Registration Information 2006 - 2007 

Philosophy:     The Leaksville United Methodist Church Child Development Program is a half-day, morning program designed to develop the cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and creative needs of two-, three-, and four-year-old children.  Our program philosophy is firmly grounded in the understanding that the education of young children must consider and be reflective of the following three criteria: 

  •      Realistic expectations of the ages and stages of young children (necessary to guide/direct the curriculum choices for activities, materials, interactions, and experiences that are safe, healthy interesting, achievable, and yet challenging):
  •       Respect for the strengths, interests, and needs of individual children; and,
  •       Respect for the diverse social and cultural contexts of all children. 

Curriculum:     Using a literature-based curriculum, a broad variety of appropriate, high-quality children?s literature is used as the foundation for designing and planning the child-centered environment and daily activities.  Building a curriculum around carefully selected children?s books provides structure and promotes pre-reading skills.  Additionally, such a curriculum is flexible enough to consider and incorporate the children?s interest as well.  Both philosophy and curriculum are supported by the National Association for the Education of Young Children?s Revised publication of Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs. 

Class Size:   Class sizes are limited to a maximum of eight (8) children per teacher ratio.  Two-year old classes have an assistant teacher.
