Other subjects taught The ABeka curriculum is taught in all of preschool classes. ABeka is a phonics based curriculum where our students learn to recognize letters and letter sounds. In our 4-year-old program students learn to read three letter words by the end of the school year. In our Kindergarten class, students will learn to read sentences and short stories containing one and two vowel words and special sounds.

From the Director:

Our first priority is to make each child feel safe and loved every day. Our preschool is a structured environment where they will learn and grow academically. However, we want to make these first years of school a fun and enjoyable time where they will learn to love school.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Because we believe that the BIBLE is true, it is our desire to teach children about the great God of Heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ, who loves them dearly. We will teach them His book, the Bible. We also believe that CHARACTER matters! We will train these young lives in honesty, faithfulness, obedience, submission, kindness, forgiveness, and servant hood...basic Biblical character traits. We believe that EDUCATION is important. It provides a foundation of knowledge, insight and wisdom for a godly life. We will promote the development of your child spiritually, intellectually, socially and physically within the Biblical framework. Within this context, we are committed to providing a safe, fun and educationally sound atmosphere that will expose each child to excellent learning opportunities and experiences. Your child will be loved and respected. We will work closely with parents to produce knowledgeable and wise children who will glorify God.
The Preschool's objectives are to develop in the child the proper attitudes, ideals, habits, knowledge and skills that are the necessary foundation for a productive and godly life.
