Yes. Faculty and staff undergo a background check. Volunteers that work closely with children also undergo a background check.
On average, we have smaller classroom sizes for a more personal feel. So it's unusually 13-16 students.
We go on many field trips all year long. From swimming to cowboy museums, it's always a blast.
We are a member of Christian Schools International and use the Accredited ABEKA Curriculum.
We use the A-Beka curriculum paired with age-appropriate, creative hands-on activities that incorporate kindergarten through the 3rd grade readiness skills. In addition, we offer music, piano, dance and other extra curriculum activities.
Due to our very extraordinary time in history, True Vine/.beKidZ has adopted the following guidance from the Center of Disease Control (CDC). While these are mere guidelines and do not represent any state or federal laws as of yet, True Vine/.beKidZ will do due diligence to follow these guidelines where ethically and morally possible. As a caveat, please be aware that many of the CDC guidelines may be in conflict with our mission to reach the hurting with the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are told to lay hands on the sick, to visit those in distress and to practice faith at all times. When the CDC guidelines conflict with the commands of Christ, then True Vine/.beKidZ will obey God rather than men. The following are straight from the CDC’s website:
Masks: Masks are optional.
Students will not be required to wear face coverings during the 2021-2022 school year, unless conditions change in the state and local authorities demand it. Students that desire to wear a face covering may do so. Students who do wear masks will be supported in their decision.
Group gatherings are necessary for the help and mental stability of children. No child will be prevented from playing with other children or being near another child, unless the local authorities deemed that a child should be quarantined.
Parents will be allowed to visit the interior of school buildings. The school will closely monitor COVID-19 conditions in our community through the school year and may limit parental visits within the buildings if needed for certain periods of time.
Students will not be required to wear masks on busses or vans.
No asymptomatic students will be considered contagious of disease unless the parent or local authorities bring this to our attention. True Vine/.beKidZ has no authority to declare an asymptomatic child quarantined. Therefore, True Vine/.beKidZ will follow the guidance in the school handbook regarding any contagious or airborne illness.
