our curriculum is Faith-Filled, fun, play-based, & challenging!

Every day is an adventure! With our exciting hands-on activities, your child will develop a love for life-long learning!

An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge. -Proverbs 18:15 ESV

We Focus On The "Whole Child!"

At Empowered, we follow a “whole child” philosophy where we partner with you to improve your child’s Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Language, and Physical skills. 


Your child will learn to socialize, make friends, develop social and emotional skills, and be more than ready for kindergarten! In fact, kindergarten teachers LOVE our students so much because they're such great learners!

Developmentally Appropriate!
Our curriculum is based on the NAEYC guidelines and features a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated hands-on activities to accomplish these goals. 


We also incorporate Creative Curriculum and Handwriting Without Tears Curriculum. 

We Love Questions!

We aim to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners by actively exploring their environment.


In fact, one of the best ways we can teach is to ask THEM questions. "What are you creating?" "How does it work?" "Tell me about what you drew." etc.


We Partner With You!
We assess our students three times each year to discover what areas they're strong in, and what areas still need more work. 


We keep you in the loop on what we're working on, and we also let you know exactly how your child is doing during our two parent teacher conferences each year.

Process... Not Product!
We love to get messy, and the best time for that is at art time! We focus on the process, not the end product, and use a wide variety of art materials. 


Children learn SO MUCH MORE when they have the chance to explore and play without rules of what art "should" look like at the end.

Fun Themes!

Every few weeks, we dive deep into a new, exciting theme based on our upcoming field trips, the weather, holidays, or whatever the children are dying to learn more about. 


We change out our lessons and materials to reflect the new theme. Our themes are always changing, and you never know what exciting things we'll add next week!

At our preschool, Christ is the center of everything we do and so if you're excited to have prayer back in school and to hear your little one worship, God, through music and movement, this is the school for your kiddo! We use the FUNDAMENTALS Preschool Curriculum by Joy Anderson, an activity-based curriculum with developmentally appropriate activities that will prepare your child for kindergarten in as little as 1 hour each day! There's no need for you to supplement the curriculum at home! We also include fundamental Bible stories and activities that are sure to have your child excited, engaged, and inquisitive about who Jesus is, how much He loves them, and how to be Christ-like!

I HAVE ANSWERS!

If you think of a question I haven't answered yet, feel free to reach out to me at empoweredu@empoweredchristianacademy.com

FAQ

  • Do parents have to be present? No. You do, however, need to log your child into the online classroom at the start of each class, but then you can either stay or do other things you need to do.
  • Do parents have to print things off or help outside of preschool class? No. Our curriculum is designed to be hands-on (no worksheets) and self-contained within our 1-hour preschool class each day so you don't have to supplement additional curriculum during the day.
  • Do parents have to buy art materials? No. If needed, all materials will be mailed.
  • I miss the friends I had with my child's local preschool. Can I connect with preschool parents in my child's preschool class? Absolutely! After signing up, you'll join our private Facebook group of amazing preschool families. We're super supportive and excited to have you join us!

FAQ

  • Are there other costs besides my monthly tuition? There is a registration fee of $50. This fee holds your child's spot in the class, covers your Welcome Box, which includes materials and a special free gift for your kiddo. There are no other costs required to participate.
  • Is this an online "learning" video game or worksheet website? No. There is NO video game or worksheet component to our online preschool program... just real, social interaction between an amazing preschool teacher (that's ME!) and a small class of amazing preschool friends.
  • What's the difference between your online preschool and Hooked on Phonics or ABC Mouse? The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that preschoolers have no more than 1 hour of screen time. Would you prefer your child used that hour on high-intensity video games or on face-to-face social interactions to prepare your child in EVERY WAY to develop spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively, and linguistically? I believe preschool is a hands-on experience and playing video games to "learn" isn't how we do things at ECA!

FAQ

  • What if my child is shy, active, loud, silly, etc.? After 10 years of teaching preschool, I think I've seen just about every type of child there is. I'm excited to teach your child and help him or her have a wonderful experience!
  • What requirements do I need to participate? You'll need internet and a laptop or desktop computer. You can use an iPad or a phone but we don't recommend it because it's too hard to see everyone's faces and actually socialize with them.
  • I'm not technical. Will you show me how to log in? Yes. We've put together amazing video training that will walk you through how to log in. It's easy!
  • What platform is this using? We use Zoom, a free platform. The links we use to join our online classroom are exclusive to our preschool families so no one else can access the online classroom. Plus, our online classroom is monitored by a teacher (that's ME!) at all times when in use.
