All of our preschool classes follow the Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence to hit learning standards across the domains. Visit their website at : Core Knowledge and download the Content and Skill Guidelines for Preschoolers for an overview. Our Bible instruction is woven throughout our day and we use Purposeful Design Bible Curriculum for that. Visit ACSI Purposeful Design for an overview. Our teachers use Alphafriends instruction for phonics. Click here for an overview of Alphafriends.
In addition, our Pre-K classes prepare for reading through readiness activities, language interaction, thinking skills, exposure to good literature, and an introduction to alphabet letters and sounds. Our arithmetic readiness focuses primarily on conceptual skills and includes patterning, graphing, measuring, estimation, and attribute studies, as well as the more traditional exposure to rote counting and set development. The learning of colors, directions, positional words, and body parts is carefully interwoven into the curriculum.
