MDS has provided high-quality experiences for over three decades. Our licensed program is designed to provide a Christian atmosphere for the cognitive, physical, social-emotional, and spiritual development of children. Children of all races, nationalities, and religious backgrounds are welcome. MDS is known for our developmental, hands-on philosophy; low child-staff ratios; and excellent teachers.
Emphasis is placed on developing each child’s self-esteem and the fulfillment of their highest God-given potential. All staff is experienced in working with young children and receive yearly training focused on Early Childhood Development. MDS values the needs of each child and family to provide opportunities for growth in all areas (spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual, and social).
During the school year, many events and activities are planned for the children and their families. Some exciting events include: Pumpkin Patch, Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas Celebrations, Pajama Day, Easter Egg Hunts, Police and Firemen Visits, Splash Day, and many more!
We all love to learn! Cognitive development in our classrooms is very intentional. We understand children learn best through hands-on opportunities to explore and discover. Our teachers create play-based lessons to meet the needs and interests of each child.
We all love to move! The first five years of a child’s life are marked by significant physical growth. At MDS, we focus on both gross motor (large muscles) and fine motor (small muscles). Gross motor skills are big movements! We climb, stretch, and move on our age-appropriate playgrounds each day – weather permitting. Children attend Music and Motor class daily as well. Our music teachers vary curriculum, but always focus on rhythm, coordination and muscle development by crawling, dancing, or other constant movement. Fine motor skills are developed and enhanced as children play with crayons, play-dough, and manipulatives throughout their day. Handwriting Without Tears curriculum is used for all age groups, using fun materials to help build muscle strength.
We love Jesus! We welcome families of all faiths. Our teachers plan Christian lessons in their classrooms daily, including prayer before snack and lunch. Our 3’s, Pre-K, and Kindergarten children attend Chapel each week to hear a Bible story, pray, sing, and learn about worship. Families are always invited to join us.
We love each other! Making friends is a new and important concept for little ones. Because we offer small child to teacher ratios, we’re able to provide opportunities to work and play with friends. The social skills we develop in preschool are the foundation for a lifetime of connections with others.
I feel proud of myself! God made us all unique. Helping children feel good about themselves is an essential part of our early education. Developing independence are necessary life skills; we strive to meet individual needs in ways that help each student shine. We want each child to develop a strong “I can do it!” attitude and love of learning!
