Monthly Christian themes are incorporated into the curriculum as well to provide an important spiritual dimension.  Basic concepts covered include colors, shapes, name recognitions, left/right, over/under, and counting/numbers.

Fine motor skills are emphasized and include tracing/writing, painting, pasting, cutting and coloring.

Students have outdoor playtime in the grassy area across West Street or  Alton Park across Grand River Avenue.  We use this as a learning opportunity, teaching them the safe and proper way to cross the street.
