Three-Year-Old Preschool Program

Our three-year-old preschool program is offered to children who are three years old by September 1. Through song, play and experiential activities, the students will develop socially, emotionally and academically. Bible themes are infused into the curriculum. Letter recognition and beginning sounds are introduced through the Jolly Phonics Program.  Each day is comprised of small and large group time, free choice play time, large motor skill time on either indoor or outdoor equipment, and snack time.  Our belief is that a three-year-old and those younger need socialization as well as academic stimulation. Three different options are offered:

 

Days
 Time
2 Days:  Tuesday and Thursday  8:45 a.m.  -  11:45 a.m.
3 Days: Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8:45 a.m.  -  11:45 a.m.
5 Days: Monday through Friday 8:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.

 

Four-Year-Old Preschool Program

Our program for four-year-olds will reinforce the skills that are taught in our three-year-old program.  Our emphasis is on self-reliance, socialization and academic skills which will prepare students for kindergarten.  Through structured and free time activities, the students will continue to learn about shapes, color, and letter recognition.  The Rowland Reading Program is used to help the students advance in phonemic awareness and word recognition.  Pre-math skills are also introduced.  Bible themes are an integral part of the curriculum.  The daily schedule also includes large motor skill time on either indoor or outdoor equipment and snack time.Two different options are offered:
