Early Childhood Program


Welcome to Divine Savior Academy’s Early Childhood Program!

At Divine Savior, we’re committed to partnering with families to meet the needs of young children in our community. Our caring teachers establish safe, loving, Christian learning environments and plan hands-on learning experiences that lay the foundation for future school success. Our early childhood programs are based on the philosophy that children learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process and given opportunities to practice independence, cooperation, and problem solving. Throughout our school day, we focus on helping children grow in all areas of development – emotional, social, cognitive, physical, and spiritual.

It's a privilege to work with young children, and as a staff, we want each child to learn more about their Savior, themselves, and their world. The knowledge and skills children learn in these early years will serve them well in future classroom and life experiences. We look forward to partnering with you to meet the needs of your growing child!





The early childhood program at DSA is founded on research-based, developmentally-appropriate practices. This means that all aspects of our program are age-appropriate, culturally-appropriate, and individually- appropriate.


We are all unique.

In order for optimal growth to take place, children must engage in learning experiences that match who they are as individuals as well as their current state of development. Each child is unique and is guided through the educational journey in a way that meets his or her personal needs. Instruction is tailored to support each child as they climb the ladder of development.



We participate in our learning.

During the early childhood years, children learn best when they are allowed to observe, explore, and experiment with their environment. Teachers intentionally plan learning experiences that allow children to actively participate, using multiple senses whenever possible. We provide the materials, environment, and support that children need in order to continue their developmental growth. These active learning experiences help children to form the foundation of their science, math, and literacy.



We learn through play.

Our philosophy of early childhood education aligns with the vast research which states that children's play is critical to their development. Children's play scenarios provide the vehicle through which children implement, practice, and extend their learning. Teachers intentionally create a play-based learning routine that encourages children's interactions with one another and fosters critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.




Divine Savior is a community of families, students, educators, and friends. Our students learn and grow with the support of caring teachers, dedicated professionals, and involved families.






Supportive Teachers

At Divine Savior, our teachers tailor their instruction to challenge each student, not a class average, by encouraging, engaging, and motivating students to use their unique abilities and talents. Our faculty also focuses on educating the whole child: spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and academically.





Involved Families

We love to have our parents and caregivers involved at school. We join together to celebrate our students' successes, watch them compete, and cheer them on as they perform. Families get involved by chaperoning field trips, volunteering with our Parent Teacher Organization, or helping us support our communities through the service opportunities we offer on campus.
