Curriculum

At Christ Church Parish Day School individual expression and personal accomplishment are encouraged through a cheerful and supportive environment. Creativity, risk taking, and the ability to make considered choices are encouraged. Through a thematic approach, our program introduces and integrates mathematical concepts, scientific concepts and language arts. Outdoor play is an important part of each day. Our curriculum is enriched with weekly music and creative movement classes. The children are exposed to a variety of music, participate in vocal exploration and singing, learn how to “catch the beat”, play simple musical instruments, move and dance to music, as well as create their own melodies and songs.

Christ Church Parish Day School has adopted the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching. This approach emphasizes social, emotional, and academic growth in a strong and safe school. It promotes an optimal learning environment and fosters an atmosphere of mutual respect between children and adults. In this way, each child develops ownership of his/her school environment.

Our carefully planned program affords a flexible and intellectually stimulating classroom where children can choose from a wide variety of activities and progress at their own pace.

The entire school joins together once a week for a service of prayers, stories, and songs conducted by a minister of Christ Church.

Families are encouraged to become involved and participate in our school community. Occasions such as the Christmas service, Silent Auction, Family Day, and classroom visits are just a few examples of the many opportunities for parental involvement.
