OUR CLASSES

Kindergarten is a full day program offered four or five days per week.  Our program's goal is to develop the whole child; socially, emotionally, physically, academically and spiritually. The classes are small in size to provide individual attention. The Kindergarten core curriculum includes reading readiness, mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, handwriting, writer’s workshop, arts & crafts, book time/story time, open-ended play, chapel, devotions, and Bible.  Specials include music, art, library, physical education and computer.  

Both the four and five day programs provide a strong foundation for the experience of school.  Students may switch to our five-day program at any point during the school year (recommended by mid-year) in order to get them ready for the first grade.  Kindergarten students must be five years of age by September 1st.
