Pre-K classes teach early learners how God would have them socialize with others. They learn how to listen and learn, how to communicate well, and how to care for themselves. They engage in the pursuit of learning and play that is age appropriate while building a firm foundation in academics with an emphasis on vocabulary. Classes in Spanish, Music, and Art enrich the learning experience along with physical education classes and recesses that serve to develop physical agility and strength.
Kindergarten teachers seek to build the supporting pillars for learning. Students are led to explore math through the use of concrete manipulatives. They learn to identify numbers, write numbers, and understand 1 to 1 correspondence. Students develop phonemic awareness, decoding, end coding skills and become familiar with sight words.
Age appropriate comprehension skills and vocabulary skills are enhanced. Students attend classes in Spanish, Art, and Music. Structured physical education classes and recesses serve to develop physical agility and strength.
