Our Curriculum
We offer an enriched learning environment for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in which we have developed appropriate curriculum for ages six weeks to pre-kindergarten.
 
Creative Minds Academy uses the A Beka Curriculum founded by Dr. Horton, Beyond Cribs and Rattles and Beyond Centers and Circle Time . The A Beka Curriculum is built on a foundation of Academic Excellence within a Christian framework. We are a non-denominational Christian preschool that realizes the teaching materials reflect the very best in traditional education, while keeping learning "lively, interesting, and memorable."  We supplement this curriculum using our expansive knowledge base and enriched programs for the very best in education.  We institute Christian learning by having morning prayer, prayer before each meal and at circle time, teaching Bible Stories, and having chapel every Friday.  Chapel gives each child from the age of two years old and up the opportunity to learn about God and sing with their classmates in a less formal setting.  We use teaching methods such as flannel boards, puppets, and theatre performances. 

Our Staff
