One section meets M,W,F (8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.) and one section meets M-F. The kindergarten program provides children with a delightful learning experience. Children are taught foundational skills and concepts in a manner that is enjoyable and enriching. Caring, Christian faculty and a warm atmosphere provide an environment in which learning and growth flourish.
Bible instruction is a specific part of each day’s lessons, both specifically and through integration into the other academic lessons. The Bible lesson appeals to the heart as well as to the mind of the child. Scriptural truths become real and concrete. Singing, Bible memory and prayer are also part of the Bible curriculum.
A phonics-based reading program that emphasizes understanding and enjoyment is taught. Math instruction includes hands-on reinforcement to develop understanding and problem-solving skills. Counting, number writing, simple geometric figures and money values are among the skills presented.
Social development is encouraged through interaction in play and class time. Special attention is given to the development of Christian character and the application of Scriptural principles.
