Antioch Child Care Center is a Christian Child Care program established to address the spiritual as well as educational needs of children. Our purpose is to provide a ministry to the families and children of our community. We strive daily to maintain a wholesome environment with Christian leadership to help children grow and develop into mature Christians.
We believe that our staff is the strength of our program due to their faith in God and their strong commitment and dedication in the teaching of children. We believe in positive methods of discipline that redirect children's behavior. We establish consistent, age appropriate limits to help children to make wise choices and understand the feelings of others.
We strongly believe in God’s word when He says to “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6. Creating a foundation for loving God and putting Him first in everything we do, then teaching children to be lifelong learners is the heart of our child care program.
Above all, the staff and administration of the Antioch Child Care Centers have a passion and dedication for serving children and their families.
We are committed to providing the most comprehensive educational material available to young children today and that is why we are proud to offer the proven and nationally renowned Biblically based A Beka Curriculum. The A Beka Christian curriculum is a spiritually, academically, and socially based curriculum developed to meet the needs of Christian preschool programs.
Our two year old program offers language development and listening skills that include color words, shapes, animals, transportation, countries, community helpers, health, safety, manners and science. Mathematics focuses on simple counting 1-30, and number concepts 1-15. Bible Hymns, choruses, and memory verses are also a very important part of our daily schedule.
Our three year old program offers recognition of names, sounds, and pictures for short vowels and consonants as well as formation of vowels and consonants in upper and lower case. Other areas of learning focus include language development and listening skills, color words, shapes, animals, transportation, countries, beginning writing skills, community helpers, health, safety, manners, science, and social skills. Our three year olds are introduced to numbers 1-50 and basic number concepts 1-25, sequencing, patterns, and more. Lessons such as the Creation, Noah, Daniel, and Jesus as a child are a few of the wonderful Bible stories your child will learn each week. Morning devotions are held in the classrooms daily.
Along with the A Beka curriculum our Pre-K 4 program forces on phonics and reading readiness. In language arts, students work on their recognition of names, letter sounds, and picture of long and short vowels and constants, soundings of blend and one-and two vowel words, reading of sentences and short stories with one- and two vowels words. Mathematical and numerical concepts focus on number recognition, counting 1-100, and number concepts 1-20. Writing instruction focuses on the formation of letters, blends, and words. Language development and listening skills achieved include color words, shapes, animals, transportation, countries, community helpers, health, safety, manners, science, and social skills lessons. Bible lessons are read and studied daily.
