Latest News

2022 and we are still dealing with COVID. BUT GOD has blessed us with a full child development center. Each class is at its capacity.

Our teachers are soaring with our ABEKA Curriculum; teaching and learning, cross-subject integration, spiral review, and plenty of hands-on activities. The ABEKA program helps us successfully prepare our children for a lifetime of learning.

Along with ABEKA we provide experiences in other subject matters. Our children engage in music, art, physical education, story time, fine and gross motor skills, science and social studies.

Since January, we have completed a study of Dr. Martin Luther King and completed a month unit on Black History. Our children need to know their history. Black History Month was created to focus attention on the contributions of African Americans to the United States. It honors all Black people from all periods of U.S. history, from the enslaved people first brought over from Africa in the early 17th century to African Americans living in the United States today.

Spring Break was an amazing success. 22 children experienced an amazing adventure of education, fun, food and physical activities. We are looking forward to Summer Break Camp. Registration for SBC starts May 2, 2022. The Summer Break Camp begins June 6, 2022.

Delicious Meals

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.
