Preschool

General Info & Resources

Our Preschool program creates an environment committed to nurturing children academically, emotionally, and spiritually. Our students are excited to learn, anchored in their faith, and have been given the opportunity to develop strong social skills.

Blessings Room (Infants)

Coming soon….

Thriving 3s Room (Traditional 3-year-old class)

Our Thriving 3s Room provides an introduction to academics with an emphasis on socialization and spiritual development. It’s here where children learn the mechanics of school and successful interaction with peers.  At this age children are given many first experiences at following group directions, socializing with peers, and exploring materials in a hands-on setting.  Preschool students are involved in a balanced and enriching program helping them to learn a wide range of skills and concepts prior to our more academic Pre-K program.

Pre-Kindergarten-PLUS Room (Pre-K/TK Hybrid)

Our Pre-K classroom provides a nurturing, loving Christ-centered environment. We provide a daily Bible time and also surround the students with loving Christian people who live their faith through interactions with the students, each other, and the parents. We encourage exploration and interaction with other children and provide many pre-reading and pre-math activities. In order to interface with our day school program, we use the Saxon preschool materials which emphasize Kindergarten readiness.
