Our four year-old classrooms offer opportunities to develop the whole child
, as we continue to lay the foundations for learning and prepare the children for kindergarten through the development of each child intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Language development and literacy are taught through Activate Early Learning, a unit-based approach that teaches comprehension, predicting, and sequencing to the children. Handwriting without Tears curriculum is used to teach the children pre-writing skills, recognition of letters, and the sounds the letters most commonly make, resulting in Creative and Complex Thinkers as well as Effective Communication by the children.
On a typical preschool day, your child might explore geometry and shapes in their classroom Math Center, or water density in the Science Center. Monthly Science Labs offer opportunities for the children to experience and learn about topics such as molecules, water, color, and light. Fine motor development continues as the children learn more about writing, drawing, and pencil control in the Writing Center. Outside play develops gross motor skills as the children are learning about balance and fitness through our “Kid Fit” program, as well as free choice play. Each child grows socially and emotionally through increased work and play habits, taking responsibility for themselves, following classroom routines, and respecting and caring for their classroom environment. As the children listen to and participate in Bible stories and songs, they learn more about Jesus’ love for them, how God created everything, and that the Bible is God’s Word, leading them to be Followers of Christ. Your child will be prepared and ready to learn in Kindergarten
