The five-year-old kindergarten program is designed to prepare the child not only mentally, but socially and spiritually for first-grade level work. Our kindergarten lays a strong foundation, and the student learns many of the basic learning skills which will go with him throughout the rest of his life. Utilizing an intensive phonics approach, students learn to read simple sentences. Students also develop writing skills as the cursive alphabet is presented and practiced. Number skills are developed as students are exposed to addition, subtraction, time, and money. Science, health, and social studies enhance the cognitive and social development of the students, and daily Bible stories help develop godly character traits. The culmination of the kindergarten year is celebrated with a special graduation ceremony in the spring. Parents are amazed at the accomplishments of students who are taught in a caring, wholesome, teacher-directed classroom setting.
