Early Education

Early Education consists of students from 12 months through kindergarten. The curriculum is designed to meet each child’s developmental needs by offering a stimulating hands-on approach to learning. This encourages appropriate development of emotional stability, social competency, intellectual ability, and spiritual awareness and maturity.

Toddlers (beginning at 12 months)

Our Toddler classes encourage each child’s development through play and varied experiences. Social/emotional development is nurtured through group time, interaction with peers, taking turns, and making choices – to name a few! Fine and gross motor skills are developed through manipulatives, puzzles, finger plays, music movement, and outdoor play.  Cognitive and creative skills are encouraged through problem-solving, colors, shapes, seasons, and the use of various mediums in centers and outdoors. Spiritual development is encouraged through prayer, reverence of prayer, and daily Bible times. Programs are offered five days, three days (MWF), or two days (TTh) per week.

Morning Program: 8:15 a.m.-12:20 p.m. | Extended Day: 12:20 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

Pre-K 2 and Pre-K 3

Our Pre-K 2 and Pre-K 3 classes focus on developing our students’ social, emotional, cognitive, and language skills. Children have individual and group play in centers where they learn valuable social and thinking skills.

They develop spiritually and emotionally with a weekly Bible theme and daily prayer time. Other classroom activities and experiences relate to the weekly theme (such as a preschool math, art, or science lesson). We assist children in developing autonomy by allowing for achievable, age-appropriate accomplishments.  Programs are offered five days, three days (MWF), or two days (TTh) per week.

Morning Program: 8:15 a.m.-12:20 p.m. | Extended Day: 12:20 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

Pre-K 4, Pre-K 5, and Kindergarten

Our Pre-K 4, Pre-K 5 and Kindergarten instructional programs provide age-appropriate activities for spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth. Christian moral and spiritual values are taught in the classroom and are interwoven throughout each day’s activities.

Character development is encouraged with pro-social techniques such as sharing, cooperation, helping, taking turns, and problem-solving.  Obedience, proper responses, and correct attitudes are encouraged. Opportunities are provided for supervised exploration and experimentation that develop cognitive skills. The curriculum provides creative art and musical experiences as well as activities to develop both fine and gross motor skills. Core subjects include Bible, English language arts, math, science, and social studies. Students have co-curricular classes of chapel, music, library, Spanish and physical education. Pre-K 5 and Kindergarten classes have STEAM lab each week. The preschool programs (Pre-K 4) are offered five days and three days (MWF) per week. Kindergarten is offered as a full or half-day program.

Chapel

Early Education Chapel is designed to lead young children to love God, to participate in worship, and to learn how to serve Him through their lives. Students in Pre-K 4 through Kindergarten are provided a variety of experiences including worship through music, scripture, and dramatization of Bible stories. Students are also introduced to guests who share how they impact the world by serving God. Each class has the opportunity to present a chapel, allowing the students to participate in leading worship time. We seek to plant seeds of God’s truth in the hearts of young children, anticipating a rich harvest in years to come.
