(Proverbs 22:6) Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
A strong early foundation for learning is key to academic success in the future. Our advanced, full-day K4 program is designed not only to promote kindergarten readiness, but to enable children to become enthusiastic learners for life. We use the A Beka Curriculum to develop a love of learning in the following areas:
Spiritual Development: Through a comprehensive Bible curriculum including stories and worship your children are able to discover God's world.
Social/Emotional Development: Through large group, small group, and individual activities, your children are able to foster Child-like behavior towards others in the form of interaction, cooperation, achievement, and the beginnings of David-Jonathan type relationships.
Physical Development: Through formal instruction in PE, art, writing, etc., your children are engaging in and developing a variety of motor skills.
Cognitive Development: Through a variety of classroom instruction and activities, your children will develop abilities in the area of critical thinking skills, active engagement in problem solving, curious and purposeful inquiry and questioning, and use of words to describe their ideas, observations, and feelings.
Language Development: Through engaging in developmentally appropriate activities such as letter recognition and phonetic awareness in a literacy rich environment, your children will get a substantial head-start in English language development.
New for 2017-2018: By utilizing a team teaching model, in addition to advanced math and language curriculum, your students will be engaged and enthralled by instruction and activities in both Spanish and Science.
