For our Pre-Kindergarten 4-year old category, parents may choose a 3-day a week class that will meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, or a 4-day a week class that meets Monday - Thursday, or a 5-day a week option.
All Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classes meet from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Extended care is available before and after school if needed.
Encouraging Natural Curiosity
Three and four year olds have a natural curiosity and zest for learning. Our curriculums foster this innate curiosity as children grow and learn in a nurturing Christian environment.
In our Pre-Kindergarten classes our teachers use the Saxon Early Learning curriculum. It is a completely integrated thematic curriculum that covers areas of language and early literacy development, math, science, social studies, and art. This integrated curriculum is introduced through a variety of multi-sensory hands-on learning activities. Beautifully illustrated original stories and favorite childhood classics are also included along with science and math manipulatives.
In our Preschool 3 classes our students study thematic units throughout the year. These units integrate science through experiments, social studies, art and early literacy skills. Phonemic awareness, letter and number recognition and counting is introduced through Frog Street Press Sing and Read Alphabet and Number series which uses brightly colored illustrations, alliteration and familiar tunes to remember the letters and numbers. Color and shape recognition is also integrated into the curriculum.
We use Voyages from Concordia Publishing House as our religion curriculum. Our Bible stories are introduced in chapel and retold in a variety of ways throughout the week along with doing Bible crafts to reinforce the Bible truths. Jesus is always the focus of all we do, and our teachers are committed to bringing Jesus in to all parts of our curriculum for the spiritual development of our students.
