CHAPEL

All 3 year olds and Pre K students attend chapel. Large group chapel is held on Monday mornings. Teachers share age appropriate bible stories and verses in each classroom, and lead prayer before snack to support family efforts to promote early God awareness. Stories, songs, and activities promoting, kindness, helping others and developing a grateful heart, are used to promote love of God and others.  Families of all faiths are welcome at YCS. We believe that each child is precious in the sight of God.  

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”   Psalm 139

FINE MOTOR FUN

With the guidance of Tracey Bell OTR/L, our three and four year old classroom plans promote writing readiness and fine motor skills.  Emphasis is on providing varied activities that strengthen fine motor skills with special care to start at each child’s developmental skill level. Fun tasks and activities are organized so each child can move forward at their own pace.  Our Panda’s are proud of their draw a person creations.

MUSIC

At YCS music is part of every day. Exposure to all forms of music  and instruments help children experience the range of emotion that music conveys.  Our music teacher, Jared Rodehorst meets with every class each week. With a joyful, inviting spirit. his lesson plans are created to support classroom learning themes.  Music, movement, and rhythm  are the basis of every music class.  A  Christmas program is presented for parents by our 3′s and PreK classes.  The age appropriate format is a healthy way for young children to experience the positive excitement of performance.
