Pre-Kindergarten Program


Our Pre-K program provides a quality experience for our youngest students! 

 

Our  teachers understand that:

  • God created each  child as a unique individual.
  • Children learn about God's world through discovery, exploration, and experimentation.
  • More than a brain comes to school! Preschool students are developing socially, physically, and spiritually, as well as academically.

Therefore, our Pre-K Program is built upon our developmental philosophy.

  • We recognize that God created children as unique individuals who grow at various rates.
  • Our instruction is based on each child's needs, abilities and readiness.
  • We design learning experiences to engage young preschool minds in critical and creative thinking.
  • Our program addresses the development of the whole child--social, intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual.
