Our goal is to help children develop the skills necessary to succeed in kindergarten. These include social/emotional, motor, language development, and cognitive skills. Skills are addressed through learning games, art, planned activities, thematic units, and play. Below is a typical daily schedule.
9:00- 9:15 Prayer/weather/calendar/Weekly Theme
9:15-10:00 Self-selected activities at learning centers
10:00-10:20 Pick up and Snack
10:20-10:30 Quiet self-selected book time
10:30-10:45 Circle time/stories, songs, games, finger plays
10:45-11:00 Outdoor playtime or concentration areas (bad weather)
11:00-11:30 Bible Story, bible truth, and songs, finger plays
The schedule is made to be flexible in order to best meet the specific needs of the children. Each class has time for large motor development and gym activities as part of their daily schedule. The children are also taken to music class two days a week. This is supplemental to the large motor activites and music that is planned in the classroom.
