_edited.jpg

Kindergarten can be a challenging transition from preschool, for both the parent and the child.  We work together to ensure we are meeting each student's needs and maximizing their learning potential.   By keeping our classroom sizes smaller than the average kindergarten/1st grade class (2:12 teacher:student ratio), we are able to provide individual attention and create an environment where your child is excited to learn!  

How does a combination class work?  

In the basic skill areas of language and mathematics, children are grouped according to skill levels using grade-appropriate textbooks. In social science, S.T.E.A.M, and art, concepts are often introduced to the entire class with the follow-up activities assigned with grade level materials.

 

Instructional strategies  include whole class, small group, and/or individual instruction.

 

Upon completion, students are academically, socially, and emotionally ready to transition into elementary school.

Our summer program helps students retain the knowledge they've learned throughout the school year.  Not only is it fun, but we focus on making sure your child has developed the skills needed before entering the next school year.  

Moms'
Day Out

(12 months through 2 years)

Toddler Playing Drums

Moms' Day Out is our school-year ministry for kids ages 12 months through 2 years old, hosted by Bethany Lutheran.

Our talented teachers and caretakers provide a secure and loving environment for children to learn and grow. Our busy parents have used MDO to get a weekly break, meet friends, run errands, or simply relax.  Weekly sign-ups are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
