Our Philosophy

Palm Beach Christian Academy shares a common philosophy based upon an understanding of the needs of children. Children learn best through exploration, play and discovery. As children pass through stages of development which occur in a predictable sequence, we believe it is our responsibility to recognize these stages and to plan experiences that will nurture and facilitate maximum growth. At our private Christian childcare in Jupiter Farms, we provide experiences that are designed to meet the needs of the total child, to promote intellectual social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth.

Our Environment

Our Programs

Two-year Olds

The Two-year-olds who attend our private Christian childcare in Jupiter Farms are constantly in motion and use their natural curiosity for hands-on discovery. Two’s need a rich learning environment that develops their cognitive skills and expands their vocabulary, by this stage in their development, routines, and schedules become a big part of the child’s day which promotes stability and security.

Potty training is a familiar theme with parents of a 2-year-old. With this in mind, the PBCA staff will partner with the parents to help reinforce efforts being taken at home to potty train their child. Keeping in mind that one of the criteria to enter the 3-year-old program is to be 100% potty-trained.

The Creative Curriculum serves as the framework for conducting the PBCA 2-year-old program. Learning Environment Centers are introduced in the 2-year-old classroom and include: Bible time, circle time, dramatic play, art center, blocks, fine motor skills, music, and book/literacy area. Every child will participate in activities that are socially, physically, intellectually and psychologically age appropriate. Children learn by doing and through exploration and play. Our skilled teachers are adept at turning play time into learning activities. New items are periodically introduced to facilitate a better understanding of the classroom’s weekly focus.

Three-year Olds

Three-year-olds with the “Let Me Do It!” attitude need integrated, hands-on learning experiences. At PBCA, our private childcare in Jupiter Farms is focused on experimentation and exploration which build higher-level thinking, language, math, social and motor skills. The 3K teachers offer activities to creatively stimulate minds to the highest level possible by partnering with parents to provide a strong spiritual foundation in a loving, nurturing Christ-centered environment.

Our 3-K Preschool Program operates on a set schedule with instructional time beginning at 9:00 AM. Days are busy with circle time, centers, show-n-tell, Spanish & Music classes, etc. all before rest time which begins at 12:45. Supplemental planned activities, that are appropriate for this age, continue throughout the entire day at our private preschool in Jupiter Farms.

Learning environments such as Reading/Listening Corner, Science Centers, Dramatic/Home Center, Block, Sand Play, Small Manipulatives, and most children’s favorite, Art Area. New Items are periodically introduced to further their understanding of the coordinated weekly/ monthly theme.

Prekindergarten (VPK)

Pre-Kindergarten children need to investigate new interests and experiences. Through our VPK program in Jupiter Farms, our Pre-K’ers build a foundation for lifelong learning through play, exploration, trial, and error. They gain independence and self-confidence with their growing abilities while achieving readiness skills needed for kindergarten.

The Palm Beach Christian Academy takes pride in offering one of the best VPK programs in Palm Beach County.  Our student/teacher ratio within the classroom is 10:1. Our goal here at the PBCA is to partner with parents to provide a strong spiritual foundation to preschoolers in a loving, nurturing, Christ-centered environment of discovery and learning.

Pre-K instructional time begins at 9:00 AM. Phonics, reading readiness, math, and language etc. are vital elements of the day’s agenda. Our skilled teachers outline key activities to maximize areas of interests in order to enhance the learning capabilities of each child.  One of the objectives is to fine-tune skills needed to adapt to the Kindergarten setting. Some of which are: self-control, listening, following instructions and cooperation etc. PBCA offers this complete and comprehensive VPK program in Jupiter Farms to families located in the Farms.

Children engage individually as well as collectively in the highly rated, nationally recognized, A Beka phonics and beginner reader program.
