The Boland Family

Wyatt (2 Year Olds)

We love WCCS, but more importantly Wyatt loves it! Wyatt will randomly tell me “I love school days.” He will get in his wagon and ask me to take him to school at random times on the weekend. I know that he feels safe and loved at school but I also think he loves the way that school challenges him. WCCS is not just childcare or an option for education, it is an investment in your child’s discipleship and spiritual growth.

How long has your family been a part of our school?

Since August of 2023

Why did you choose WCCS for your child?

We quickly realized that Wyatt was soaking up everything he was learning at his previous school and coming home singing songs and reciting things. We desired for Wyatt to attend a school where the things he was learning and the songs he’d be singing would be gospel-centered and Christ-focused. We wanted the teachers to be invested, not only in his intellectual growth, but his spiritual growth as well. Now, having attended for half a year, we can tell that WCCS has provided a gospel-centered education for Wyatt and for that we are so thankful!

What do you love most about WCCS?

WCCS has truly come alongside us in the discipleship of our son. One example in particular stands out to me. Wyatt, who is only 2 years old, came home around Thanksgiving reciting an entire story from the Bible. The story of the 10 lepers had been their focus at school that month and with animation and conviction Wyatt would tell the story of the “10 men who were very very sick. The doctors could not even help them.” He would tell the whole story, all the way down to the one man coming back to say thank you to Jesus. For a 2 year old to be able to recite a Bible story from memory is evidence that his teachers at WCCS are truly laboring in his life and helping him to grow to know Jesus more.

What is one word that describes our school? Tell us why you chose that word.

Intentional. I have been so impressed with how each month the curriculum is cohesive and all encompassing to provide my 2 year old with age appropriate skills and to help him in his development. For anything to stick with a toddler, you have to be intentional and consistent with how you present the information. From the songs, to the color of the month, to the crafts and the Bible story; It all is crafted together in a way that a Wyatt can understand, comprehend, and share with me once he gets home.

Describe one of your favorite teachers and the impact that this person has had in your student’s life – or perhaps a specific example of a way this teacher has cared for your student in a special way.

Wyatt only attends school 3 days a week (half days), which could make it harder for him to feel included in the class or to pick up on routines as quickly, but Mrs. Megan has always been very intentional to make sure that Wyatt does not feel like he is behind or left out. She allows him to come in for special days and he makes sure he feels like part of the class. Mrs. Megan is always available, encouraging, and helpful and we are so grateful for her!

How is WCCS preparing your child for God’s call on their lives, including hopes, plans, and dreams for college, career, and/or community?

WCCS is teaching Wyatt his colors, shapes, and letters, how to make friends, how to follow directions, how to be kind, but most importantly they are teaching him about God, the Bible, and Jesus. Everything that Wyatt’s teachers are doing with him is setting a foundation for him spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally as he continues to develop and grow into a little boy. I am thankful that WCCS doesn’t see Wyatt as too young and sees the importance of beginning this type of education, even at the young age of 2.

What would you tell another parent to encourage them to consider enrolling their child at WCCS?

We love WCCS, but more importantly Wyatt loves it! Wyatt will randomly tell me “I love school days.” He will get in his wagon and ask me to take him to school at random times on the weekend. I know that he feels safe and loved at school but I also think he loves the way that school challenges him. WCCS is not just childcare or an option for education, it is an investment in your child’s discipleship and spiritual growth. I can confidently say that WCCS checks all the boxes for curriculum and content to ensure your student is getting a great education that integrates Christ seamlessly into everything they do.
