Our preschool class is a child's first introduction to the preschool environment and focuses on socialization, sharing, and getting along with others. We work on a monthly theme, color, shape and letters. We work to develop fine motor skills, have a joyful outlook on school, and a love of Jesus. This class meets either two or three days a week.
Our pre-k class learns about simple math concepts, letters, and phonics,through fun and hands-on learning. We will prepare children for Kindergarten by practicing our listening skills, extending our attention span, and developing our fine motor skills. This class meets either three days a week.
Our junior kindergarten program is an expansion of our pre-k class. Children in this class cover the same topics, but with more in-depth activities and more hands-on experiences.
