Pre-Kindergarten Overview (K4)
Education at the early childhood level is a time where students take their first steps in learning to think for themselves, make decisions, work toward their own solutions and express their own ideas and feelings. It is also a time during which their faith can blossom and grow when surrounded by a community of loving teachers who nurture their God-given curiosity and who model Christ’s love.
Kindergarten at Liberty Christian School consists of separate programs for four- and five-year-olds. Each program offers developmentally appropriate learning experiences to meet student needs in all domains (language, cognitive, physical and social/emotional) in a loving and stimulating environment. Classes incorporate sound educational curriculum with plenty of experiential play to keep the kindergarten student motivated to learn and develop. In addition, students are challenged to develop a deeper awareness that they are image bearers of the God who loves them.
Kindergarten 4 (K4)
This kindergarten preparatory program for four-year-olds is designed to meet the needs of its students academically while providing the social/emotional aspect that is unique to students in this age range. A kindergarten-level curriculum is used that aligns with our K5 curriculum, allowing for a smooth transitions for students moving from one level to the next.
K4 Program Quick Facts:
Class size. To best meet student needs, enrollment is limited to 12 students, with one teacher and one aide.
Half day or full day offered. As a parent, you have a choice. The basic academic program is half-day; however, you may choose to enroll your child in a full-day program where your child will be exposed to additional play as well as developmental activities that reinforce the lessons covered during the academic program.
Kindergarten learning and play extends beyond the school’s doors. A multi-level state-of-the-art playground structure awaits right outside the kindergarten door, ensuring a wide variety of fun and excitement. In addition, an inviting amphitheater resides nearby that offers an ideal venue for outdoor classroom experiences.
“Because children grow at different rates in different areas, our program is unique because it’s designed to meet children where they are in this process. Several years ago I had a K4 student who was already reading fluently. He was able to go to the K5 reading class but he spent the rest of his day in my classroom where he was able to develop socially and emotionally.
