Full Day Kindergarten

Children must be at least five years of age by September 1 to enter Kindergarten. Our Kindergarten program is a 5 full-day schedule. Children will be tested to determine Kindergarten readiness skills prior to acceptance into the Kindergarten program. It is required that students complete a year of Preschool or Pre-Kindergarten prior to entering Kindergarten. Our learning environment welcomes all students to grow, learn, and worship the Lord together. All academics are taught in accordance with a Biblical worldview from Christian curriculum such as Purposeful Design Publications and Abeka.

Bible – Purposeful Design

The Kindergarten Bible curriculum is designed for students to see God as the source of strength. Students will be encouraged to both worship and admire Him. Biblical life principles are taught in each weekly lesson. Kindergarten Bible is taught five days a week. Students learn and grow in their understanding of the Gospel from stories from the Old and New Testaments.

Language Arts – Purposeful Design

The Kindergarten Phonics, Language, and Reading program builds phonetically line upon line and precept upon precept, laying a strong foundation for emerging readers. By mid-year or earlier, students will begin to read simple words. The program also incorporates building basic sight words, high-frequency words, vocabulary, oral fluency, grammar, phonics skills, and literature studies. We understand our God is a God of communication and it is through the reading process that we will come to understand His Word, the Bible. The combined Phonics, Language, and Reading program is taught 5 days a week. By end of year, students will demonstrate a knowledge of short and long vowels, blends with consonants, reading short stories, high-frequency and sight words, vocabulary words, and grammar concepts.

Mathematics – Purposeful Design

The Kindergarten Mathematics program lays a foundation for developing both math skills and concepts. Skills are developed through hands-on learning and real-world application. Concepts are stressed through the use of manipulatives and learning through play. Children will recognize God as a God of order and reason through the application of mathematics in Creation.

Writing and Penmanship – ABEKA

The Kindergarten Penmanship Curriculum is designed to enable students to effectively communicate using the written word. Penmanship is correlated very closely with the Reading, Phonics, and Language Curriculum. Penmanship is taught the entire year. By end of year, students will demonstrate knowledge of the proper formation of all upper- and lower-case letters, printing their first and last names, and writing simple sentences using phonics skills.

Social Studies/ Science – ABEKA

Children will learn and explore the community and the world around us that God has created.
