4 Year Preschool

Our core values begin at an early age.


Preschool curriculum is designed to reflect God’s love toward us, and the uniqueness of God’s creation in each child.

The focus of our program is to provide for the development of the whole child: spiritual, physical, emotional, social and intellectual. We encourage independent thinking, development of social and motor skills, pre-reading and writing skill, and creativity. We introduce spiritual development through Bible stories, prayer, songs and weekly chapel.

4 Year Old Preschool Curriculum


In the four-year preschool the materials, equipment and curriculum are designed to reflect the developmental level of the child and to foster growth and learning. Children will have the opportunity to experiment with art materials, participate in cooking, travel on field trips, and exercise through both outdoor and indoor play. Music, books, stories, puzzles, readiness activities and dramatic play will be available daily. Pre-reading and pre-writing activities are an integral part of the program. 

The children will be encouraged to be independent with self-help skills such as attending to bathroom needs, washing hands, placing personal items brought from home each day in the appropriate place, packing up their own backpack prior to dismissal and putting on socks, shoes, coats, and sweaters when necessary.

Much of our learning is in the area of social adjustments such as learning to share, playing with others, cooperating, respecting authority, developing awareness of other’s rights and needs, and taking care of property.

We plan a classroom climate that reflects God’s love for us. Through role modeling, we help the children develop Christian attitudes of truth, peace, integrity, and love toward one another. We want each child to feel secure enough to venture into new friendships and assured enough to take new steps toward autonomy.

Enrichment Programs


Computer

Preschoolers will experience various academic based on-line activities in support of the K4 classroom curriculum. In learning to use the mouse, they will strengthen their fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. Students will also participate in quarterly STEM based projects.

Library

Understanding how to explore and use a library is a valuable skill. Students are introduced to these skills through weekly visits to our library. Children independently choose and check out one book per week.

Physical Education

The physical education program includes organized activities to help students develop skills important to their physical growth and overall health.
