From the Director:
The PreKindergarten program at WCCS is committed to providing a high-quality developmentally appropriate program for children ages three to five in partnership with their parents. Recognizing each child is a unique valuable creation of God, our goal is to lay the foundation for later learning by providing concrete experiences where children take in information perceptually as they manipulate objects and observe relationships in their environment. Teachers implement direct and indirect instruction in an integrated curriculum using concrete activities. Believing all truth originates in God, the Bible is central to helping children develop their personality and learn about their world, as they are encouraged to reach their full potential in Him. Being intimately acquainted with the maturational process of this age group, teachers help each child grow in all areas of development: emotionally/spiritually, cognitively, socially, and physically. As we strive to excite children about learning, teachers provide activities that require children to develop skills rather than simply use them. Our program stresses oral language development, listening skills, and fine and gross motor activities with sensitivity to the child's emerging readiness for paper-pencil work. We believe this developmental program provides an environment where children begin to develop their personalities based on a clear understanding and acceptance of themselves as unique creations in the image of God.
