Our Mission: We feel the best place for preschool children to learn and develop is in the home, surrounded by a loving family. We also know that it is sometimes difficult in today’s world for this to occur, due to economic necessities, which may compel both parents to enter the work force. What we hope to achieve is a program which provides the highest degree of care and nurturing, based upon the Biblical principles of love, instruction, and discipline. It is our sincere hope that our Early Learning Center will not be seen as a substitute for the home, but as an acceptable childcare alternative for those who need it.
Our Goal: Our children will develop social skills through organized center time and “free” playtime. They will broaden their knowledge by being read to, listening to music and singing, learning from others through play and sharing of toys.
Our most important goal is that our children will develop a love for God and the Bible. Children will receive religious training based upon the precepts of Biblical Christianity, free of man-made creeds or doctrine. We hope that you and your child will find the time spent at Jefferson Christian Academy Early Learning Center to be both educational and pleasurable.
Our Program: The Jefferson Christian Academy Early Learning Center is designed for children 8 weeks to 3 years old. Hours of operation are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday (except holidays). Please see the attached schedule for the Early Learning Center closings. Children are admitted to the program on a space available basis, without regard for race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Although every effort will be made to accommodate children with special physical needs, the JCA Early Learning Center is not equipped to care for children with severe physical, mental or emotional disabilities.
Our program is designed to aid in the development of large motor skills, fine motor skills and the socialization process. In our two and three year old classes, we use the “Letter of the Week” curriculum to introduce children the alphabet. Our curriculum for the crawlers through the three-year-olds includes language, art, number concepts, music and social studies.
The most important part of our program is the daily Bible lessons your child will receive. These lessons will be taken directly from the scriptures and will tell the lives of the great men and women of the Bible.
