STARTERS PROGRAM

The CCS Starters Program offers families the opportunity to enroll their children into a Christ-Centered Early Childhood Program.  We use a Reggio Emilia based approach paired with the Purposeful Design curriculum; emphasizing outdoor exploration and play, hands-on learning opportunities, nature education, and spiritual growth. This concept recognizes that children have multiple ways of thinking, playing, exploring, speaking and doing. The Reggio Emilia approach which encourages children to use every tool they have to express themselves. We believe children are made in God’s image and that if you, as Proverbs 22:6 says, "start children off on the way they should go when they are old they will not turn from it."  Our educators recognize the importance of building Godly character traits within a child and put that at the forefront of learning. We also believe our partnership with parents is a critical component of the learning philosophy along with building their child’s relationship with the Lord.
