To encourage learning about Christian faith, children are taught about God and His love through the Center's atmosphere and daily activities, including Bible stories, prayers, music, and daily conversations. Christian values, such as sharing and kindness, are incorporated into daily planning and guidance techniques.
Early learning experiences are critical for a child's development. The curriculum of Faith Child Care is designed to align with the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards and to provide learning experiences which enhance every aspect of a child's spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth. Goals set for weekly learning opportunities are based on the current needs of the children in each room.
Classrooms are arranged with equipment and materials appropriate for the ages of the children in each room based on the Environment Rating Scales (ITERS and ECERS). Once the children reach the toddler rooms, classrooms are arranged in learning centers such as blocks, dramatic play, sensory table, small manipulative materials, creative art, science, literacy and music areas.
