Curriculum

At Des Moines Christian, our preschool teachers recognize each child as uniquely gifted by God and provide experiences each day to help children grow. We use The Creative Curriculum®, which is built on the philosophy that young children learn best by doing, to integrate learning in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology. Our goal is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive, and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.

We strive to develop the whole child focusing on the following areas:

Spiritual Development
A comprehensive Bible curriculum--including stories, worship, and sensory experiences--encourages children to discover God's world.

Social/Emotional Development
Large group, small group, and individual activities foster Christ-like behavior towards others.

Physical Development
Students develop small and large motor skills through active play, exploration, and hands-on learning.
 
Cognitive Development
Children acquire learning skills such as the ability to solve problems, ask questions, and use words to describe their ideas, observations, and feelings.

Language Development
Developmentally appropriate activities such as letter recognition and phonetic awareness foster a literacy rich environment.
