Early Childhood Curriculum
Reading – The preschool reading program focuses on the skills needed for success in reading in a way that engages young minds. Each student’s needs are met through an individualized approach. During reading station time students will be mastering critical phonics skills, building vocabulary, and increasing comprehension through a variety of activities that are kinesthetic, auditory, and visual.
Math – The math program focuses on developing foundational number concepts that are necessary for all of mathematics. Through hands on experiences, students will also learn skills in patterning, classifying, graphing, and basic geometry.
Social Studies – Even at this young age children can begin building a foundation for knowledge as they connect historical figures and facts with holiday and seasonal celebrations. Students will develop an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of community members as they look at the classroom community and compare it to the community in which they live.
Art – Students use many different media to express their creativity and explore the world of art. As students experience the creative process, they build confidence, increase fine motor skills, and feel confident and uninhibited in their ability to create art.
Science – The goal of the science curriculum is to help instill a curiosity and wonder about the amazing world that God has created. Students explore various topics including the human body, animal characteristics, and plants. An experiential approach is taken to foster each child’s natural inquisitiveness.
Bible – A Biblical worldview is central to all that we do in the preschool classroom and is integrated throughout the entire program. God’s Amazing Creation is our curriculum theme. Students will memorize Bible verses and learn many Bible stories related to this theme. Each student knows of God’s great love for him/her through the activities and learning in the classroom.
Social/ Emotional Skills – One of the primary goals of the preschool program is to develop confident and responsible individuals. There are many ways teachers work on this in the classroom such as allowing students choices and independence as they carry out tasks and daily jobs within the classroom. Manners, sharing, taking turns, and cooperative play are taught, modeled and practiced in the classroom.
A positive learning environment is created by our masterful teachers who meet the needs of individuals and demonstrate love for each student. Knowing that they are loved and cared for in the classroom is essential in the development of happy, healthy students.
