Typical day and activities A healthy balance of spiritual, social, and academic themes are lived out in the early childhood classrooms. While there are variations between 3, 4, and 5-year-olds, a typical day includes a Bible lesson, some academics with letters and numbers, etc., and play time/physical activities. Children work with letters, numbers, colors, music, art, and scientific observation. Organized play includes structure building, dress-up, and themed centers.

Staff details We are a very diverse community. In addition to "Anglo" families, school families include many backgrounds from Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Around 33% of our student body have Latino origins. We also have a growing population for whom Romanian is the primary language in the home. In this melting pot, students and staff are unified, encouraging, and supportive, regardless of differences.
