Early Childhood Program

 

Welcome to Divine Savior Academy’s Early Childhood Program!

It is an absolute joy for us to serve the young children of our community and to provide them with the best early education possible. We are committed to partnering with parents in the process of building a strong foundation for each child's future success. In the preschool, kindergarten, and first grade classrooms, you will find caring teachers who create positive, loving, and Christian learning environments. Our early childhood program is based on the philosophy that children are most successful when they encounter learning experiences that are active, hands-on, and developmentally appropriate. There is also a focus on fostering young children's development in each area: emotional, social, physical, cognitive, and spiritual.

We look forward to partnering with you as we guide your child through this essential stage in life! It is a blessing to watch the growth and development of our young children every day.

 

 

 

 

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.
