Students in Early Childhood go beyond just classroom learning. Extracurricular experiences are a vital part of educating the whole child.
Music – Every child has the opportunity to learn about composers and music history along with music theory and composition. The music classroom is a great place to find a child’s creative side through the use of hands-on teaching. This program combines a unique technique of bodily response to rhythm and music using improvisation and artistry. Another wonderful tool in the music class is the Technology Music Learning Zone which gives every student a chance to compose and perform like a real musician.
Art – The early childhood art program is designed to teach children to appreciate the beautiful world God has made and to see His artistic craftsmanship through the world of fine art. Students are presented with various projects based on the elements of art: color, form, line, shape, space, texture and value. These projects help inspire students to express themselves while experiencing the use of different media. Art history and exposure to the works of famous artists are interjected into the curriculum throughout each project.
Science Lab – Early Childhood visits the Science lab monthly, where hands on labs and experiments teach children how to utilize the scientific method.
Field Trips – Students in the early childhood division are provided many opportunities to learn off campus. Field trips are designed to be an extension of the classroom. Local favorites include the Louisiana Arts and Science Museum, the Pumpkin Patch and the zoo. While off-campus, students are engaged in interactive activities to achieve maximum learning.
