All of our children will have daily Bible and character education lessons, and children ages 2 – 5 will participate in daily language development activities, as well. In addition to this, our 2-year-old curriculum will provide your child with instruction in the areas of letter identification and number concepts while 3 year olds will be introduced to phonics (an important basis for reading), and will continue developing number concepts. Our 4 year olds with begin reading and writing and will continue to develop number concepts.
We use the “Fruit of the Spirit” as our daily guide for behavior. This includes love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. We also teach obedience, respect, thankfulness, honesty, and problem solving skills. It is our desire to instill in the children that they are UNIQUE creations of God and allow them to develop the gifts He has placed within them.
In accordance with learning respect for authority, we teach the children to refer to all staff members as “Miss ____” or “Mrs. ____”. We would appreciate your cooperation with this at home also. Example and consistency help them develop this habit.
Our preschool program is a year-round program. This means that academic instruction continues in the summer. Parents who choose to withdraw their child for the summer months will need to provide a registration/deposit fee if they want to secure their child’s place for the following fall. However, priority will be given to those students who are enrolled for the entire year.
* Please understand that our 2-year old academic preschool program is not as extensive as our programs are for 3 – 5 year olds. The 2-year old program will include learning activities that are developmentally appropriate to their age level. They are not expected to know everything that they are taught; it is more of a foundational tool to stimulate their learning abilities. We also work with the family in potty training at this age as well. If you have questions regarding this you may talk with your child’s teacher or the director.
