About the room:
In the Alligator room we do a lot of learning, from our ABC’s, shapes and colors all the way up to being a good friend and having good manners. In our room we use weekly lesson plans that include science, language and art projects. The children also have time to independently learn through free choice play times.
Parent communication and involvement is huge and encouraged as you know your child best. We believe the relationship between parent and teacher is a team effort.

Favorite Bible Verse Job 12:7-10 “But ask the animals and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you, or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the name of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind”.
