MWCA uses both Creative Curriculum and Essentials Preschool Curriculum for preschool instruction. Creative Curriculum provides preschool children with opportunities to learn and practice new skills. It offers challenges just beyond their present level of mastery. Each teacher creates a classroom environment where children are safe and valued, and their physical and psychological needs are met.

MWCA offers a center-based learning environment where children choose activities in the following areas:

  • Blocks
  • Dramatic Play
  • Toys & Games
  • Art
  • Books
  • Sand & Water
  • Music & Movement
  • Cooking
  • Outdoor Play
  • Computer (3′ s & 4′ s)

Teachers interact with children as they play to further their learning, which aids in developing vocabulary skills, sensory awareness, large and small motor skills, and personal relationships. We also use Christian-based Essentials Preschool Curriculum to teach the following concepts:

  • Bible Stories and Principles

Values Essentials Preschool Curriculum provides teachers with Christian teaching strategies in the following areas:

  • Age-appropriate Lessons
  • Crafts & Play (Based upon Lessons)
