Curriculum Programs

  • First Look combines child development and theology to create a comprehensive approach to influencing preschoolers and their faith. Our Biblical Curriculum is sound in the Gospel of Jesus following the first commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
  • Creative Curriculum is research based, child-centered curriculum recognized by the state and local schools as a pre-kindergarten readiness program. Creative Curriculum encourages children to be problem-solvers, discover new ideas and learn through hands-on environments.

Proverbs 8:17
I love those who love me,
 and those who seek me find me.
