Early Childhood

Grades K3-K4

Where learning begins...

Our Early Childhood program features strong, age-appropriate academics that focuses on developing the whole child—socially, mentally, physically, and spiritually. It builds on the learning and developmental foundation begun in the home. The K3/K4 program lays a solid foundation for future educational success by encouraging a positive school experience, developing readiness skills, and cultivating a love of learning within each child. Teachers prepare a fun, positive, and nurturing daily schedule full of activities that address the developmental needs of the child. Activities include large and small group times, individual work, one-on-one time with the teacher, student-chosen learning center activities, and outdoor playtime. Students are introduced to basic Bible concepts and stories that teach Jesus loves everyone, that He gave His Word, the Bible, as a guide for life. The development of Christian character, self-control, and healthy habits is emphasized as well as providing learning opportunities that promote the development of social skills and manners, academic skills and concepts, and creativity.
