Spiritually – At TGS your child will begin to understand the love and acceptance of Jesus toward all people as
we endeavor to demonstrate God’s love to your child as they interact with other children and teachers. We
want the children to recognize that God is the Creator, Jesus is His Son, and that He loves and accepts us as
we are.
Socially – Your child will learn the privileges and limits of group life. Your child will begin to develop a caring
attitude toward others and will begin to develop self-discipline through gradually learning to make wise
Emotionally – Your child will develop a positive self-concept, learning to love and accept others as he or she
is loved and accepted. TGS will help your child learn to verbally express both positive and negative feelings.

physically healthy and to accept responsibility for their own physical well being where your child can feel proud
of their accomplishments.
Intellectually – Your child will be encouraged to build skills in listening and language development and
understand concepts related to size, shape, space, color, and distance. Reading and math readiness skills will
be practiced. Your child will be given the opportunity to reason, discover, remember, experiment, and
