Kinder Ready: 5-years old

school7

The Kinder-Ready program is for children who are 5-years old by December 31st.  The main purpose of the Kinder-Ready program is to provide additional time for the young five-year old and the older 4-year old to refine their Kindergarten Readiness Skills.  We believe that a child who begins school when they are developmentally ready is more likely to have a successful education moving forward.  The extra time spent in the classroom allows the children to grow emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually.  This foundational time is so important that we believe we need this option for our students who could benefit from one more formative year before Kindergarten.  The following lists some of the skills your child will learn in the Kinder-Ready classroom:

  • Identify Upper and Lower Case Letters
  • Identify Letter Sounds
  • Learn their Telephone Number and Address
  • Know their Birth Date
  • Name and Classify Shapes
  • Pattern and Identify Sets
  • Recognize and Count Numbers to 20
  • Write First and Last Name
  • Name the Days of the Week and Months of the Year
  • Sequence Pictures to Tell a Story
  • Begin Developing a Sight Vocabulary
  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Well-being and Motor Development
  • Approaches Toward Learning
  • Language and Literacy Development

Our Kinder-Ready program not only reinforces basic preschool skills but further develops them so that each child is ready to take the next step in their education.  We offer a wide variety of hands-on centers where children can play and learn, both individually and in small groups.  We also address academic readiness by introducing your child to elements of language arts, math, science and social studies.  The teachers share their faith, lead the children in prayer and talk plainly about their relationship with God.  Children will have the opportunity to express their faith throughout the school day and attend chapel once each week led by our pastor, music director, and school director.
