Welcome to a preview of the 2019-20 School Year!

The 2019-20 school year boasts some exciting new changes to our class offerings! Over the past two years we have been evaluating the best of our program and finding ways to refine our classes to better fit the needs of our community. We have designed a new set of classes that are based on fit rather than age.

About All Our Classes

In all of our classes, we focus on development of social emotional skills, fine motor skills, strength & postural stability, handedness (left or right), writing readiness, crayon/pencil grip, imitation & copying writing/coloring strokes, play-based learning, and Biblical appreciation and understanding. We incorporate the Learning Without Tears handwriting and school readiness curriculum in all of our classroom.

Pre-kindergarten (new format!)

Monday-Friday

12:30 p.m. - rolling pick-up from 3-3:30pm.

This class is designed for children ages 4 and up or children with at least 1 (one) year of preschool experience.  Pre-K focuses on helping children prepare for Kindergarten or our Kindergarten Prep class.  Students will participate in Chapel, Music, and P.E. once a week. This class is a new blend of what was offered previously in the Fours and Pre-Kindergarten classes. This class spreads out the learning over five days instead of four and offers a slower pace of work more suitable for slightly younger children or those still developing their grip and ability to form letters and numbers.

Curriculum Focus for Pre-K

  • Imitate, trace, copy uppercase letters and lowercase letters (Learning Without Tears My First School Book and supplemental Kickstart Kindergarten Workbook)

  • Begin to write and identify first name
