Welcome

The mission of the Early Learning Academy at Bay Area Christian School is to extend the ministry of the church by providing a safe, Christ-centered and developmentally appropriate education for your child. As such, we invite you and your child to participate in our Christian training program for young children. We will be sharing Bible verses, stories, songs, and Bible truths with your child. Our teachers and staff will model Christian character in their classroom. All of our teachers are experienced in teaching young children. Throughout the year our staff participates in conferences and workshops specifically designed for teachers of preschoolers. Our staff brings years of education, training and experience to our program. Each class has an experienced preschool teacher and a classroom aide that assists with projects and center time.

We know the Lord loves little children, and so do we. It is our hope that during your time with us, you and your child will see the Lord in each of us as we minister to you and your family. We do not discriminate regarding race, color, or national origin. Bay Area Christian Early Learning Academy is a member of Texas Baptist Church Weekday Education Association.

Curriculum

Gospel Light Bible curriculum is utilized in all classes.  Children learn to recognize that the Bible is God’s word and that God loves and cares for them.  The Bible stories lead children to experience God’s love and know Jesus.  Preschoolers are forming their first impressions of God.  We believe that their first impression should be of a Heavenly Father that loves them, and of Jesus, their life-long Friend and Savior. 

P2

The P2 classes utilize the Frog Street (FS) curriculum for two’s.  FS is designed around the latest scientific early brain research while focusing on enhancing the simple joy of childhood.  Curiosity is encouraged and nurtured through exploration. 

K3

The K3 classes utilize the Frog Street (FS) curriculum.  FS curriculum for K3 integrates instruction across developmental domains and early learning disciplines.  Special attention is given to social-emotional development and provides many levels of support of differentiated instruction in: Language and Communication, Emergent Literacy Reading and Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Bible.

K4 / Bridge

The K4 and Bridge classes utilize Pearson’s Opening the World of Learning Curriculum (OWL).  OWL is designed to develop oral language and early literacy skills with research-based and field tested content, including science, social studies, and math.

OWL is a comprehensive curriculum that covers all domains of early learning.  The content of each unit is built around a carefully crafted daily routine within an activity-center day.  Themes, skills, and concepts are developed through children’s fiction and non-fiction books.

MUSIC CLASS

Music classes are held each day in the music room. Our music teacher shares her love of music with the children using a variety of fun activities. 

CHAPEL

Chapel is held each Tuesday morning. This is led by our teachers as they take turns telling the children a Bible story and lead them in prayer.
