Suncreek Kid’s curriculum is based on a thematic framework. Learning materials and activities are organized around specific age appropriate units and objectives. Everything occurring at Suncreek Kids is intentional and aimed at meeting the 4 developmental needs of our students (Spiritual, Emotional/Social, Academic & Physical).
Core #1: Spiritual
Suncreek Kids believes nothing is more important than building a strong Christian foundation. We encourage children to learn Bible stories, scripture verses and participate in prayer while modeling God’s perfect love for mankind. Our students participate in weekly Chapel, and once a month our families are invited to join us and participate in this sweet and special time of worship.
Core #2: Social & Emotional
The BEST indicator of long-term academic success is the social-emotional health of a child. Suncreek Kids strives to help children develop the skills needed to become socially and emotionally intelligent individuals. Our teachers support and encourage our students as they learn to regulate their own emotions and behaviors, establish positive relationships, build age appropriate self-help skills, and participate cooperatively in group situations.
Core #3: Academic
Language Arts: Providing experiences that can shape the way children communicate through written and spoken word.
At Suncreek Kids we set the stage for literacy learning with language art activities that are fun, engaging, hands on, child centered and interactive.
Math: It's fun at Suncreek Kids!
Early math concepts are introduced using hands on manipulatives, catchy songs and age appropriate activities.
Science: God created a wonderful world for us to explore!
Children are naturally curious and we encourage them to use their 5 senses to investigate when we introduce simple science activities during class and outdoor play.
Music: It cultivates the mind and heart like nothing else can!
Our students attend music class daily using a large variety of musical styles, interactive songs and exciting props to get our bodies moving!
Art: Daily incorporation allows our students to explore creativity while expressing themselves.
At Suncreek Kids, we do both free art and planned art. When we value children’s creativity, their self-confidence soars!
Core #4: Physical
Fine motor: We use an abundance of activities for strengthening little hands.
Strengthening hand muscles, encouraging proper grips, building finger dexterity and hand-eye coordination are important first steps to writing.
Gross motor: Little kids need time daily to enjoy gross motor activities.
With preschoolers, active play that uses the large muscles in the legs, arms, and trunk is important for physical development. Learning to harness the power of those muscles to dance, run, jump, throw, catch and kick is key to healthy bodies and brains.
