Our Curriculum
 Our goals at God's Garden are to:

  • Demonstrate God's love for each child, their families, and all creation.
  • Encourage independence, foster growth of healthy self-concept, and develop a sense of responsibility.
  • Encourage development of empathy, cooperation, honesty, respect and altruism.
  • Promote receptive and expressive language skills and encourage emergent literacy.
  • Stimulate curiosity about the world.
  • Promote investigation, decision-making, persistence and problem-solving.
  • Strengthen motor skills and increase awareness of health and safety.
  • Support growing abilities to communicate ideas through the visual arts, drama, construction, music and movement.
  • Enhance imagination, spontaneity, and originality.
  • Inspire lifelong love of learning and love of God.
  • Provide a firm educational foundation in preparation for elementary school.

God's Garden offers a child-centered, integrated/thematic curriculum that utilizes a variety of developmentally appropriate, self-directed learning centers coupled with whole and small group teacher-directed activities.

Our curriculum has its foundation in the High/Scope educational approach that provides an "open framework" which teachers can adapt to the special needs and conditions of their class. The central tenet of the High/Scope approach is "active learning" - the belief that children learn best through active experiences with people, materials, events, and ideas rather than through direct teaching or sequenced exercises. To learn more about High/Scope, visit www.highscope.org.

While Christian Education is integrated into the secular themes being studied by each class, Chapel with the Pastor and supplemental Christian Education in the classroom is based on campus-wide themes. Examples of these themes include: Prayer, Obedience & Patience, The Birth of Jesus, The Easter Story, and God's Unconditional Love.
