WEE School Philosophy of Ministry
Our Weekday Early Education School is a program of care and education for preschoolers, 6 weeks of age until entrance into kindergarten. Carmel Baptist provides a Christian environment for preschoolers to learn and grow. The church sees the WEE School as part of its Preschool Ministries and uses it as a service and outreach to our community.
The program is designed to meet the needs of the total child. Our WEE School program will include activities that help the child grow emotionally, mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually.
Emotionally, a child will learn to adjust to a time away from Mom and develop a love and trust for his teachers. Helping a child to discover and explore the world around him will help him grow mentally. Basics, such as colors, shapes, numbers, and alphabet will be introduced in a way that makes learning fun.
Physically, the WEE School provides outside play, music with movement, and manipulative toys to help a child develop a healthy body as well as fine and gross motor skills. As preschoolers play and interact with one another they make friends and grow socially. Spiritually the child will hear Christian teachers share Bible thoughts, stories, songs, and prayers that help them learn of God, Jesus and the Bible.
Our desire is to grow well-rounded preschoolers that leave our program with a good self-image, happy, confident and eager to learn. That's what the preschool years are all about, as we lay foundations that a child will continue to build upon as they grow.
