Our Preschool curriculum is thematic in nature and faith based. We present it with a multi-sensory, multi-level, hands-on approach in an age appropriate manner. We use several resources for curriculum development, including Handwriting Without Tears, Get Set for School and Cross Connections for Early Learners. Our curriculum has been developed based on guidelines defined by the Virginia Department of Education and the US Department of Health and Human Services Early Childhood Head-Start Task Force. Rather spending most of their time doing book work, our students engage in activities designed to help them develop emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, and academically. Our goal is to nurture the natural link between play, development, and learning.
Our Kindergarten program, which is taught by a degreed teacher, offers comprehensive, Christian curriculum in a caring atmosphere. Maintaining a small class size of 12 students with 2 teachers, allows each students to receive the individual attention they need as they start their elementary education. The program utilizes a mixture of Bob Jones University Press, Abeka, and ASCI curriculum as well as hands on learning activities. To round out the children’s education, enrichment courses including music, art, PE, chapel, and library are also taught weekly to our kindergarten students.
We provide small class sizes with a maximum of 12 children per class. This allows us to provide every child with the optimal care and attention he or she needs. We maintain a 6:1 ratio which exceeds the requirements for the state of Virginia.
