PRE-KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM:

The pre-kindergarten program is a balance of academic learning and child-directed exploration and play. Our goals are that children will love to learn, love to come to school and will be successful at kindergarten entry.

Bible: Bible stories are taught with an emphasis on character development. For example, students hear the story of Jonah with an emphasis on the benefits of obedience and sharing the Good News of the Lord Jesus.

Reading: Reading is taught phonetically with one-on-one instruction time, as well as group learning. Children learn consonant and short vowel sounds. Students learn to print using traditional manuscript. Comprehension skills are also strengthened.img_4990

Math skills: numeral recognition 1-20counting, patterns, puzzles, sequencing, beginning addition.

Science & Social Studies: Hands on, creative units of learning

Music & Art: A regular part of each school week.img_4995

Spanish: Students will learn about the Spanish culture as well as basic vocabulary and songs.

Children have scheduled daily time to play with blocks, art mediums, puzzles, books, dramatic play and other manipulatives. 

Learning to share, take turns and problem solve are priorities.img_5340
