About the preschool

3 Year Olds

Our three year old classes meet Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Children must be three years old by August 15 of that school year. Parents can choose two, three, or four days.

Three years olds learn their ABC’s by sight and their numbers to 20 by site.

Three year olds use the Alpha Tales curriculum to teach the ABC’s. Alpha Tales are humorous stories designed to help young children recognize letters and the sounds they make.  The stories lay the foundation for reading success using kid-pleasing books—one for each letter of the alphabet.

We also offer Spanish class twice a week, weekly chapel, and various other “special” days for 3-4 and Kindergarten Transition Class.

4 Year Olds

Children should be four by August 15 of that school year.

Four year olds meet Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Parents can choose two, three, or four days for their child.

The four year old class is designed to prepare your child in all areas for kindergarten.  Movement music, creative art, hands-on science, and math are part of our weekly routine.  We have chosen Frog Street Press and Scholastic ABC Sing Along curriculum as part of our alphabet, number, shape, and color recognition.

In addition, worksheets are used for classifying, sequencing, matching, and listening to follow direction skills.  Special attention will be given to children on alphabet letter formation and printing their name.

Our curriculum involves music listening activity lessons designed to help young children recognize letter and phonic sounds which lay the foundation for reading success.

We also offer Spanish class twice a week, weekly chapel, and “special” days for 3-4 and Kindergarten Transition Class.

Kindergarten Transition Class

We have four year old classes and a Kindergarten Transitional class. Children should be four by August 15 of that school year.

The Kindergart Transitional classes meet Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  Parents can pick three days (M/T/TH) or four days (M-TH).

We use the Macmillan/McGraw-Hill Letterbook series to review the children to letter and sound correspondence in a small group environment for our Kindergarten Transition Class.

Your child will work on the following concepts throughout the year: upper/lower case formation of alphabet, sound discrimination of letters, repetition of sound patterns, writing their name, blending three letter phonetic words/word families, dividing words into syllables, sounding out small words and copying them, hand/eye coordination-positioning letter, gradual accumulation of about 50 phonetic words and ability to listen to stories/answer questions and retell events.  There will be focus on many sight words throughout the year to prepare them for kindergarten.

We also offer Spanish class twice a week, weekly chapel, and various other “special” days for 3-4 and Kindergarten Transition Class.
