​" Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

Great teachers and high quality programs matter

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) published the Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (SECCYD) in 2010. This was the most comprehensive study ever done following the long-term effects of child care at an early age on children’s social, emotional, intellectual, and language development through their teen years. Our teachers love working with kids. A great teacher really can make all the difference in your child’s future! The study was profiled by Ann Curry on the Today show detailing not only that “high quality child care” makes a positive impact on early childhood development, but also what constitutes and what parents should look for when searching for a “high quality child care center”.

At KCA, we believe that each child learns at their own unique pace and our goal is teach and give each child the opportunity to develop these core skills in a positive Christ-centered environment while partnering with parents to help prepare each child for a life of success.

Your child will learn and develop new skills through monthly activities and discovery projects. Our program provides the strongest research-based early literacy curriculum and seamlessly weaves solid content that captures children's natural curiosity about the world into an activity-centered day. The curriculum covers all domains of learning: Language and Literacy, Social Studies, Science, Mathematics, The Arts, Physical Development, and Social, Spiritual and Emotional Development.

At the core of all learning is a trusting and loving relationship. Our educational approach combined with a safe, loving, clean and nurturing environment, intentional teaching practices, and meaningful relationships will help your child grow, learn and thrive.

Our Pre-K program is based on OWL (Opening the World of Learning), which is a comprehensive age appropriate curriculum that prepares children for pre-k and kindergarten with ongoing assessment of research-based success predictors and playful, purposeful, and personalized instruction. 

 

OWL is based upon the belief that immersion in a learning-rich environment is critical but not sufficient. The environment and interactions must be thoughtful and purposeful. All parts of the day should be considered opportunities for learning.Instructional design and strategies set OWL apart. Our team is encouraged to be intentional in their actions and words.

The intense focus on conversation provides our students an unprecedented amount of oral language, critical thinking, and vocabulary instruction.Through the use of essential questions, teachers help children connect content to their experiences, which takes them beyond role learning and leads to thoughtful and reflective learning.

 

OWL is built upon a foundation of critical content area concept development. The literature ties to the concepts and vocabulary. OWL also provides daily English language development lessons designed to support English Language Learners. These lessons are tied to the key concepts and vocabulary of the day's instruction. 

For our Path Finders and Explorers, the ABCJesusLovesMe Curriculum is a comprehensive, research-based toddler and preschool curriculum for ages 1-5, focusing on Bible, academics, and development. Each curriculum contains goals and objectives to gauge the child's learning and growth. 

A lesson plan for each week will be posted on your child's parent board so that you are able to see and view the activities that your child is engaging in, as well as skills they will master in the 6 subject areas: Literacy, Math, Science, Social Studies, Art and Music. We weave in Biblical principles and integrate our Jesus Loves Me curriculum which include Bible stories, Bible verses and prayer.

Our curriculum supports the growth of children across all areas of their early childhood development and it will help prepare them for a lifetime of success. Our program aligns with Head Start indicators and it's consistent with NAEYC standards. Our program also nurtures the whole child and supports the growth of children across all areas of early childhood development of their social, emotional, motor, cognitive, physical and intellectual skills.  

 

Our students are immersed in a variety of resources and concepts. We provide the resources and materials to help inspire and teach them through art, music, logic games, hands-on investigations and a variety of other life learning experiences that will help them succeed!
