About Seeds of Knowledge Preschool and Daycare
Seeds of Knowledge offers preschool and daycare for ages 4 months to 10 years of age. We are a registered daycare ministry of Floyds Knobs Christian Church. Our curriculum has a primary emphasis on the individual child. Our classrooms are center-based with new activities and lessons planned regularly. Rooms are designed so that children have numerous choices within an environment of maximum learning. Teachers act primarily as facilitators encouraging a strong partnership between the home and the daycare.
Seeds of Knowledge is designed for children to explore newly found independence. Through individualized prescribed instruction, they engage in stimulating activities led by skilled and trained Lead Teachers. During their day, children take part in “hands-on” social interactions, physical activity, preschool, arts, crafts, and dramatics which build on their individual character.
While under careful guidance and direction, the children are given opportunities to express themselves and to be creative through active learning. We have prepared organized “imagination stations” that are developmentally appropriate for them to interact freely with peers and designed for team development in a diverse setting.
Seeds of Knowledge was previously run under the name Play 4 Hours. Play 4 Hours opened in October of 2007 and Annie Shearer took ownership in January 2010.
All teachers are trained and certified in First Aid and CPR. Each of them are involved in the community and have several years experience working with and caring for children of all ages.
We will continue to grow professionally through further education and training with the help of my staff and the community.
I graduated from Purdue University in 2007, which a Bachelor's of Art Degree in Elementary Education. I taught 2nd grade before realizing my true passion is working with younger children!

We have two curriculums; one designed for the toddlers, and one designed for the 4-5 year olds. I am confident with these curriculums, your child will be ready for kindergarten when the time comes!

Nap Time (12pm-2:30pm) – This time is used for all children to relax and have down time.

All older children have their own cot which is placed in their classroom during nap time.

The afternoons are designated for structured and self-guided activities with peers. They will participate in: outside time, pretend play, games, art, story time, dress-up, and more.
After School – These children will be dropped off around 2:40 pm, and immediately go into the kitchen for snack. They will then go upstairs to their room and complete any homework with one of the teachers. When homework is complete, these kids will do an activity or craft before ending the day with free time.
