Roughly 30 years ago Willmar AG church had a vision to help parents set their children on the path toward the knowledge and grace of God by combining academic and Christian education in a program built for young learners. After a brief reprieve, Children's Corner re-opened in 2017, staying true to our roots and using best practices to influence the growth of our preschool students.
In the past several years since re-opening we have grown our enrollment and are now have room for up to 80 students from the ages of 3-5. We know this growth is due to God's plan alone and pray that His plan for us continues to serve the families of our community. We are honored to have the chance to help children grow in His grace and look forward to continued partnerships with families of young learners.
At Children's Corner Early Learning Center, we make it a priority to provide a well-rounded secular and religious education infused with Christian values and beliefs. We provide the advantage of learning in a diverse and nurturing community, where the process of teaching is tailored to each student.
Students at our school develop a rich spiritual identity, and move on to become self-confident and driven children with an eternal thirst for knowledge and understanding of the world they inhabit. We understand the importance of educating not just the mind, but the soul of each student. We are humbled you are interested in our program and only want what is best for each child and family we have the honor of serving. Please let us know if there is ever anything we can do to help you and your family!
Our curriculum seeks to provide students with:
the opportunity to flourish into well-rounded adults.
create learning opportunities for lasting influences.
embrace students' individual skills
encourage growth that is challenging yet attainable.
We do this by providing hands on learning and play, to make learning fun, in order to help our students retain skills and knowledge.
We use the Creative Curriculum which allows us to customize our lessons for each student. It encourages realtionships between students, teachers and families and guides our teaching using play and child development as the base for education.
Our assessment is the Desired Results Development Profile which tracks child development and is closely aligned with the Early Childhood Indicators of Progress.
Our assessment helps us to guide our planning, making sure we are providing ample opportunities for our students to learn and grow their skills.
