Teaching pre-k presents challenges that are unique in many ways. As children enter school, they come with varying degrees of readiness, and their parents come with varied expectations of what will be accomplished in a year. That is why we have designed a program that is developmentally appropriate for the students in our classrooms.

7:30am – 9:00am Pre Care
9:00am – 12:00pm Pre–K  this includes circle time,  inside and outside choice times, snack, weekly community prayer, and daily pray time. There is usually a secular theme and a religious theme that the children study during this time for example: the solar system and the story of creation.
12:00pm –12:30pm Lunch
12:30pm – 2:00pm Circle time, large motor, fine motor, Handwriting Without Tears, and enrichments.
2:00pm – 5:00 pm Extended Care – this includes circle times, inside and outside choices, snack, and games.

Afternoon Extended Child Care

The afternoon extended child care program runs from 2:00pm to 5:00 p.m.   During the extended care program, your child will get more one-one interaction with the teachers and meet new friends from the other classrooms. Children may be enrolled for all or part of the afternoon on the days that they are scheduled to attend.  Drop-in care for registered students is available only when space permits.  Please contact the teacher for space availability.  Children staying for lunch need to bring their own lunch, which will be refrigerated.
