Purpose & Philosophy

Our program is an extension of First United Methodist Church Killeen’s mission, which is to meet the needs of children and parents in the congregation and surrounding communities.  Our purpose is to provide quality child care in a wholesome Christian environment.  We believe that every child is a child of God and should have every opportunity to develop physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually to their fullest potential.

Curriculum

Semester units with a weekly theme are planned and implemented year round.  A weekly lesson plan is written by the teachers and carried out in the center for children 12 months and older.

Learning Centers included in the classroom are:

            -Arts                                         -Woodwork
            -Science                                 -Sensory Play
            -Manipulatives                  -Music
            -Pre-writing Skills          -Story Time
            -Family Living                 -Finger Plays
            -Blocks                                  -Calendar Time

 

Outdoor play is offered two times a day to develop large motor skills, weather permitting.  Spiritual development is met through a weekly bible verse, weekly Children’s Chapel, and religious songs and prayer at snack and meal times.  In the summer all children are encouraged to take part in Vacation Bible School (VBS).

Special activities such as field trips and special guest speakers are also part of the curriculum.  These activities are planned to enhance the weekly curriculum.  Field trips are planned once a month for children 3 years and older.
