At Lipscomb Academy, we believe early childhood education is the cornerstone of child development and sets the foundation for future school success.
Young children are learning rapidly in the first five years of life, and how they learn and develop is critical. The SEED School encourages students to Seek, Explore, Experiment and Discover (SEED) the world around them. We teach them of God’s never-ending love and ignite their innate curiosity as we explore the wonders of His kingdom. We realize our young learners are changing daily and strive to provide a rich, engaging experience that nurtures and challenges their hearts and minds.
Unique learning opportunities
All SEED classes (PK2-Kindergarten) follow a literacy-based curriculum focused on content knowledge, social skills and linguistics. As our young students begin to master listening, speaking and writing, we maximize their learning opportunities by teaching them to be inquisitive, adventurous and creative. We know a high-quality early education experience yields greater gains in social, emotional and cognitive development. For this reason, we capitalize on every child’s strengths and set each one on a uniquely individual trajectory for success.
More than a preschool
The benefits of the SEED School program reach far beyond the typical preschool experience. We follow high-quality academic standards, implement developmentally appropriate curricula and offer smaller class sizes. We equip our young students with social, emotional and spiritual knowledge that will help them succeed throughout their lifetimes. Our teachers play a critical role in your child’s growth and development which is why we require them to be faith-based, licensed educators. They are specialists in the world of early childhood and know specifically what this population needs. The schema from these formative years will provide all Lipscomb Academy SEED School students with the fundamentals needed for lifelong learning.
Experience the difference
Your child’s early years are important to you, and they are important to us. It is during this time children have the greatest capacity and appetite to learn. We take pride in being a part of their education and daily lives. Our entire SEED School program seeks to support and nurture young children and their families. We invite you to be a part of this safe and welcoming environment and look forward to partnering with you on this journey.
Available class options
The SEED School is not only a stellar kindergarten preparatory program but also a visionary, faith-based community committed to serving your child’s spiritual, emotional and academic needs. Our program is designed with each child in mind, giving attention to individual talents and learning styles to better prepare every young learner for a successful school experience.
We begin our pathway with younger students in order to provide a consistent and natural flow of instruction. All grades in the SEED School follow a rigorous set of guidelines and developmentally appropriate standards to produce students who internalize a growth mindset specific to readiness for kindergarten and beyond. Our student:teacher ratios are intentionally below state program requirements enabling us to provide this individualized and differentiated approach to instruction.
