Curriculum:

Our Three Year Old, Pre-K, and Kindergarten classes use the A Beka curriculum. A Beka is a phonics-based curriculum. 

Classes use a thematic curriculum, which may include Friends, Family, School, Flowers, Holidays, Animals, Seasons, and Weather along with an emphasis on numbers and letters.  We have music and movement with the children every day and recess in the gym or outside on the playground.  There is a toddler playground and a larger playground for 3's and up.

A Christmas musical will be performed by the students.  Mini-programs are performed for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Easter.  The Pre-K and Kindergarten classes have a graduation program at the end of the school year.

Field Trips:  

The Three Year Old Class through Kindergarten go on multiple field trips throughout the year that may include Tate Farm Pumpkin Patch, Botanical Gardens and Christmas caroling.  The Kindergarten goes to the Bailey Cove library once a month.  Kindergarten goes on additional field trips as related to their unit of study, including multi-cultural restaurants in February.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

I felt strangely at home right away. Felt peace, love, acceptance and grace. . . They smiled at me, said hi, welcomed me: all with a great sense of sincerity.

I saw a new approach to worship and I felt God like I hadn’t for a while. It didn’t take me more than a few Sundays for me to feel at home.

I felt like it gave me the best opportunity to bring a non-believer or wayward believer with a different background or religious upbringing and them feel at home and interested in reconnecting with God or maybe connecting for the first time.
