1. What questions should I ask when deciding on a childcare provider?
Ten Questions You Should Have Answers To In Order To Make Your Choice:

    • How much experience do the owners and operators have in business?
    • What experience do the teachers have?
    • What is the daily routine?
    • What is the parent involvement?
    • Is there time set aside for the parent and teachers to discuss the child?
    • How is discipline handled?
    • Does the school have an outdoor space and how often is it used?
    • Does the school take field trips?
    • What is the vacation and holiday schedule
    • What is the policy for taking care of sick or injured children?

Then ask yourself these four questions. Visit the preschool, rely on what you see.

      • Are the children safe, busy and happy?
      • Does the school have a lively, creative order to it?
      • Are the rooms decorated with teacher art or children’s art? (children’s art decorating the room is a sign that the teachers value what the children are creating)
      • Do the teachers seem to like what they are doing?

2. What does it mean to be a ‘Christian Academy’?
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
