We use two curricula at the center. Our infants and toddlers use Creative Curriculum and our preschool classes use The A Beka Book curriculum.
The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children's learning styles and building on their strengths and interests.
What is the Creative Curriculum?
It is an approach to teaching young children by being creative, by using spontaneity, and by utilizing the ability to see and use everyday opportunities to help children solve problems, explore new materials, and find answers to questions.
The Creative Curriculum focuses on interest areas. These interest areas, or "learning centers," are designed to support children's development.
We have created an environment to help promote functional play. Our classrooms are carefully designed with children in mind. The environment is interesting and challenging, filled with materials and objects that attract children and inspire their explorations.
The A Beka Book Curriculum
A Beka is a Christian Bible-based curriculum that was designed over 30 years ago to be used by Christian schools. Many home schoolers now use it at home for their children. Pensacola Christian Academy has been established for over 50 years, and the school was used to help develop the A Beka curriculum. The Bible is emphasized in every subject, which can help keep the children focused on what is really important in life. All A Beka publications are built upon the firm foundation of scriptural truth and are written by dedicated Christian scholars who are well-grounded in the practical aspects of classroom teaching.
