Why Monday, Tuesday, Thursday instead of Monday, Wednesday, Friday?
*This maximizes the number of school days during short weeks. We will gain 4-5 class days.
*This gives families an opportunity to leave earlier for the weekend.
4 to 5 year olds: Monday through Friday (5 days) from 8:30-11:30.
Description: This is a class for fours and fives who plan on attending Kindergarten the following fall. Children will continue learning school readiness concepts and Biblical principles through lessons and play. More focus is given on number and letter recognition and handwriting skills. Much attention is given to cutting & pasting and drawing. Children will be learning about calendar time, story time and other social skills that will be needed to get them ready for Kindergarten.
Requirements: Must be 4 by Aug. 31.
Fees: $160 per month, $50 registration fee, $35 per month "Before Care" fee
Preschool is typically a child’s first experience with “school” and it should be a positive, enjoyable one! I believe a child should not be pushed beyond what they are ready for, so correct placement is very important! If you need guidance deciding which class is best for your child, please contact me.
ELC curriculum is taught in a variety of ways to meet South Dakota state developmental goals. Children are encouraged to meet the goals, but each child will progress at their own developmental rate. Our curriculum has Bible based principles integrated into classroom lessons.
