Celebrating Me and My World, begins by celebrating the wondrous qualities of the children themselves and then connects them to the world and people around them. The class emphasizes skills in making friends, learning and playing cooperatively.

Kindergarten - Grade 1

Chalice Children helps children learn about their church and the values we embrace through rhymes, games, finger plays and art projects. The curriculum connects the church to the home and family through experiences appropriate to the natural religious development and curiosity of young children. Wonderful Welcome helps children explore how and why we are willing to welcome others into our lives. We welcome family members, peers, neighbors, new acquaintances, and even our animal friends and nature itself.
