The nurturing, safe, and secure environment is the perfect classroom setting to engage young minds in the early learning fundamentals they'll need as a foundation to learning. The preschool program encompasses a variety of readiness experiences to foster and promote social, emotional, spiritual, physical and intellectual development of young children. Planned instruction includes play-based learning, projects, exploration, centers, and teacher directed lessons. Educational emphasis will consist of prayer/religion, calendar time, reading readiness-Phonics Soup sounds/letter recognition, snack/socialization, and math readiness. Each student is treated as an individual person and is allowed to progress at his/her own rate.
