Pre-School offers the opportunity for social interaction, learning and acquainting your child with a more structured environment. It is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the classroom without overwhelming them. It includes activities that are age appropriate. It encourages them to learn, create, and interact with their peers in a safe and loving setting.
The curriculum will consist of a combination of the A Beka preschool program, Scripture Bites, Bob Jones and other developmentally appropriate books and materials. Each month will consist of one or two main themes:
* Bible stories, * Bible memory, * Early math skills, * Language development, * Field trips, * Arts and crafts, * Discovery opportunities, * Physical exercise
At the conclusion of each month, there will be a celebration day. Special snacks, costumes, sharing, and activities will be experienced on these days. We will coordinate the activities around the themes for that month as a review/fun day.
You have several choices for your child’s preschool schedule.
