Our Curriculum
We use the A Beka curriculum in our Threes, Fours, and Kindergarten classes.  Their purpose: "The God-given ministry of Christian schools is to lead young people to Christ and train them in the Bible, Christian character, language, and traditional subject matter.  Today's students need to be taught the accumulated wisdom of the past from God's point of view and trained in the way that they should go {Proverbs 22:6}.  This lays a firm foundation from which to evaluate the present and make proper decisions for the future."  A Beka Book has been developed and refined over a period of 55 years in the classrooms of Pensacola Christian Academy.  For more information please go to www.abeka.com.

Our Toddlers use Play-n-Worship: Play-Along Bible Stories for Toddlers and Twos.
"Teach toddlers and twos in ways they learn best...by doing!  They'll discover important Bible truths when you mix everyday objects with stories and songs.  Your kids will quickly learn how to connect with God- and trust him- in their everyday lives.  Fun themes include" God give me food, God takes care of me, God is with me, God keeps me safe, God loves me, Jesus loves me, Jesus is born, Jesus is my friend, God made me, and I can help."
 
Our Twos use Hands-On Bible Curriculum for Toddlers and Twos.
"What if Jesus taught your kids?  How would he do it?  What tools would he use?  What would he want them to learn and remember?  The Bible gives us lots of examples of how Jesus did it 2,000 years ago.  He used everyday objects like coins, fish, and plants to help people remember the truths he shared with them.  Hands-On Bible Curriculum does the same thing.  We call them 'gizmos' and they serve the same purpose: to help kids understand the important Bible truths.  It worked for Jesus, and it still works today."  Our Hands-On Bible themes are God helps us, God sees us, God made the world, God made the animals, God made me, Jesus came as a baby, Jesus is our friend, and Jesus loves us.
