Dale City Baptist Early Learning Program uses the WEE (Weekday Early Education) Learn Curriculum from the Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. The children learn to grow and develop as Jesus did – “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52). Each month a theme is presented, and lays a foundation for understanding God and how to live in the world He has created.
Concepts and Skills: The concepts and skills are based on 4 basic areas of development: spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social and emotional. These areas of development serve as a guideline since children develop at different levels.
Spiritual: Develops concepts about God, Jesus, the Bible, church, self, others, family and the world around them.
Intellectual: Develops listening and speaking skills, use of manipulative toys, clay, blocks, puzzles, painting etc. to develop small muscle control.
Physical: Develops large and small muscles, controls movement and balance skills, learns safety procedures.
Social/Emotional: Develops healthy concepts about self and others, learns to relate to others and becomes aware of his community around him and works in small and large groups, shows respect for others and their property.
The purpose of the Early Learning Program is to support the home and extend the ministry of the church by providing Bible-based, age-appropriate education for preschoolers.
The Early Learning Program will seek to provide opportunities for the children enrolled in the program to grow spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally and socially by providing developmentally appropriate activities, guidance, ministry, and outreach to them, and to the members of their families.
