The ABEKA Curriculum is a high quality program that prepares children for success in social development, reading, math, science, music, art, small and large muscle development and practical life skills. In addition, beginning Fall 2016 we are excited to offer the GELDS Georgia Early Learning Development and Standards. They are a set of appropriate, attainable standards that are flexible enough to support children’s individual rates of development, approaches to learning, and cultural context. The GELDS are a continuum of skills, behaviors, and concepts that children develop throughout this time of life. They are divided into age groups and serve as a framework for learning.
We have several field trips throughout the year. Field trips are beneficial to students because they allow students to see how what they are learning is applied in the real world. Field trips also give students an opportunity to learn outside of the classroom, they provide unique opportunities for learning that are not available within the four walls of a classroom.
