Early Childhood Ministry

Serving ages 2 - 5 year olds, the ECM at ASLS is an opportunity for our youngest students to grow in their love of learning through a caring, creative, nurturing environment. 

Children are natural explorers. The 2-3 year old students enrolled in Little Learners benefit from guided play that allows social and developmental growth which leads to a positive foundation for structured learning later in school. Children do not need to be potty trained. The teacher/student ratio is 1:5.

Preschoolers at ASLS are active learners! Their motor and social skills are abundant and growing. The 3-4 year olds in this class continue to learn about the world through play and interacting with classmates. Math, science, language, and literacy are introduced through basic concepts such as shapes, letters, and reading! The teacher/student ratio is 1:7.

Pre-Kindergarten prepares 4-5 year olds for the next step. Through emotional, social, spiritual, and academic growth, students gain self-confidence and continue their journey to be life-long learners. Concepts learned in preschool are built upon through exploration, small groups, reading, and social interaction. Children are allowed to work at their own pace and level, always challenging them to reach their highest potential. The teacher/student ratio is 1:9.
