Curriculum

Chapel

Our students come together every other week for a 20-30 minute chapel time.  We sing songs of worship, focus on a Bible story, work on learning Bible verses, and pray together.  

Our theme for 2016-2017 is Fruits of the Spirit. We will be focusing on a different “fruit” each month as we learn about love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, kindness, faith and self control.

Science

Each classroom will participate in science activities. We spend time learning about the amazing world that God created.  The students get to participate in fun experiments and learn how science can be fun!

Music

Throughout the year, our students get to participate in music.  In addition to learning simple rhythms, our students will have the opportunity to play a variety of musical instruments, including hand bells.

Lunch Bunch

Our Lunch Bunch program is offered as a one-hour extension of our regular classroom time.  Students bring a packed lunch and get to participate in a special class.  Class themes will include:  music, art, sports, cooking, games and more.

Field Trips

Field trips are an exciting part of the year for our preschoolers! Students are transported and accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other family member.  Field trips planned for 2016 / 2017 include The Orchard Company.
