Our Program

At YCW we believe infants can learn too!  We provide more than just babysitting. Your infant will be engaged in activities that will help them build their natural curiosity as they learn how to explore their world and grow.  Our nursery curriculum for them will include age-appropriate activities, visuals, songs and Bible stories. Aside from special events such as Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day, the focus will be on stories like God Made Me; I Am Special, Jesus Loves Me, God Gives Me Food, and God Made Animals.

As your toddler is learning more about their world and communicating, we at YCW desire to teach them even more. Our nursery curriculum for your toddler will introduce activities that include poems, colors, numbers, shapes, Bible stories supported with visual aids, songs and fingerplays.  Your toddler’s day will also involve age appropriate crafts, ways to improve their vocabulary, fine and gross motor skills such as painting, sorting, building and playing. Basic obedience and self care skills will also be taught. Furthermore, toddlers will be able to enjoy special events. Examples of these are Water Day, Pumpkin Festival, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and many more. Your toddler would be engaged in stories such as God Made All of Me; I Am Special, Thankfulness, Jesus’ Birth, God Made the Animals and God Created the World

As your child is growing and learning new things everyday, we at YCW want to help scaffold their learning. Our goal is to provide your 2 year old with everything they need to grow spiritually, mentally, and physically. We believe that scaffolded play is crucial at this age, and we will be providing the means for your child to do so through dramatic play, sensory play, and developing their fine and gross motor skills, They will also be introduced to colors, shapes, Bible stories, letters, music, and movement. Your two year old will also participate in our special events including: Water Day, Pumpkin Festival, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Cowboy Day, and many more. We are excited to learn and grow alongside your child!

While your child is learning how to interact socially, mentally, and physically, we will be guiding your child through each stage of learning. At YCW students will begin learning through circle time, books, centers, and crafts. They will be exploring the letters, colors, and shapes through differentiated themes and centers each month. They will also be participating in music, movement, and chapel times, along with our special events.

In our YCW preschool program, our goal is to prepare your child for Kindergarten. Students will learn how to write their name, letters, and numbers. They will work on mastering their letters, and the sounds they make, as well as participating in activities centered around them. They will be exploring the letters, colors, numbers and shapes through differentiated themes and centers each month. They will also be participating in music, movement, and chapel times, along with our special events.
