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. Pre-K2 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.

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. Pre-K4 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.
Key School
The Key-Wee through Kindergarten programs at Key School offer children aged two years, eight months and up a happy and enriching school experience in a secure and caring environment. With the highest priority placed on building self-confidence while developing the whole child, the program is implemented with the utmost attention to the needs, talents, and uniqueness of each individual. An integrated curriculum provides an introduction to a host of intellectual experiences that enhance each child’s understanding of, and appreciation for, the world. Key’s Pre-K 3 began their study of Germany on Monday with a very special video message from Herr Hannon, a friend of Pre-Kindergarten teacher Jackie Olson. Over the course of the next several weeks, the students will Skype with Herr Hannon ...as they learn more about Germany, its culture and traditions, and its language. The study will culminate with a traditional "Martinstag" celebration, honoring the kindness of St. Martin. All members of the class will perform classic German children's songs to commemorate the occasion. Pre-K 4 children are invited to embark on an After School Program journey that will build their global perspectives. Through interactive games, imaginary travel and cultural crafts, students enrolled in the Cultural Enrichment Activity will develop an understanding of the interconnectedness of our world community. Read More Key’s Kindergarteners are busily engaged with new interactive iPad applications that are reinforcing reading and math skills, while tapping into the students’ natural interest in, and facility with, technology. In September, Key technology integrator Nina Glime began introducing the students to the classroom iPads by providing them with opportunities to play with the available tools in several of the programs. Not surprisingly, the students displayed an extremely short learning curve and were eagerly working within minutes of picking up the devices—their creations were amazing! The students are now using a series of developmentally appropriate apps designed to support the work they are undertaking in the classroom.
