We believe as a tree begins as a small seed, so does a child. With the help of nurturing and care, the child begins to grow in all dimensions to explore and experience new opportunities. Our goal is that our students experience growth spiritually and academically.
Small Blessings is an extension of the ministry of First United Methodist Church of Bryant. Our program will provide a quality early childhood education through experiences that allow for children to begin their development socially, emotionally, physically, and mentally.
The learning experiences offered by Small Blessings are planned and evaluated in terms of specific goals for the development of each child. The educational aims of the school include:
To enrich the child’s social development by providing group stimulation and participation.
To enable the child to recognize the needs and feelings of others; to learn to get along with children and adults; to find acceptable ways of solving problems.
To develop a degree of self-confidence, responsibility, and independence reasonable for the age.
To develop habits of courtesy and thoughtful behavior.
To make and enjoy friends, to share responsibility for care of the room and equipment, and to find real joy in belonging to a group.
To develop an appreciation for home, school, church, and community, and to recognize God’s plan for us to live happily together in the world.
Our comprehensive curriculum includes exposure to:
Music and movement
Science and the natural world
Religious concepts (weekly Chapel)
Concepts that enhance:
Positive self image
Large and fine muscle development
