Creating an educational experience that recognizes and values the unique abilities of each student and provides an environment that maximizes their growth is at the heart of the KTP program. Individual and small-group activities are scheduled daily. Communication, self-expression, creativity and growth of a positive self-image are fostered by providing a well-rounded, age-appropriate learning environment for each child. KTP staff is comprised of trained and qualified teachers and assistant teachers who have knowledge and experience in the field of early childhood education. Teachers offer a stimulating and encouraging learning environment where each child can experience success.
Our goal is for students to experience the gospel and grow in their knowledge of Jesus. We strive to model and communicate the three purposes of Overlake Church—LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, SERVE THE WORLD. Our teachers openly share with students about their own faith and love for Jesus in both formal and informal teaching times. An all-school chapel with worship, bible lessons and prayer is incorporated into weekly class schedules.
Our curriculum is a blend of teacher-directed and individual learning experiences, incorporated with a multi-sensory hands-on approach. Children learn by using their five senses to explore the world around them while developing an increased ability to think, reason, question and experiment. Our teachers are facilitators of learning, using a curriculum that is developmentally age-appropriate.
We believe each child is uniquely created by God and recognize that a child’s development is an individual process. Our goal is development of the whole child, socially, physically, intellectually and spiritually. We provide a quality early childhood education, loving care, and enriching experiences in a warm, Christ-centered environment.
Developmentally appropriate goals are established for each age group. Teachers report on student progress once in the fall and again at year's end. These assessments do more than simply diagnose and identify students’ learning needs; they are used to assist improvements in the classroom instruction and curriculum planning.
The intent is to communicate broad goals for your child in the categories of Language Arts, Math, Motor Skills, Music, Art, Spiritual and Social-Emotional Development. Within each sub-group, it is noted what they have mastered and what they continue to work on. Age specific Progress Report samples are available by request.
