Two Year Old Program
Must be two by Sept. 1
The goals of the two-year old program are to help the children feel comfortable in unfamiliar situations, to socialize with others, and to gain a feeling of safety when away from home and family. Children will be introduced to pre-literacy and math skills, colors, and shapes. Their Bible curriculum integrates developmentally appropriate activities, Bible Stories, songs and finger plays. This class comes for two days per week.
Three Year Old Program
Must be three by Sept. 1
The development of socialization skills is an integral part of our students growth. The children learn to interact with their peers and teachers by communicating their needs, ideas, concerns, and frustrations. They also learn to respect their classmates as well as their teachers. In addition to the focus on social skills, we introduce an academic program which includes pre-reading, basic math, letter recognition, shapes, colors, and sequencing. Fine and gross motor activities help children be ready for the various tasks. Bible lessons are taught through Bible stories, life lessons and chapel. We offer a two-day and three-day program.
Must be 4 by Sept. 1
Pre-K will prepare your child for Kindergarten through hands-on learning experiences. Bible lessons are taught through Bible stories, life experiences and chapel. Pre-K is an integrated curriculum consisting of Bible, pre-reading, journaling, word walls, pre-math, fine and gross motor development, social studies, science, art, and music. We offer a three-day and four-day program. Regardless of which class you choose, your child will be prepared for Kindergarten.
Extend the day for children 3-year-old through kindergarten by utilizing Lunch Bunch from 11:30-1:00 on Monday through Thursday. Your child will enjoy playing with other children, movement, games, a learning time and of course, lunch.
Extend the learning, extend the fun! From 11:30-3, your child will enjoy more playtime, a social lunch, and more classroom instruction. All these activities work to build up the skills required for Kindergarten.
