Philosophy Our goal at Mount Olivet Children's Center is to provide high quality child care and early education for infants as young as 6 weeks, through 5 years old. Our underlying belief are that children need to be loved, respected, and accepted. Trust is critical and trust is built in an environment where caregivers respond appropriately to our children through communication. We also believe that young children learn through their senses, by watching and touching. Therefore, we offer our students lots of age-appropriate hands on activities to allow them freedom of movements, which we believe is also a key element for their development. Our Curriculum The daily program for our little students includes both independent and collaborative activities. Children are encouraged to quietly explore and discover on their own, but we also believe that in today’s world, it’s critical for children to learn to work socialize and learn and work in a group. Our caregivers and teachers also cater to the needs of each child, and will provide an early learning environment to meet infants’ unique developmental needs. We create daily routines and develop both verbal and non-verbal communication skills in a personalized and nurturing environment. Daily activities include communication and vocabulary for language development, fine and large motor skills, and socialization (we practice manners and courtesy.) We help with potty-training and also involve children in the preparation of our meals and the care of their classroom so they develop practical life skills very early on.

Capitol Hill Learning Group

Capitol Hill Learning Group (CHLG) offers teacher-led classes beginning at 2.5 years and includes a teacher-led cooperative for primary aged students... that combines classroom based education with home based education. We're a cooperative program, and parents contribute by assisting in their child's classroom on a rotating basis and by volunteering in other capacities to help keep the school running smoothly. CHLG is faith-based in the Christian tradition, and while we are organized in such a way that there is freedom to talk about God, Jesus Christ and the Bible, we welcome families from other faiths as well as families who do not consider themselves religious. CHLG's preschool program provides curriculum for all areas of a child's growth- physical, emotional, spiritual, social, linguistic, aesthetic and cognitive. We focus on what is familiar to children and on creative play through which children learn social roles, cooperation and problem solving. Children learn through experimenting, observing, wondering, exploring and questioning. Our curriculum seeks to provide children with the skills that will both help them learn as well as develop a love for learning. We promote a child's inner drive and excitement about learning as they use and apply knowledge, process and skills. The Hybrid Academy at CHLG is a unique primary schooling opportunity that pairs classroom learning with home based education, allowing for a rigorous academic program that can be tailored to the individual child's strengths and needs. Our Hybrid model consists of small classes (10 children maximum) taught by professional teachers. Classes meet on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:00-1:00. Our teachers partner with parents in the education of the child by providing consults on an as needed basis and by regular written communication regarding assignments to be completed at home on non-class days (Mondays and Wednesdays).
