DAILY ACTIVITIES

We strive to provide your child with well-rounded care to help them develop their whole self: mentally, emotionally, socially, physically, and spiritually. During the day, your child will have vigorous play (including outdoor play as weather permits), snack and mealtimes, reading time, center time (indoor play with various toys and learning materials), circle time, nap/quiet time, and craft time. Students two and older also get to participate in various levels of worksheets or coloring sheets to help them learn letters, colors, numbers, shapes, and animals. Students at ECS participate in Bible time where they sing songs, learn motions, and enjoy interactive story time. Your school-aged child in our Kindergarten class will be “in school” from 8am-3:30pm. Many of those students are also enrolled in after school care where they join the Pre-K students for afternoon activities and play until 5:30pm.

ABOUT US //

 

Eastridge Christian School and Daycare opened in 1995 and is a ministry of Eastridge Park Christian Church. We are a non-profit organization that offers full day care for children ages 6 weeks through Kindergarten. We are an early education program that uses the Abeka curriculum beginning in the two-year-old room. This curriculum provides excellence in education from a Christian perspective.

In our facility, we encourage children to grow as individuals in many ways. We use learning centers and multi-sensory instruction as well as free art expression. We focus on early reading skills so the children grow into lifelong readers, thus becoming lifelong learners.

Our student and teacher ratios are low so that all our children receive the special attention they deserve to promote learning. We strive to teach children the morals and values needed to be strong Christians in the world today.

MEET THE STAFF
 
 
Each of our staff members and teachers are professionals who are hired only after we have run extensive background checks. Additionally, newly hired staff cannot enter any classroom until they have completed multiple hours of training on safe childcare as well as child development and learning stages. In the classrooms, our staff members give personal attention to each child throughout the day, facilitating important mental and social development.
