  • About

    Our early childhood programs at The Church in the Gardens are consistent with research that supports learning through play and center-based activities. Our curriculum is designed to address the multiple intelligences of each student and supports every child as he/she becomes a successful, lifelong learner.

  • Curriculum

    We offer a diversified, multicultural program; a print-rich environment; hands-on, developmentally-appropriate small group instruction; a music/movement program that promotes fine and gross motor skills; and reinforced acceptance of others by teaching the basic strategies for coping with issues that may arise when our students enter elementary school.


    We strive to provide continuity of live instruction. There are only a few days anticipated to be asynchronous learning.


    Our comfortable and air-conditioned classrooms are organized into learning centers that provide a variety of opportunities for creativity, exploration, and discovery. Children have access to developmentally appropriate toys, puzzles, games, and arts and crafts—as well as a library, math/science centers, painting easel, sand/water table and dramatic play area.


    We provide an indoor gym program and outdoor play areas to support physical well-being, as well as to provide hands-on instruction as our students learn the important skill of following directions. All activities are well supervised by our professional and qualified staff members.


    We have received awards for our high quality child care program.
