Our Curriculum:

The Gospel Project® for Kids Curriculum immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story and is designed to be developmentally appropriate for each age group we serve. Teachers use it as a framework on which they can build a program that allows children to grow and develop as Jesus did - in "wisdom and stature “and in "favor with God and man". (Luke 2:52).

Fingerprints incorporates Get Set for School curriculum by Handwriting without Tears and Wonders Reading by McGraw Hill to prepare our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten children for elementary school. These curriculums are specifically designed to focus on Language & Literacy, Readiness and Writing and Numbers and Math. Hooked on Phonics Learn to Read is utilized in our 3’s and 4’s classes. Our Pre – Kindergarten classes utilized Hooked on Phonics Word Families to help children build phonemic awareness, learn letter recognition, and understand the association of letters with their letter sounds. We are committed to meeting and exceeding the expectations of the Nebraska Early Childhood Guidelines.

Our Philosophy:

Fingerprints believe that children are uniquely created and gifted in diverse ways. Fingerprints also believe that children should be encouraged and guided as they seek to understand their world. To help them as they grow and explore, we strive to provide a safe, secure, Christian environment. At Fingerprints, children are encouraged to learn and develop spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.

Education in the early years should excite curiosity, stimulate creativity, expand intellectual thinking, build strong large/small motor skills, create awareness and help each child better understand themselves and the world around them. Fingerprints uses the Pinnacle Faith Based Christian Curriculum and The Gospel Project® for Kids Curriculum. We provide smaller classroom sizes for more individualized attention, developmentally appropriate materials and environments set up with active learning centers. We offer a strong focus on preparing your child for school readiness.

We work as a team with each family in the daily care of their children. We provide open and honest communication with parents each day, helping to reinforce the positive behaviors in each child.
