The ATLANTA FIRST DAY SCHOOL is born out of a desire to support the Church’s mission of ministering to the needs of our community. We will provide a family friendly, high quality, safe environment in the city that serves as a loving extension of the family as it meets the physical, emotional, spiritual and educational needs of our children.

Vision: To help children develop their social, physical, emotional and spiritual selves in a Christian atmosphere. Students enhance their experiences through art, music, and classroom activities. Research and experience confirm that a positive learning environment facilitates the development of each child according to his/her particular needs, interests and unique abilities.

Curriculum: ATLANTA FIRST DAY SCHOOL will be focusing on teaching the whole child through the CREATIVE CURRICULUM model recognized in national and state standards. The learning environment through the structure of the classroom makes it possible for teachers to teach and children to learn. This includes how teachers set up and maintain interest areas in the classroom, establish schedules and routines, organize choice times and small-and-large-group times, and create a classroom community where children learn how to get along with others and solve problems peacefully. The body of knowledge includes literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology-and the process skills children use to learn that content. We show how children learn content and skills through daily experience.
