Infant Program

The first year of life is a critical time for brain development as well as social and emotional development. Our staff works in partnership with each infant’s family to set goals for him/her and to continuously evaluate progress towards these goals.  Infant classes are staffed to ensure a ratio of 4 children to 1 adult. At the time of enrollment, each infant is assigned to a primary caregiver. Primary caregiving provides continuity of care and allows each baby to develop a secure relationship with someone special in the program.  

Toddler Program

The toddler age group is a diverse one, and each child is different. We recognize and encourage these differences, and our toddler teaching team practices a variety of strategies that allow for each child to begin defining his/her own sense of independence while still being dependent on the adults caring for and teaching him/her. We maintain a ratio of 5 children to 1 adult for younger toddlers and a 6 child to 1 adult ratio for older toddlers.  

Preschool Program

Preschool is the beginning of a very exciting time in the life of a young child. Our days are filled with a variety of learning opportunities that become the building blocks for each child’s preparation for kindergarten. Our individualized assessment and planning strategies provide a comprehensive preschool program that prepares your child for kindergarten. Pre-kindergarten is a year of tremendous growth and development as the four-year-old turns five and becomes kindergarteners. The children transition from our program prepared for success in their school years to come.

Our Curriculum

We are excited to provide a curriculum with goals and objectives to gauge the child's learning and growth. The curriculum will be consistent and pervasive throughout the center. It will empower teachers and focus activities to enable children to learn through play. The curriculum is called ABCJesusLovesMe Preschool Curriculum.  It is a comprehensive, research-based preschool curriculum focusing on Bible, academics, and development.

Faith Builders Day Care agrees with the philosophy of the ABCJesusLovesMe Preschool Curriculum.  We believe children are blessings from God.  He has created each child unique and special.  Learning should be incorporated into the child's day instead of controlling his/her day.  We believe preschoolers should be able to explore, play, and learn new things through trial and error; not through "drill and kill."  This curriculum engages the most energetic child but allows for supplemental material to be added for the child who prefers more sit-down activities.  
Each week the curriculum will have focused objectives for:
  • Bible and Bible song 
  • Memory Verse (2-4 years)
  • Poetry/Rhyming
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Gross Moter Skills
  • Art and Visual Perception Skills
  • Math - Number Sense and Shapes
  • Letter Formation
  • Pre-Reading
  • Colors
  • Self-Care
ABCJesusLovesMe is a faith based curriculum.  Weeks 1 - 42 will cover the Bible stories beginning with Creation and ending with Jonah.  Week 43 is a review of the Old Testament, looking for God’s promised, forever King. Weeks 44-52 will focus on the life of Jesus.  The NIV is the most commonly used translation.  This decision is based on the version that is easiest to convey the meaning of a passage to a preschooler.  ABCJesusLovesMe has a clear statement of faith and is available upon request.
