3-Year-Old Program (Preschool)
Our earliest childhood program offers a social environment where our youngest students grow in confidence and curiosity as they explore the world around them through play and hands-on activities.
Children develop readiness skills such as following directions, practicing fine and gross motor skills, developing concepts and expressing themselvelves verbally. They enjoy a variety of childen's literature in the form of books, poetry, nursery rhymes and fairy tales. They are introduced to technology as a tool to learn more about the world. And of course they are encouraged to appreciate all of God's gifts.
Our 4 year-old program prepares children for full-day Kindergarten. We foster basic social and academic skills within a still playful and child-focused environment. In addition to building upon concepts from 3 year-old Preschool, this program introduces print and phonemic awareness skills through writing letters and numbers, and playing with sounds.
Students work cooperatively to solve problems and further develop their confidence by trying new things. Faith formation is continued through Bible stories and related activities. An add-on session provides additional flexibility if your child is ready to begin the transition to full-day school.
