PreK 3 Classroom

BRIDGES along with the WEE Learn curriculum provides a framework on which teachers can build an early childhood program that allows children to grow and develop as Jesus did—in “wisdom and stature” and in “favor  with God and man” (Luke 2:52).  A child’s growth and development is viewed as a process, not an event.  Development begins when the child is conceived and continues throughout life.  Our curriculum will provide a range of activities which are designed to meet the needs of 3-year-olds at their level of development along the growth continuum. Teachers provide guidance and activities in each unit to help each child develop language, reading, writing, and other foundational skills appropriate to his or her stage of development.

Physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual development are equal in importance.  The teacher will select activities which provide a balanced program of early childhood education.

Our curriculum is developed around themes which provide opportunities for children to learn about God’s world and how to live in it.  Activities embrace physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual development in each theme topic.  The themes are designed to help lay a foundation for understanding God, Jesus, the Bible, the church, self, others and the natural world.  Teachers incorporate activities for individuals and small groups that will meet the specific needs and interest of each PreK 3 child.
