Christ Our Savior Academy was founded in 1996 to provide a nurturing, creative and safe environment where young children can develop a love for learning about their Savior, themselves, and the world around them.
Nearly twenty years later, COS Academy is a place where little ones can gently be shown their responsibility to God, parents, teachers, classmates and themselves. We are blessed to be able to continue to offer excellent education, nurturing care, and the message of Jesus to the children and families of the Columbia area. We are fortunate to be supported in part by Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church. This allows us to employ teachers with further education in Early Childhood Education, provide an excellent program, and still keep tuition at a reasonable rate for parents. We would love to have you join our family!
We know that your child is your most precious gift. We also know that God has given you, the parent, the responsibility with a promise – to “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it,” (Proverbs 22:6). We believe that the best atmosphere for learning is one in which collaboration between home and school is strong. It would be an honor to partner with you for your child’s growth. Working with us, you will find a close-knit community for children to learn and grow in so many ways:
The children learn of their Savior and his deep love for them as it is integrated throughout the curriculum and in their interactions with their teachers and each other.
In Social & Emotional Skills...
A child’s social and emotional skills are a very important part of the foundation needed for learning and growth. We work with all of the children to develop and grow these skills throughout their years at COS Academy. Through stable routines, a Christian example, and gentle, consistent guidance, the children learn focus and self-control, perspective taking, effective communication, and confidence to take on challenges. The loving, Christian care creates an atmosphere that also fosters helpfulness, generosity and caring.
Our carefully planned and stimulating learning centers help the children to engage in self-directed learning every day. Our teachers guide learning by being facilitators for children’s discoveries, experiences and questions. The teachers also plan studies based on the HighScope Curriculum, which includes activities designed to foster pre-reading and writing skills, mathematics, social studies, science and much more!
