We create intentional space to ignite the littlest hearts and minds with a love for learning. Our PreK students are nurtured with a solid foundation in the Christian faith while experiencing hands-on, play-based learning which includes literacy, math, music, physical education, chapel, and more.
PLAYING WITH PURPOSE
Learning is an adventure for our pre-kindergarten students. Students engage in learning centers that develop their natural curiosity for God’s world with focus on dramatic play, blocks, sensory, art, library, makerspace, science, and fine motor. Lessons that promote reading and math readiness while developing language skills through listening, speaking, reading and writing. Music and Physical Education classes ensure our little ones express themselves creatively and get their wiggles out. This approach allows the transition to elementary school to be, well, elementary.
CHRIST AT THE CORE
With faith at the center of every classroom experience and our weekly chapels, it is our desire to instill a knowledge and love for Christ. Daily prayer, worship, scripture memory and reading of the Storybook Bible are among the opportunities we provide for our students to engage in a relationship with Jesus while instilling a love for others.
