TK is a colorfully exciting bridge for those kids who need the gift of a tad more time. The extra year grows them physically socially and academically before entering the traditional school system. We lovingly nurture their confidence through this important transition.
Reading, reading, reading (with playful pointers) is a priority here. Each child is assessed for reading levels and early readers are born and grown! Watch the gears turn as their critical thinking skills improve. We plant a joyful pride as we teach phonics and sight words. Writing takes practice and we do practice! Their writing journal will be one of those pieces you keep for their high school graduation package. Art history, creative art, manipulative art…We love art!!! (And you’ll love that the mess is made here.) Our excellent staff integrates math concepts into every theme with hands-on learning. Refining motor skills is an intentional effort.
Independence is encouraged and you can capitalize on that at home as they take care of themselves, their friends and their school. We teach them to stand up for themselves, righteously and respectfully. Learning responsibility and a motivating pride helps them keep track of their own belongings and complete big-kid homework as they prepare for kinder next year.
We even build their confidence and excitement for elementary school with carpool and lunch-line practice towards the end of the year.
We love to pray together and hear them share their hearts through praises and prayers. By the end of the year some kids even choose to lead prayer time and have been enthusiastically encouraged towards a personal relationship with God.
