The WEE Center is a ministry of Parkwood Baptist Church in Annandale Virginia. We offer an exceptional, Christian pre-school program for children 15 months of age to 5 years old.
We use the WEE Learn Curriculum, published by LifeWay Christian Resources, and teacher planned activities to focus on the following areas:
* *Spirituality * *Social Skills * * Physical Skills * * Communication Skills * * Cognitive Skills
Personal Development including respect, self-esteem, and moral character
Independence and Self-control
The WEE Center staff provide a variety of developmentally appropriate activities for children entrusted in our care. The children's natural curiosity is stimulated by teacher-directed and child-initiated activities. The program includes both individual and group experiences that encompasses a variety of learning styles, and encourages creative exploration. Through hands-on activities and play we encourage a relationship with Christ and a love for learning. Each child is encouraged to learn at his or her own pace through a program of daily activities that include:
Learning Centers * * Creative Art * * Outdoor Exploration * * Classroom Discovery * * Literacy * *
Math * * Science * * Movement * * Music with a Music Specialist
In addition to a regular daily schedule filled with activity, special events help round-out our program. These special events include:
Each classroom is staffed with a lead teacher and an assistant teacher. The children to teacher ratios are at or lower than those required by the Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS). Each lead teacher is an active Christian with a college degree or a minimum of 5 years in early childhood education. All staff members receive extensive annual training in child development and education and are routinely certified in First Aid and Pediatric CPR. At least one staff member trained in Medication Administration is on site at all times.
