Mathematics

Our math program emphasizes the development of basic concepts and skills through the use of manipulatives and activities that inspire thinking, curiosity and problem solving. These include:

  • recognizing patterns
  • sorting and classifying
  • graphing
  • counting
  • measuring
  • recognizing numbers
  • shapes

Science

The science program promotes thinking through “hands on” exploring and learning. Objects explored include:

  • plants
  • seasons
  • animals
  • animal habitats
  • weather
  • magnets
  • senses
  • insects
  • dinosaurs

Social Studies

Preschool is the first community your child will experience outside of your family. Our social studies curriculum enables your child to develop personal independence and understanding on how we interact with our environment. The program is designed to teach socialization skills that will prepare each child for larger academic settings. The concepts explored include:

  • developing an awareness that each of us is unique, yet we share many things that are alike
  • developing an awareness of our family and friends
  • introducing basic historical facts through studies of the holidays and special current events
  • recalling and recreating experiences through dramatic play
  • fostering leadership skills
  • developing a sense of personal responsibility

Special Activities

Each preschool class will participate in art, music, and chapel classes weekly. A visit to the library is also made on a weekly basis. In most cases, these classes will be taught by the certified specialist. Field trips are taken at various times during the course of the year in order to help “bring to life” subjects that have been discussed in the classroom. Of course, recess and snack time are a daily part of the program!

Testing and Evaluation

At the recommendation of the teacher or the request of the parent(s), children entering the K5 program are given a developmental and school readiness evaluation. This helps the teacher to know where each student will be developmentally when entering her classroom. She can then create appropriate learning experiences to meet the needs of her class. The Child Development and Learning Summary is scheduled four times during the school year. This assessment documents your child’s progress with respect to our goals.

Your child’s early school experience will be one that will affect his life for years to come. If a child is properly challenged and given the opportunities to become self confident and self-assured, chances are he will be on the way to a happy school career. Our prayer is that the Lord will give you wisdom as you make this very important decision for your child and your family.
