  • 4 Year Old Classes

    The main goals of PK4 classes are to help children develop confidence to be independent workers and cooperative, helpful friends.  Kindergarten readiness skills are an integral part of the day filled with investigation, exploration, and discovery. Teachers individualize instruction, using a variety of teaching techniques to help children develop critical thinking skills and a thirst for learning.  Through directed play and free play activities, teachers encourage children to reach developmental milestones that will help them succeed in all areas of life.

    We offer three classes:

    Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9 am – Noon:  
    Two classes with 16 students each.

    Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday/Friday 9 am-Noon:  
    One class with 16 students

    Separate enrichment classes are offered in music and foreign language. A computer lab is offered to introduce the technical expertise necessary in the future and provide a different venue of skill development and creativity.

    Physical needs are met by daily play on a safe, well-equipped playground and through classroom activities. 

    Children’s spiritual needs will be met by daily devotions, prayers and incorporation of God into daily discussions.
