In His Steps Academy classrooms are designed to provide excellent, age-appropriate learning environments that recognize and optimize every child’s uniqueness. Our first priority is to provide loving care and the Christian guidance children need. We want to share in and develop every child’s sense of wonder, warmth, and spontaneity. Our program is structured to provide age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities, as well as offer experiences in music, art, motor skill development, physical activities, and early literacy development. We believe that every child is unique, and we are committed to meeting the needs of children on an individual basis. We provide regular opportunities for new experiences and introduce concepts through play-based learning. Each child is encouraged to develop a positive self-concept, be curious, express themselves, learn to accept others, and know that they were fearfully and wonderfully created by God.
Teachers prepare hands-on thematic unit lessons utilizing learning centers such as books, art, blocks, nature, dramatic play, and manipulatives. Weekly music classes offer extra emphasis on learning simple songs using rhythmic instruments, sign language, and introducing basic music concepts. We love the outdoors and spend time in nature not only playing but using it as an outdoor classroom. In contrast to popular trends in modern education, In His Steps Academy offers something timeless: an education that helps shape the hearts and minds of children.
