The 4K curriculum integrates literacy, math, science, art and music into weekly themes. Each theme is explored and studied using books, music and art projects that are incorporated into the lessons and learning centers.
Pre-school students use the Opening the World of Learning (OWL) Texas Edition curriculum. This program integrates early literacy, math, science, social studies, and health skills. Writing is embedded throughout the day in a fun and unique way.
At the core of every activity designed for the children is the belief that children learn best through active engagement with the task and by using all their senses to explore and grow.
Our daily schedule includes:
- Whole group activities to help children gain social, academic and gross motor skills
- Independent play in centers aligned to the monthly theme
- Small group instruction to reinforce academic skills
- Daily participation in children’s chapel service.
Also, children participate in unique lessons in our Nature Trail provided by our science teacher.
