"The Kingdom of Heaven Belongs to Kingdom Kids."
All of our programs focus on a targeted music and arts curriculum. Scientific American’s (2010) board of editors asserted, “Studies have shown that assiduous instrument training from an early age can help the brain to process sounds better, making it easier to stay focused when absorbing other subjects, from literature to tensor calculus.” Students in high-quality school music programs score higher on standardized tests compared to students in schools with deficient music education programs, regardless of the socioeconomic level of the school or school district.
Infant and Toddler Child Care Program
Kingdom Childcare and Learning Center strongly believes in and provides each infant with a well rounded curriculum that includes the following elements:
Safe and Secure Environment — We create a high-quality infant and toddler environment by planning and creating spaces that support infants’ and toddlers’ development, engagement, and overall well-being.
Social and Emotional Development — We motivate infants and toddlers to learn critical skills such as the ability to communicate, connect with others, resolve conflict, self-regulate, display kindness and empathy and cope with challenges.
Language Development —We care deeply about the development of language in babies and toddlers, in our context communication covers everything from crying, to understanding yes and no (receptive language), to babbling and the emergence of speech (expressive language).
Physical Development — We provide opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement.
Cognitive Development — We encourage infants' and toddlers' thinking skills to grow as they interact with the world and people around them, through consistent, nurturing experiences that help them make sense of the world.
Daily Reports — We provide daily growth and progress reports that keep parents informed about their child’s emotional, physical, and educational development.
3 and 4 Year Old Program
Developmentally-appropriate practices — Our cognitive learning curriculum and physical activity emphasis go hand-in-hand and reinforce one another in our developmental play model, we emphasize both and use movement to promote and teach cognitive development.
Hands-on involvement —Hands-on activities allow children to use their senses while learning. They see, touch, and move real objects to complete tasks. This means that letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and more are brought to life!
Decision-making and problem-solving skills — A critical part of our curriculum encourages young children’s social and cognitive development so they can learn that they are capable of making decisions, that these decisions have value, and that they can change the course of action.
Character development —We practice skills that promote character development, that build a reservoir of strength that the child can draw on throughout their lives. Self-esteem, confidence, courage, resilience, integrity, and forgiveness are examples of traits that we promote to sustain children at home, at school, and in the community.
Vocabulary — We encourage children’s vocabulary development so that they develop the language and literacy skills necessary to succeed in school through everyday conversations and interactions. We focus on using unfamiliar words, talk about what words mean, which helps expand a child’s vocabulary.
Social-emotional activities —We practice using social-emotional skills to help children persist on challenging tasks, to effectively seek help when they need it, and to be thoughtful in their actions.
Literacy skills — We develop emergent literacy, or reading readiness skills, teaching young children to learn to use verbal and nonverbal communication patterns, concepts of letter knowledge, and alphabetical principle.
Small group instruction —Our classroom environment is structured to help children make new friends, learn how to play and build relationships with others, while encouraging social interaction and creating an inclusive environment.
