Our Classes

Preschool & Kindergarten
  • 9 am to Noon*, September through May

    Educational opportunities for “whole child development” are provided in many areas including spiritual, social, intellectual, emotional, aesthetic, and physical. A close relationship between family and school is encouraged to enhance this process.

    We believe strongly in learning through play (free play and directed play). This philosophy is used in all classes and extensively in our classes for three-year olds. Spiritual needs are met by caring Christian teachers who value each child as a special gift of God and teach and model Christian values. There are worship experiences once a month to enrich devotional life.
     
    Social needs are met in limiting class size and by working and playing in small and large groups. These varying environments provide experiences to promote genuine caring and respect for others and opportunities for development of self skills as both “leader” and “follower.”
     
    Intellectual needs are met by providing a developmentally appropriate program of activities in language arts, math, science and social studies in all classes. Each child moves at his or her own pace along a continuum of increasingly more challenging activities. We follow the curriculum of the Chesapeake Public Schools in our kindergarten class.
     
    Emotional needs are met by encouraging the child to fully develop individual talents and abilities in a loving environment where success and growth in self-confidence are fostered. Varying interactions with peers and adults add further dimension and opportunity for maturation. Aesthetic needs are met by art, music and movement experiences integrated within the curriculum in individual classrooms.
     
    Separate enrichment classes are offered in music and foreign language for all ages. A computer lab is offered in 4 and 5 year classes 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.
