The King’s Academy Preschool utilizes research driven, teacher created curriculum, which reflects the Early Learning Standards. The King’s Academy Preschool also develops curriculum to teach the whole child. This includes their social and emotional as well as spiritual development. In all preschool classes, teaching comes from a Biblical worldview. Biblical truths and the love of Jesus are woven into all that is done each day.
Our two-year-old program focuses on the development of self-regulation and self-help skills. Special attention is given to helping children identify and communicate their emotions and to helping children communicate their overall needs. Foundational academic skills are introduced to children through play-based activities. Many opportunities are provided to allow children to explore and investigate their environment and interact with nurturing caregivers who are responsive to their needs.
Our three-year-old program is designed specifically to allow children to build on the foundational skills established in the two-year-old program. Greater structure is introduced to the children’s routine, daily activities, and overall schedule. Academic concepts are introduced in the areas of Language and Literacy, Mathematical Thinking, Scientific Inquiry, and Creative Expression through the Arts. Children are taught and encouraged to be respectful, productive citizens in their classroom community.
Our four-year-old program is an academically rigorous program designed to prepare children for success in kindergarten and beyond. Academic instruction is provided in the areas of Language and Literacy, Mathematical Thinking, Scientific Inquiry, and Creative Expression through the Arts. Children are expected to work independently at times; and they are expected to participate as respectful, contributing members of their classroom community. Academic and self-help skills are honed at this level to equip young children with the skills needed to successfully navigate the rigor of kindergarten.
