Faith Christian School is excited to offer both PreK and Kindergarten programs. Children who turn 4 by Sept.1 will be eligible for the PreK program, and children who turn 5 by Sept. 1 will be eligible for Kindergarten. We are very excited about the advantages of each of these programs. Read further to learn more about each program and the advantages they hold for your child.
The PreK program is designed as an introduction to school for the four-year-old child who demonstrates basic readiness for school but is too young to embark on the formal years of education beginning with Kindergarten, or for students that simply need another year of preparation before beginning the more advanced Kindergarten program. PreK students will learn phonics, math, and Bible, as well as art, music, and gym. Core content will be presented in the mornings, when students are freshest. The afternoons will contain some review but will also develop motor skills, the arts, and some basic science and social studies.
Due to the scope and sequence of the PreK and K curricula, it is the expectation that PreK students will transition to the Kindergarten classroom for the school year culminating in promotion to the 1st grade class.
The number of PreK spots is limited to create a balanced learning environment in the PreK/ K classrooms.
- Full Day: Our full-day students begin the day with us at 8:00. (Supervision is provided beginning at 7:40 a.m.) Core subjects are generally taught in the morning with various “special” classes given throughout the week. After lunch, students have a short rest time before continuing with their day.
- Half-day: Our half-day students begin the day with us at 8:00 and depart at lunchtime (11:30). Core subjects are generally taught before lunch, but the pace of the Kindergarten curriculum may require some additional work with parents at home. Half-day students participate in the “special” classes that are offered before lunch.
- We hold our students to a high standard and encourage them in whatever ways possible to work to their highest God-given potential. Our classroom sizes keep the student-to-teacher ratio low. This provides our teachers the opportunity to give a lot of one-on-one attention and individualized teaching to each student. Our teachers are experienced, creative, and loving, and work hard to make learning fun!
- Students attend a chapel service every week, and parents are welcome to attend these services. Chapel includes a time of music, and a speaker shares from God’s Word (often based on the year’s theme verse).
- Parents play a vital role in our school as they volunteer in the classroom, help with fundraisers, chaperone field trips, help with playground and lunchroom supervision, and serve in the office.
