WHAT WILL MY CHILD LEARN

Our 4-year-old and young-5’s class's focus is providing children with the skills and experiences they need to be ready for Kindergarten. Our teachers put an intentional emphasis on teaching children letters, numbers, name writing, as well as communication and self-help skills.

Each school day's format includes free choice, large group circle time, small group time, and outside play on our enclosed and expansive playground.

CURRICULUM

The curriculum for all our classes includes activities that center on math, science, music, art, cooking, oral language skills, social skills, and large & small motor skill development. Dramatic play is also included.

 

The Pre-K program follows the award-winning Handwriting Without Tears curriculum for handwriting skills and letter recognition.

 

In addition, we provide opportunities for spiritual development. Children will learn simple Bible stories, songs, and truths about God’s love and kindness.

 

Each week the activities in each room are changed providing a rich and engaging learning environment that continually holds the children's interest.
