Christian kindergarten - a solid foundation
Christian kindergarten is a great preparation time for your child. It is important to have great balance in their lives. While the structure is important for their kindergarten Christian education, it is just as important to have quality time for children to be creative, explore, and do activities with parents at home. We want to partner with you in laying a firm foundation for the future academic success of your child. The time spent with your children is a precious gift! The joy of learning together will create a life long memory. We also know that sometimes it is a hard task….let us do the hard things and it gives you more time to enjoy the things that you enjoy doing with your children.
Kindergarten does not commence for all children at the same age. Age is only a number on the calendar. Maturity levels, academic readiness, and the child’s eagerness all play a part in when the right time is for your child. Some kindergarten class students are 4, others 5 or 6. We place students where they fit best. Some students are at one level for reading/phonics and another level at math. Maintaining self-esteem is an essential goal for kindergarten which aids success all through school. Again, we recognize that all children advance at different speeds. We are able to customize what is best for your child and your family.
A good kindergarten program
Some parents wonder what is a good kindergarten program. Kindergarten is essential to develop learning through problem-solving, build emotional confidence, gain study skills that will benefit them all the way through their education, cooperation and leads to organizational development that is essential for all students. This is also a perfect time to attach themselves to the love of learning by sparking their curiosity and exploring the world around them. This is also the best time to gain the love of reading that will bring them joy over a lifetime!
Please also note that NOTHING kills the joy of learning quicker than if your child is bored in school. If your child is kindergarten age but needs a higher level, it can be accomplished with personalized education levels!
