COLLEGE VIEW ACADEMY PRESCHOOL IS ACCEPTING STUDENTS SECOND SEMESTER....We have developed a program that fosters learning through a variety of methods. Our three year olds focus on social skills by learning to play, work, and communicate with other children. Children will learn through language experiences with books, letters, and pre-writing skills. Beginning math & number skills are developed through the use of manipulative materials. Our fours and fives work on letter and number recognition and pre-writing skills through activities designed to promote early literacy. The children in both age groups will explore the world around them with hands on activities in science and enjoy creative experiences with art & music. Group times and circle times include opportunities for singing, movement, stories, and sharing. We believe the key to all is the development of their faith life through Bible stories, songs, prayer. If you would like additional information about our program or a tour, please contact Shannon Chilson, Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402.483.1181 ext.49.

SPECIAL TAX DEDUCTIBLE GIFT IDEA...This Christmas give a gift that keeps on giving– consider sponsoring an Adventist child in India. Help prepare a child to spread the Gospel. Sponsors are needed to finance the education of Children in India. A great Mission opportunity for Sabbath School groups, families or individuals!! These children come from Adventist families who make less than $1. a day and who cannot afford a Christian education for their children. It costs only $420. per year ($35.month) to provide their tuition, lodging, food, books, clothing and medical for one year. Stop by the Ministry Gallery and pick up a take home info packet or contact Charlene (local “Goodwill Ambassador”) @402-489-1702. I have the pictures and info on several children presently needing sponsors.
