Abeka early literacy curriculum along with ACSI Bible curriculum work in tandem to lay a foundation providing our preschool students opportunities to learn about God’s world and how to live in it. Activities which cultivate the physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual development are introduced and implemented based on thematic topics for the purpose understanding God, Jesus, the Bible, the church, self, others, and the natural world. Teachers plan individual, small-group, and large-group activities which will meet the specific needs and interests of each child.
Along with foundation forming curriculum for preschool and early childhood education is the addition of the movement lab called, “Ready Bodies, Learning Minds.” This program offers a powerful approach to sensory integration, motor learning, and academic success. The activities are designed to stimulate and develop the reflex, tactile, proprioceptive, vestibular, and visual and auditory systems. The goal for the program is to help children develop the skills necessary for learning readiness and mastery of their environment. Although many of the skills are motor based, handwriting, sitting still, paying attention, speaking, and behavior are all performances based on a child’s ability to maneuver and function in his environment. The more aware he is of his environment and the more he learns about the sensations of his own movement, the better he can control himself and accomplish tasks.
