FOUNDATIONS CHRISTIAN PRESCHOOL
LEARNING IS FUN
Our center is based on the care and education of children today, so they can have a brighter tomorrow. Our desire was to carry this passion into our curriculum as well. In 2013 we began developing our own curriculum based on this principle.
Foundations curriculum is based on the theory that children learn best in an environment that is warm, attractive, inviting, and centered around the child. Our student centered learning approach puts the child at the core of what they learn, how they learn, and what they can connect to future learning.
Research shows that children learn best through play, so we have structured our learning environment to facilitate this style of learning. We provide freedom within boundaries, engaging activities though out the classroom, and early childhood educators that facilitate but do not dictate children’s learning.
Foundations curriculum is based on the five developmental domains which include:
• Physical Development and Motor Skills
• Social and Emotional Development
• Approaches to Learning and Play
• Communication, Language and Literacy
• Cognitive Development
Many of our activities are based on the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS) and are incorporated on a daily basis. We set high expectations, as we know that children are more successful in this type of learning environment. Our goal is to provide positive learning experiences that motivate our students to learn today, tomorrow, and into their future.
There is also lots of time for fun. We have a large wrap around playground that is enclosed and private. The children go outside 2 times a day for recess.
WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT US
I just want to say that We LOVE FOUNDATIONS!!!!!!!! They are a daycare that provides love,
nourishment, and development. They are constantly growing and improving!!!!!! They
welcome parents opinions and recommendations and make you feel like you are part of the
team. I appreciate their honesty and wonderful smiles and great attitude everyday.
I want to express my gratitude for an awesome day care for Terry, my grandson! Foundations is exactly what you are providing, for not only Terry, but other children in the community. You are providing a Christian foundation for our children ho will be the future leaders of tomorrow in our community. Our children will be Christian leaders locally, and possibly nationally founded upon Christian principles derived from Foundations Christian Preschool. Foundations Preschool is developing our children to become productive citizens with high moral values. I am amazed at the transformation that Foundation has made within this past year and feel that Foundations is what our community needs more of. Foundations is the leader in best practices to set an example for other day care institutions to follow. When I enter, I am greeted with a smile and a good morning no matter what the situation may be in staff’s personal lives. They do not show it. The staff seem to really enjoy what they do! On a more personal note, Foundations has provided safety for my grandson Terry. He has severe food allergies and asthma. I would highly recommend any parent of a child with food allergies ( or any disability or challenge) in our community to take their child to Foundations Thank you again Foundations, for providing Terry with safe care as well as Christian values!
My name is Josh and I am the father of a 2 year old little girl that attends Foundations Christian Preschool. We have been so very happy and blessed to have found such a great center with firm Christian values. My baby comes home singing, counting, and praying so well. All the employees and staff make us feel like family. Foundations is a perfect combination of care and education! Our family would recommend them to anyone.
Amazing! My son is blossoming here after a rough couple of other daycares. The care these teachers have for their kids is amazing. The director and assistant director know who you are and they know what is going on with your child. Could not have found a more perfect place.
My child has been at Foundations since she was 6 weeks old! We have loved every teacher she had growing up, and the care and patience they have with them is unbelievable.I love that my child is also able to be taught about the Lord and the many stories of the Bible, it just brings a smile to my face when she would come home and tell me about a new Bible Story!! Communication has always been very important to me and I love how I am always aware of how my child’s day has been. The director is very welcoming and approachable and seems to get to know each and every child, which I love!!! Not only was this a place where I knew my child was loved and cared for, but she was taught sooooo much and this has helped her excel in school! She is now 7 years old and still attends their after school program!
WHAT WE DO
Foundations was started in 2000 by Kristi DeArman. With a deep passion for children, and wanted to provide an environment where children could grow and develop into their full potential.
The DeArman’s wanted their child care center to be different from those around them. They first made sure their business was grounded in Christian principles. God’s love, forgiveness, and mercy are at the core of every aspect of Foundations Christian Preschool. In addition, the students and families served are more than just customers, they are truly family. Partnership is a word that is highly used in this facility, as families, staff, and administration work together to provide the best care and education for the children served.
Foundations Christian Preschool realizes that is a privilege to care for the children in this community, and strive to continue to be recognized as one of the premier facilities in the area.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6
Foundations Christian Preschool is open Monday through Friday from 6am to 6pm.
We serve ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
