Pre-K3 Curriculum Guide
What Your Child Will Learn
Our curriculum guide is designed to assist you in gaining an understanding of what students in Pre-K3 are taught. The curriculum is developed specifically for young learners, keeping them actively involved in the learning process, and focusing on their individual needs.
Teachers use theme based instruction, incorporating a hands-on approach in daily teaching and learning centers are an integral part of the classroom experience. They work to build an early foundation in the Word of God and Christian concepts while building a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. The Preschool staff is committed to offering a loving and nurturing educational program for each student. We hope you find this information helpful in answering your questions. For more details, we encourage you to talk to the Director or Early Education.
A Christian Education in Pre-K3
Chapel is age appropriate and the parents and families are encouraged to join us. Classes take turns sharing a song at chapel and students are awarded chapel awards. Guest speakers are invited to share.
The Bible curriculum, using age appropriate examples of Biblical truths and character qualities, is integrated into the daily activities and lessons. Each weekly lesson includes a Bible verse that supports the Biblical principles.
Topics studied include:
- The Wordless Book
- God Helps Me Grow
- God Gives Me Helpers
- God’s Promises for Me
- Heroes of the Bible
- Miracles of Jesus
Field trips and special events are also a major part of our curriculum and are coordinated with the current curriculum units. As part of units students visit the pumpkin patch and for Fire Safety Month students visit the local fire station.
Special Events offer enriching activities including grandparent’s day, Christmas chapel, and a family picnic.
