Whether tailoring care to keep babies on the same schedules they're on at home, preparing kids for kindergarten, or assisting grammar-school students with homework in afterschool programs, First Christian Academy acts as a support system for other education and childcare efforts outside its walls. Because the academy views parents as crucial to their kids' education, parents can take part in the advisory board or take advantage of the open-door policy and stop by the classroom. There, they'll see kids aged 6 weeks to 12 years cared for by licensed professionals. These teachers do everything, including helping infants develop their senses, teaching older children to recognize coins and dollar bills, and what mortgage is most beneficial when putting a down payment on a blanket fort.
