In the same way children learn such vital skills as communication, sharing and respect early on in their educational experiences, so too must we understand that children can and should be taught the Bible and how to pray, establishing an awareness of and love for God.
As you may know, Miracle Moments Child Development Center, located on the campus of the Paradise Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church, is in the preschool business, providing quality education to children ages 2-5 years-old at a reasonable price. Each of our credentialed teachers comes to work each day excited to do what they love: teach our young children.
Miracle Moments is more than a business, however. In addition to providing reliable child care to families with small children–which enables the parents to work or take classes during the day–our school exists in order to share the message of Jesus through a Christ-centered curriculum in a loving and supportive atmosphere.
While our two-year-olds, three-year-olds and pre-Kindergarteners all have slightly varying schedules, all students are given a hot breakfast every morning, followed by morning worship within each group. In a typical day, Ms. Martha could be teaching her two-year-olds a song about Noah’s ark while Ms. Mary could be retelling Jesus’ Parable of the Sower in a new and creative way to our pre-Kindergarteners.
We are so blessed with the success we have had in building this very important program over the last two years for our children. It also excites us knowing how much potential we have to grow and reach even more children with the help of our San Diego church family. If you have or if someone you know has children between the ages of two and five years old that could benefit from this ministry, we encourage you to stop by for a visit!
