Our regular preschool and kindergarten programs begin at 9:30 AM. These are set up for children ages 3-5. As always, our primary goal is to support homeschooling families but our preschool is open to all children of the appropriate age. Potty training is not required, and our caring and qualified teachers and aides offer a full day of varied, carefully planned activities. Your child will enjoy a day of music, art, gym, shapes, colors, snacks, free play, and so much more. The older children will work on letter recognition, writing, and numbers as well. It is a wonderful supplement to the work and play they enjoy at home the rest of the week.
Preschool activities include:
- cutting out and learning shapes
- sign language
- free time
- snack time
- gym time
- alphabet, number, and writing games
- and so much more
Kindergarten activities include:
- learn number and letter recognition
- science and math
- fun, hands-on thematic units
- Bible stories
- gym times where we learn new games and get our exercise
- morning and afternoon snacks
- creative play
We will seek to develop character and group skills such as listening well and raising our hands before we speak. There will be games and crafts to make learning more fun and we always have a great time together.
Beginning at 8am along with the older kids, we have a certified Kindermusik teacher who will be teaching a class to our 3-5 year-olds. Parents or caregivers are invited to stay the first few minutes of class each week. This delightful hour of imagination and wonder is sure to please all our young children – and their parents.
