Dayspring提供3天(星期一/三/五) & 为期5天的学前班(全日制,4岁) & 5).
At Dayspring, 我们认为每个孩子都是独一无二的个体, created by a loving Creator, and valued as such. 正是因为如此,Dayspring创建了P139学生支持计划, named for Psalm 139:14, and designed to teach students at all levels who require alternative or differentiated methods of instruction, so they may work to their potential.
Dayspring提供学前班到五年级的课后课程. The program starts at 3 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m. 我们不能在节假日、下雪天和提前下课的时候提供课程.
Dayspring offers several field studies in order to fully delve into curriculum topics. Some Pre-K locations include, 在啾啾谷仓学习科学和旅行/交通, 去俄勒冈奶牛场了解农场的春天, 以及兰开斯特科学工厂,亲身体验科学探索.
The Bible clearly teaches that the responsibility of education belongs to parents, not the State. 箴言说:“敬畏耶和华是智慧的开端。.只有教导我们的孩子神的话语中的真理, will we ensure that they can adequately meet the challenges of a secular world and affect that world dynamically for the cause of Christ.
Will my child use the same textbook as government schools or other Christian schools?
学生们确实使用教科书学习技能导向的课程, by and large, though, textbooks are used as resource tools. Students and teachers alike develop highly specialized notebooks that become the primary teaching-learning tools. This enhances the internalization of the material to be learned and creates a sense of ownership which increases long-term retention and application.

我的孩子是否有一个过渡期? 父母如何处理分离焦虑?
Some children may experience separation anxiety during their first days of school. We understand that most children need time to realize they are safe here at school. We show them they are safe by holding the little ones or sitting next to them as they get to know and feel more comfortable with their peers. We allow parents to walk children to class daily or as often as the parents want to do so. We use encouraging words as we help them to learn and remind them their parents will be back to get them at the end of the day. 通常情况下,我们会看到分离焦虑在几天内消失. 所有的老师都很擅长让孩子们在学校感到被爱和安全.
我们的Dayspring学前班有一名助手协助老师. Teacher to student ratio is 9:1.
Appropriate security measures are in place to ensure that our families feel confident that their precious children are safe, loved, and well-cared for. 学前班教室的设计考虑到了孩子们的健康和安全.
