Playing to Learn... Learning to Play.
It is believed that all children develop at their own rate in the following areas:
This view is based on the Scripture, "Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." (Luke 2:52). It is evident that God knew that even Jesus had to grow and develop into adulthood. We focus on all areas of development to bring growth to the whole child and to "equip them for Christian leadership."
The educational and play based philosophy at Christ the King are based on the God-centered worldview that God's law, principles, ethics and standard are absolute truth, that the Bible is the inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17), and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and Creator of all things (Colossians 1: 15-19). These beliefs guide the focus of our Early Childhood Center. Our high quality early childhood program teaches children to think creatively so they may succeed in a complex and ever-changing world. Purposeful play is developmentally appropriate.
