Our mission is to honor, encourage and nurture children ages birth thru five years, using a Biblically based curriculum and age-appropriate learning environment to ultimately lay the foundation for Christ centered living. We believe that children are a gift from God. Every child is important and is respected. We seek to establish positive personal interactions with each child and his/her family. We believe that children learn best through play. Daily activities are planned to guide spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Parents serve one of the most important roles in child development and are encouraged to participate in parent conferences and classroom activities.
The Weekday Education Director desires to meet with all prospective parents, conducting a thorough tour and in-depth discussion of the parents’ needs and preferences. Both parties must feel comfortable and confident that the placement into Weekday is a good fit. Once this is done, the child is placed on the Waiting List.
Once given a tour, you will be placed on our waiting list. Prospects will remain on the waiting list for up to a year. After that time, the parents will need to contact us should they wish to remain on the waiting list. The infant waiting list remains fairly long, so tours should be made early in pregnancy. Spaces are generally more available in the toddler and preschool classes due to the change in needed ratios.
Once a space becomes available, you will be contacted and given enrollment papers. The registration/yearly fee is $100 (due upon registering and/or every August). Please call the Weekday office for current tuition information.
The Director will invite you to a personal parent/teacher orientation during the school day if entering during the middle of the school year, or a group orientation if entering at the beginning of a school year.
Wee Learn curriculum provides activities that not only expose the children to the six areas of development listed in the Florida School Readiness Performance Standards, but also helps lay a foundation for spiritual growth. It is play-based, using hands-on experiences with age appropriate Learning Activity Centers.
The VPK teachers supplement the curriculum with A Beka’s phonetic approach to reading. The students will learn vowel sounds, consonant sounds, blending sounds, words, and then sentences to help them build a firm foundation for learning.
Each week, the teachers will introduce new Bible verses and stories as well as infused traditional prayers throughout the day. Infants start by learning that God made them and then they hear about God’s expanding love to others. The teachers regularly pray for the children throughout the day and model Godly virtues for them to follow.
