My visit to TCS was a fun and informative one with the help of my tour guide, Kaylin VandenBroek. As I entered each class room I was greeted by some smiling faces. One little red-headed girl giggled as she waved to me.
I sat down to have a chat with a group of children from the kindergarten class. They were excited to tell me all about snowy owls that have big yellow eyes and claws that are used when catching mice. They also explained that owls have to be very patient and that they see very well at night. I noticed on the wall a flyer advertising their owl pictures that were made into greeting cards for sale, four for a $1.00 and the the proceeds go to the World Wildlife federation.
Each class room was bright and cheery and the atmosphere was so peaceful I didn’t want to leave. Kaylin took me through each room and showed me what the classes were working on.That was also my first experience learning how to play three chords on the ukulele and I found out what a boomwacker is.
When I asked Kaylin what she liked about Timothy Christian School she immediatley answered that it was like a family here and that they care for each other. Often the friendships that are made here are for life. There is a sense of watching out for each other and then she talked about having two little buddies that she helps out.
At one point, I saw students getting up from their seats and turning on the vaccum and grabbing a broom to clean up after lunch. Even the little ones have responsibilites to keep things sparkling.
I was introduced to the concept of Kingdom Building Groups and how they develop their skills when working and problem solving together. They are encouraged to use their creative mind by doing hands on activities. Timothy Christian School challenges their students through a variety of programs and gives these young people a solid foundation.
What a pleasure it was to walk the halls of Timothy Christian School and to meet the super heroes that teach our children.
