KidsFirst Learning Center is a weekday program designed to enhance your child’s spiritual, mental, social, and physical development. The goal is to provide families with quality Christian childcare in a safe and fun learning environment for children (infant to five-years-old). The program is licensed by the Department of Children and Families through the state of Florida.
Preschool classrooms use the WEE Learn and Links to Literacy Curriculum in conjunction with other supplemental materials. The curriculum is developmentally solid, age-appropriate and Christ centered. Children participate in indoor and outdoor activities, alternate active and quiet play, along with snack and rest times. Classes explore Bible verses and stories, music, science, cooking, as well as introduction to letters and sounds, numbers, colors, and shapes.
