Fulford Christian Academy provides a Christian education to infants through Kindergarten. We have free VPK and accept School Readiness and Step Up for students. After school care is available for school age children up to 5th grade, with homework assistance and tutoring during the school year and full day for out of school days including, but not limited to, winter, spring and summer breaks. We offer soccer, dance and music enrichments.
We offer emergent learning through the Creative Curriculum. The Creative Curriculum balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths and interests.
The Creative Curriculum for Preschool translates new research and theory from the field of early childhood education into a practical, easy-to-understand approach to working with children and their families. It is a comprehensive curriculum with a clear organizational structure and a particular focus on interest areas.
Child development theory and scientific research are the foundation of The Creative Curriculum for Preschool. They inform decision making, influence our view of children, and are the basis for all the recommendations we’ve included.
- Abraham Maslow–Basic needs and learning Erik Erikson–The emotions and learning
- Jean Piaget–Logical thinking and reasoning Lev Vygotsky–Social interaction and learning
- Howard Gardner–Multiple intelligences Sara Smilansky–Play and learning
Our curricula include activities such as cooking in the classroom, painting, computer technology and other meaningful experiences for children. Our faith-based curriculum includes prayer daily and Children’s Chapel with a Bible Study and Praise Time on Wednesdays.
