Preschool, Ages 3 & 4

 

News and information about our Preschool Class:

We are located in building 1.  There is a sign above the door that says “Preschool.”

Preschool meets:

3 year olds – Tuesdays & Thursdays  8:30 to 11:15 am.

4 year olds – Monday, Wednesday & Friday  8:30 to 11:15 am.

Students bring a snack each day to eat during our snack time, and once a week one person brings a snack to share with the rest of the class.  (Nut free, please)

We take many fieldtrips during the year, study a different science unit each month, and learn social skills along with academic ones.  Some major academic skills that we work on are learning the alphabet, shapes, colors, and numbers.  We also learn a Bible story each week and have a Bible verse we memorize each month.

We Participated in the Science Fair

Preschool went roller skating, at the Burlington Skating Rink, with the rest of the school and had a blast!       

  Taking pictures was difficult with the low light and everyone moving so fast, but here is what I could get.
