Learning Links - Grace Christian Community New Lynn
Christian Childcare Centres aren’t so different from your regular preschool or kindergarten.
When you see the word ‘Christian’ in Christian Preschool or Christian Kindergarten, it’s easy to assume that what’s being taught is very different.
The truth is, Christian Early Education Center practice your standard New Zealand curriculum alongside good Christian values.
That’s not all.
Christian Childhood Education Centre might be the right fit for your family, without you realising it.
Here are four important facts about Christian Early Learning Centres:
1- Christian Childcare Centers are almost identical to regular centres:
Despite curriculum content being aligned with Christian values, all Christian Daycare centres are held to regular teaching standards. Your local centre is accountable for children’s learning stories, learning outcomes, and effective teaching practices.
2- Christian Daycare Centres are usually attached to a charitable institution:
Your local Christian preschool may be attached to a church group or charitable institution. What does that mean for you as a parent?
Due to this community attachment, most Christian preschools will naturally have strong community relationships. In some cases, Christian kindergartens may even accept donations or offer subsidies for your child’s attendance. Each child care center will differ in its approach.
3- Christian Preschool teachers are qualified teachers:
Qualified teachers at Christian child care centres must have the same New Zealand approved training as teachers in standard child care centers. Rest assured, teachers are well vetted and well prepared for education what differs is the content that may be taught.
4- Christian Kindergartens and Preschools teach Christian values:
Okay, you probably knew this one. But you may not have known what ‘Christian values’ actually means.
Putting it simply, Christian education centres focus on their teaching around being kind, loving others, and treating people with respect. All early childhood centers strive to teach children values, the content is just aligned with the Christian faith in a Christian child care center.
