Panda Classes are a preschool experience for young children age two years & six months through age three. Our goal is to help each child feel comfortable, make new friends, and learn to interact in a group setting. (Children must be 2 years old by February 1 to enroll for the fall term of the same year.)
Preschool Classes are available for children ages three through five. Our preschool classes encourage children to develop a life-long enjoyment of learning by providing a positive early-childhood classroom experience.
All students in our three through five year old Preschool classes will participate in a structured Physical Education class and Music class once each week.
Our Pre-Kindergarten class is specifically designed for preschool aged children needing a more academically challenging environment, or those who narrowly miss the state deadline for Kindergarten enrollment. Pre-Kindergarten uses Abeka-Book curriculum for four year olds.
Our Kindergarten program emphasizes a safe, secure environment, kind and courteous behavior, encouragement for each child to develop to his/her full potential, strong math and reading skills, and preparation for the first grade classroom.
We use the Abeka-Book curriculum for five-year-olds which includes Math, Phonics and Reading, Science, Social Studies and Bible Lessons.
Our Summer Fun program is for children 3, 4 or 5 years old and those who have finished Kindergarten. (Previous preschool/large group experience is required for 3 year olds, and all children must be potty trained. Each Summer Fun session meets for three consecutive weeks on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Children who attend Summer Fun will explore summer-related subjects, such as the beach, fishing, bugs, BBQ’s, watermelon and ice cream! They will also enjoy exciting learning centers, sing-along time and Bible lessons. Outdoor water fun will help them cool off during hot summer days, and fun, theme-related snacks will round out a great morning.
