Our Program:

These years shape your child’s educational path and lay the foundation for the rest of their lives. Why not start them on a road that parallels what they are learning at home and at church? Eden Christian Academy’s early childhood program offers the strong academic start your student needs in the fun, loving, Christian environment they deserve. Our teachers and staff are committed to providing a learning culture where biblical truths are integrated into every aspect of learning, development, discipline, and relationships.

Eden’s early childhood program is not a stand-alone pre-school. Our students get the advantage of having classes in our gym, art room and music room with teachers certified in these areas. Because it is integrated with our comprehensive curriculum (Pre-K through 12th grade), Eden’s early childhood students benefit from an accredited educational program and are better prepared for elementary school.

Our Teachers:

Ask Eden parents to describe our teachers, and they will use words like loving, energetic, nurturing, creative, caring and outstanding. In addition to being well-qualified in their field, Eden’s early childhood teachers go above and beyond to make learning fun and show each child that they are loved.

Curriculum:

Eden Christian Academy's early childhood curriculum addresses each area of development according to our mission statement - spiritually, academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.  Students are taught using a developmental approach in self-contained classrooms.  A solid Biblical perspective will reinforce the application of scriptural principles.
