Our HALF DAY program is available from 8:00 to 1:00 Monday through Friday. You can choose which days, and how many days each week you would like to sign up for. The children have a 2.5 hour phonics based preschool class each morning and a variety of play activities throughout the day. A morning snack and a hot lunch are provided. See the typical daily schedule below for an outline of our half day program.

Curriculum

We are an accredited preschool using a phonics based curriculum created by “Accelerated Christian Education” that introduces a new letter of the alphabet each week. Along with each letter, the children will learn about an animal that begins with that sound. Through music, stories, crafts, games, Bible stories, character traits and baking the children will learn the sounds each of the letters make and develop a curiosity for learning more. They will also learn numbers, colors, shapes, self help skills, gross and fine motor skills, tracing, coloring, cutting, classroom etiquette, calendar details, opposites, socialization, and manners. The children will have an opportunity to visit our playgrounds, gymnasiums, moonwalk, and indoor playland for exercise and to develop coordination. Our goal is to make school a fun environment in which children are able to learn age appropriate skills, and work well with others.
