Kindergarten

Our goals in Kindergarten are to help kids recognize numbers up to one hundred, begin telling time, do basic addition and subtraction, and acquire a strong phonics foundation for reading. By winter, most children will be sounding out words and reading sentences. We also cultivate a love for God and the assurance that God loves them.

HALF DAY/FULL DAY OPTIONS:  Now Offering “Step Into Kindergarten,” an option for five year old students who will either move into first grade the following year, OR move into all-day Kindergarten the following year. You may choose the half day option for all of the year, or transition to full day at any point. Located at our Preschool campus on E. Kellogg Road, this class is also a good option for a family who has both preschool and kindergarten students.
