Two-year-olds learn through their own experiences, trial and error, repetition, and imitation. Teachers guide and encourage this by ensuring the environment is safe and supportive. An appropriate program for children younger than three invites play, active exploration, movement, and socialization. Students learn about their environment, to share and play with others, and to make a smooth separation from parents. In order to enroll in this class, students must be two years old by July 1st and also must be working on potty-training.
Preschool 3’s Class
The Preschool 3’s classes offer a well-balanced enrichment for three-year-olds and younger four-year-olds. Within a loving Christian environment, teachers encourage and support children as they build social skills, large and small muscle skills, spiritual knowledge, and readiness for their future academic learning.
Young 4’s Class
The Young 4’s class offers curriculum and activities that meet the needs of those children whose birthdays are in June, July, or August only. This class will focus on academics: learning a letter of the week, numbers, writing, and some letter sounds. At the end of the school year, the child should meet requirements for beginning kindergarten if the parent chooses to send them or they will be prepared to attend our PreK class the following fall.
Our PreKinder program uses A Beka curriculum. PreKinder offers an academic experience to equip each child who plans to enter Kindergarten the following year, with the skills necessary to master the tasks set forth by any of our local schools for Kindergarten admission. PreKinder will foster your child’s growth and development spiritually, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically.
Our Half-Day Kindergarten provides a Christian-based education, smaller class sizes, a teacher and assistant teacher, and a “hands-on” approach to learning. Kindergarten follows Indiana State Standards using the A Beka curriculum. Smaller class sizes and shorter days allow for a more concentrated time of learning and fun.
The goal of our Kindergarten is to give your child a safe learning environment and a strong academic foundation that includes Language Arts, Bible, Math, Science, Social Studies, as well as fine arts activities. This program will ready your child for first grade.
