Soccer Shots offers two different programs to meet the developmental needs of children aged 2-MINI (Ages 2-3): The Mini program offers an introduction to soccer and movement, with an emphasis on balance, coordination and confidence. Repetition, high energy and celebrating achievements are key components of this program. CLASSIC (Ages 3-5): The focus of the Classic program is to individually become skilled at possessing the soccer ball. Through creativity, positivity, and fun, challenges and increased confidence are encouraged.

Excellent Programs

The Child Development Center at Progressive Union MBC serves Infants 6 weeks to 4-year-old. We have chosen the ABeka© curriculum for students ages two through 4. We believe ABEKA is a most outstanding and well-rounded program available. It is thorough, detailed and structured. It ensures that your child will be taught new material at each level, while reviewing previously taught material. This approach provides continuity and reinforcement in the learning process. Most importantly, ABeka allows our teachers to concentrate on what is most important – your child.

The curriculum starts at the age of two with language development and listening skills. This includes color words, shapes, animals, transportation, countries, community helpers, health, Bible Study, safety manners and science. Skills also include beginning math skills with simple counting 1-25 and number concepts 1-10.

In both the twos and threes age groups, arts and crafts are incorporated with projects focusing on colors, shapes, following directions, hand-eye coordination, and music lessons.

In the Pre-K 1 and 2 classes, ABEKA focuses on the recognition of name; sound and picture of long and short vowels; consonants; sounding out blends as well as one and two-vowel words. The Pre-K ABEKA curriculum also encourages reading short sentences and stories with one and two-vowel words. The Pre-K 2 class also works on handwriting skills, number skills with counting 1-100, and number concepts 1-20, and Bible Study continues. Arts and Crafts helps to develop motor skills with drawing, coloring, cutting and gluing. Our After School Program for school age children provides a mean for development through spiritual devotional time, help with homework, life skills, free play, and reading adventures.

We offer seasonal camps. Our Camp Programs are available during seasonal school breaks and the traditional summer days.

We also provide Fall Break Camp, Thanksgiving Break (Camp Progressive), Spring Break Camp, and Summer Camp. We believe childhood and camp are about experiencing new things for the first time. Each camp provides a unique adventure where campers discover new things, explore their surroundings and marvel in the wonder of childhood. Bible Study is a big part of this adventure. Campers also get to spread their wings, gain independence and become a leader.

We are a part of the community and you can count on us throughout the year.
