Students in prekindergarten receive a Christ-centered education. With an emphasis on academic and spiritual development, the five-day-a-week prekindergarten program is designed to help students transition to kindergarten. Together, with the family, we prepare our students for success in the classroom and beyond by encouraging a deep understanding of God’s great love for them.


The prekindergarten program prepares children for kindergarten and elementary success by focusing on a strong academic foundation in core curriculum subjects as well as strengthening each child’s relationship with Jesus. Students pray, hear Bible stories, and sing as part of Christian instruction. Math concepts are introduced using written and hands-on materials. Language arts instruction includes reading readiness, phonics, and handwriting. Specifically, the teacher uses Handwriting Without Tears to teach literacy, phonics, and math.

Prekindergarten students are expected to follow the elementary school dress code. Students attend music, library, and chapel each week. Field trips and special events are used to enrich and support curriculum. Some special education services are available.


To enroll a child in prekindergarten, the child must be four years old by June 1st. Students entering prekindergarten may be evaluated for their readiness before their admission is official. All children must be fully toilet trained. A valid birth certificate, proof of immunizations or a certified immunization waiver, and a physical are required prior to attending school.


Prekindergarten is offered five days a week. Click here for the schedule. Before and after school extended care is available.


Preschool classes are available for three-year-old students and for younger four-year-old students.
