Preschool

Students in preschool receive a Christ-centered education. With an emphasis on the whole child, our curriculum encourages students to experience the world around them. 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.

Curriculum:

Students pray, hear Bible stories, and sing as part of Christian instruction with the goal of strengthening each child’s faith in Jesus. Each week preschool students attend music and chapel. Handwriting Without Tears, a curriculum designed by occupational therapists and early childhood experts, provides hands-on activities to boost language, literacy, and math skills. Field trips and special events offer more learning opportunities.

Three-Year-Old Preschool:

The program for 3-year-old students encourages children to learn through their experiences. The curriculum is developed around themes such as colors, safety, shapes, and seasons. Creativity and self-expression are encouraged through art, music, stories, and play. Children are exposed to letters and numbers through a modified version of Handwriting Without Tears.

Four-Year-Old Preschool:

The program for 4-year-old students is designed to meet the needs of the developing preschool student. Creativity, self-expression, small muscle dexterity, communication skills, and interpersonal relationships are stressed in all areas of the curriculum. Letters and their sounds and beginning math concepts are introduced through a modified version of Handwriting Without Tears.

Prekindergarten:

Prekindergarten is a more challenging class for our older four-year-old students and young five-year-old students. Information can be found here.
