2.5 year-old program
The program for our youngest students focuses on learning through play. The alphabet, colors, and shapes are introduced through hands-on activities and crafts. At this age, there is an added focus on social and emotional development. This class is a great first step into preschool as it gives children a chance to learn transitioning and to develop self-help skills in a loving and nurturing environment. Your child does not need to be potty-trained for this class.

Our preschool curriculum is designed to help children learn good social skills and to stimulate their intellectual abilities, preparing them for kindergarten. We provide children with a variety of toys, materials, and activities to foster their creativity and practice problem-solving skills. Our teachers communicate and listen carefully to children’s responses. Small class sizes allow us to provide lots of individual care and attention. We understand that each child is unique and develops at his or her own pace.
Children in our preschool program learn about biblical principles. They learn to respect others, appreciate the world in which they live, and establish self-confidence. Our school provides a strong foundation on which to build their academic and spiritual future.
