OUR GOAL FOR PRE-K

The K4 (four-year-old kindergarten) class operates 5 days a week from 8:05 a.m. to 3:05 p.m. A half-day attendance option is available. The program provides structured learning in phonics, numbers, and handwriting. Through the strong reading program students learn to read consonant-vowel-consonant words by the end of the school year. This program offers a positive educational experience that helps develop a child’s mind, body, and spirit, while encouraging good habits and the establishment of a strong foundation for future schooling. Children must be four-years-old by October 1 of the school year to enroll.

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Bible: Bible is integrated throughout the whole day. Bible time is set aside for the children to learn Bible lessons and often hands-on activities are used to help illustrate the lesson. Bible integration is even extended into learning centers and snack.

Phonics: Students are taught each upper and lower case letter of the alphabet, as well as the sound each letter makes. By mid-year students are practicing blending, and by the end of the year, students are blending and reading consonant-vowel-consonant words.

Handwriting: Students are instructed on proper grip, posture, spacing, and paper position. Students learn to print their own names. Proper formation of upper and lower case letters and numbers 1-20 are practiced.

Numbers: Students practice counting, number concepts for 1-20, graphing, and measurement using standing and non-standard units. Students are also taught concepts, such as more/less, longer/shorter, heavier/lighter, time, and temperature.

Readiness Skills: Students participate in a variety of age appropriate activities to encourage development socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and academically. Activities include manners training, large group playtime, small group learning centers, beanbag and scarf movement to music, rest time, art projects, and much more.
