Social emotional skills development We model social concepts such as "please" and "thank you," have daily classroom conversations and community-building discussions, explore similarities and differences between children, and encourage cooperation with other children. We focus on developing character by being kind, loving, gentle, forgiving, helpful, honest, and first time joyful obedience.
Math skills development We encourage the exploration of the physical properties of materials, use daily calendar activities to teach about sequence of events, patterns, and routines, and support the learning of cognitive skills such as counting, making predictions, testing, and drawing conclusions. We focus on one to one correspondence, making mathematical connections, simple addition and subtraction, and more and less than.
Speech development We use storytelling and word games to help your child practice imitating and responding, asking questions, and following simple directions. As children get older, we stimulate vocabulary development by prompting imitation and repetition of words and sentences, build alphabet recognition through play with letters and writing centers, and strengthen conversation skills with group sharing and reading experiences. We focus on letter recognition and sounds through our reading and writing curriculum.
Reading skills development We focus on letter recognition and sounds through our reading and writing curriculum. We have many language opportunities, such as story dictations, reading centers, writing centers, journaling, and letter related games and activities. We focus on putting sounds together to form words, creating blends, reading site words, and eventually begin reading.
Typical day and activities TCP provides a safe climate for children to develop spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. We have fun, planned activities that promote learning. A typical morning includes circle time, centers, outdoor play, snack, and Bible time. Full days offer time for lunch and naps in addition to our activities. Our classrooms provide a variety of materials and manipulatives for exploration and learning.
