Welcome

ELA Summer Camp

The mission of the Early Learning Academy at Bay Area Christian School is to extend the ministry of the church by providing a safe, Christ-centered and developmentally appropriate education for your child. As such, we invite you and your child to participate in our Christian training program for young children. We will be sharing Bible verses, stories, songs, and Bible truths with your child. Our teachers and staff will model Christian character in their classroom. All of our teachers are experienced in teaching young children. Throughout the year our staff participates in conferences and workshops specifically designed for teachers of preschoolers. Our staff brings years of education, training and experience to our program. Each class has an experienced preschool teacher and a classroom aide that assists with projects and center time.

We know the Lord loves little children, and so do we. It is our hope that during your time with us, you and your child will see the Lord in each of us as we minister to you and your family. We do not discriminate regarding race, color, or national origin. Bay Area Christian Early Learning Academy is a member of Texas Baptist Church Weekday Education Association.

Curriculum

We provide early education for two-, three-, four-, and five-year-olds in a nurturing and safe environment. We share Bible verses, stories, songs, and Biblical truths with your child. Our teachers model Christian character in their classroom. The foundation of our K3, K4, Bridge curriculum is the Wee Learn Program which provides a range of activities designed to meet the needs of preschool children at their level of development along the growth continuum. This is supplemented with some of the A Beka curriculum materials. This material is used to reinforce readiness skills and academics.

Our P2 classes implement the Frog Street Toddler curriculum.  This program features brain development research as the framework for instruction.  Daily routines provide key social and emotional skill.  This well-rounded curriculum provides comprehensive, integrated, and thematic activities every day.
