BELA VISION/ PHILOSOPHY
BridgePoint Early Learning Academy is an extension of the Children's Ministry  of BridgePoint Bible Church. The Academy provides a safe, nurturing and focused learning environment for children, intentionally laying a firm foundation in social, emotional, cognitive and spiritual development. Learning is driven by a recognition of each child's uniqueness, a Christ centered curriculum and by developing loving relationships with children and parents.

SCOPE OF PROGRAM: Age Range- 3 months- 4 years      

DIVISION OF CLASSES
Infants (3 months - 6 months)
Our large, bright room is filled with developmentally appropriate toys. The children enjoy music, Bible stories, and lots of opportunities to learn through play. The student/teacher ratio in the classroom is 6:2.

Crawlers (6 months - walking)
This room is also filled with developmentally appropriate toys. Similarly, children enjoy music, Bible stories, and lots of opportunities to learn and grow through play and developmentally appropriate activities. The student/teacher ratio in the classroom is 8:2.  

Toddlers (Walkers - 23 months)
Toddlers will learn through touch, sight, sound and experiences. A Bible story and a simple craft that reinforces the lesson will be a part of the learning experience. The children enjoy lots of playtime with age appropriate toys and teacher interaction that is educationally focused. The student/teacher ratio in the classroom is 8:2.

2 Year Olds
The 2 year olds will begin to learn in a more structured environment. The schedule for this class includes circle time, games, simple crafts, Bible stories, and story time all related to specific themes and teaching objectives. The activities reflect and encourage the older toddler's increased fine motor skills. Group participation and interaction are stressed in the story time, music, and playtime. The children enjoy a Thanksgiving Feast, holiday parties and birthday celebrations. The student/teacher ratio in these classes are 10:2.

3 Year Olds - Preschool Program
The curriculum for the 3 year old students centers around their eagerness to learn and their increased ability to listen and follow directions. Learning experiences are driven by objectives and become more detailed as the student's fine motor skills and cognitive abilities develop. The teachers begin to encourage responsibility with assigned helper jobs. Letters and numbers, rhymes and story time are a few of the many educational aspects to the child's day. Bible stories and memory verses are taught weekly. Monthly themes are planned with fun dress-up days, rodeo day, snow day, and a splash day at end of the school year. The student/teacher ratio in these classes are 12:1. Children must be potty trained to enter the class in September.

4 Year Olds - Pre-Kindergarten Program
The 4 year old class is intentionally designed to prepare children for Kindergarten. Learning experiences will be structured and specific to Kindergarten readiness skills. Children will learn phonics, number and letter recognition and application, and math concepts. Students will also be exposed to science through hands-on experiences. The Bible curriculum expands on the character of God, a Biblical timeline, prayer, and a special focus on Christmas and Easter. Memory verses and songs are reinforced daily. Monthly themes such as Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, rodeo and critters provide enrichment activities for the students. Responsibility in the classroom is taught by assigned jobs, individual centers and activities that require group participation. The student/teacher ratio in these classrooms is 12:1.
