Here at Temple, we are firm believers that the best way for children to learn is through play. Children are given opportunities throughout the day to engage their bodies & minds and to discover using their unique imagination and creativity.
Children are given the opportunity to play outside twice a day for a total of an hour and a half. If it is too hot, too cold or too wet, the children will be able to enjoy the schools gymnasium. Children are required to wear closed-toe shoes, which are optimal for play.
Each child will bring a lunch box packed with breakfast, lunch and snack. Please note that we are a nut free facility. We encourage all parents to provide healthy options for their child. Before each meal, children will bless their food using fun and engaging songs.
Each child is given the opportunity to rest each and every day. During this time children can nap or do a quiet activity on their mat. Children can bring a small blanket and stuffed animal to lay down with.
Mr. and Mrs. Beaver will delight the children with music and movement every Wednesday. Each child will learn combinations of Sunday school and preschool songs all while playing instruments and moving their bodies.
Mr. Allen, who is a member of TBC, volunteers on Monday's to read stories with the children. His story sessions would not be complete if he didn't read "The Napping House" by Audrey Wood. We encourage all of our parents to volunteer and read stories during circle time!
On Tuesdays Dr. Mike, who is the pastor at TBC, will engage the children with stories all while introducing them to God. The children will learn that they were made special in the image of God and that their differences make them unique.
We conduct monthly fire drills as well as quarterly shelter-in-place and lock down drills. Conducting these drills will help the children and staff members know what to do in the case of an actual emergency.
