Our focus is on building a strong foundation for success by helping our students to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Classroom Philosophy

Welcome to Kindergarten! This is such an amazing time for children—it is a transition to becoming a “big” kid! In our classroom, we use each child’s natural curiosity and excitement to lay the groundwork for a love of learning and instill community engagement. We’re so excited to spend the year with your child!

Program

Kindergarten is offered half-day, 8:45 am until 12:45 pm, Monday through Friday. The class offers a Christian environment with daily devotions, and a curriculum based on the NC Common Core Standards, www.ncpublicschools.org. Our reading program also includes the Balanced Literacy Model “4 Blocks” in accordance with the standards and we add phonics with Saxon Phonics and Spelling and Saxon Math at the Kindergarten level. The same primary writing program, by Lucy Calkins, offered in the public schools is incorporated at the Kindergarten and can be reviewed at www.unitsofstudy.com. In addition, we offer Spanish, Music, field trips, and weekly Physical Education.
