Early Education

The Early Education program includes 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, which encourages appropriate development of emotional stability, social competency, intellectual ability, and spiritual awareness and maturity. Students have the opportunity to attend and participate in chapel, designed to lead young children to God, to participate in worship, and to learn how to serve Him.
The Toddler program is offered five, three (MWF), or two (TTh) days per week. The morning program is from 8:15 a.m. to 12:20 p.m., and Extended Day is from 12:20 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The Pre-K 2 and Pre-K 3 programs are offered five days, three days (MWF), or two days (TTh) per week. The morning program is from 8:15 a.m. to 12:20 p.m., and Extended Day is from 12:20 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The Pre-K 4 and Pre-K 5 programs are offered five days and three days (MWF) per week.

The Kindergarten program is offered as a full or half-day program.

It is a great feeling to drop your child off at a school where you know they are valued, cared for, challenged academically, and most importantly, taught to love the Lord.
