Daycare and Preschool

Kids Love it Here!

Greenleaf Friends Academy’s Day Care and Preschool is a faith-based Learning Center. We love to help and serve our community.

We come alongside families with young children to provide quality care while parents are working. We also provide an excellent preschool program every day. Please explore our site, and contact us today if interested in a campus tour!

We are committed to providing our students with a child-centered, faith-based, and academically driven program in a nurturing, playful environment.

We believe children learn best during play.  Our learning environment is very child-friendly with many manipulatives, colorful images, objects to explore, and many different things to do and make.  Our program offers a wide variety of activities: group lessons, stories, self-guided play, music and movement, arts enrichment, crafts, and cooking.  Our goal is to help guide the child into the world with a sense of respect for self, others, God and to also develop a life-long love of learning.

Nursery: 0 – 18 Months

Part-Time or Full-Time

This group is nurtured and cared for by our teachers that try and follow schedules set by baby and parent. The nursery has many age-appropriate furniture and toys. The nursery also has ample room for babies to have “tummy time” as they learn to roll over, crawl, and walk.

The Caterpillars: 18 Months – 3 Year Old Class

Part Time or Full Time
This class will focus on socialization, beginning language art skills, and beginning math concepts. Learning to share and interact with others is foundational to a child’s development and future success. Cooperation, personal boundaries, and conflict resolution are key skills to teach at this age. Letter, shape, number, and color recognition are also taught using a variety of teaching methods and styles

The Butterflies: 3 – 5 Year Old Class (Pre-K)

Part Time and Full Time

These classes will emphasize phonemic awareness, pre-spelling, handwriting, and number value concepts.  Recognizing and matching a sound with a letter is a key step in learning to read so the class focuses on phonics daily.  Matching a quantity with a number is a basic math skill worked on which then advances into simple addition, patterning, and sequencing.  Handwriting is also a concept highlighted each week in class and then also encouraged to be continued at home with the child’s parents.  We also continue to guide the children through conflict resolution and acceptable social interactions to help ease them into the school years ahead.

ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS

Before and After School Care: 6-12 Years of Age

Part-Time – Full Days for School Days, based on space availability.

School-age children will have a snack, time to play, and then time for them to do homework.

Summer Program

Part-Time and Full Time

We are open year-round and offer fun Preschool themes throughout the summer with a lot of water play incorporated.

Bible and Character Education

Non-Denominational Christian

Each day we will teach Bible Stories. Bible education is taught to instill proper moral behavior, ultimately developing a sense of community and moral responsibility within each child.
