Our preschool program was started in 1999. We offer engaging Bible lessons, songs, and field trips as part of your child’s preschool learning experience. All children have playtime and snacks (provided by parents) during their day.
There is much to be proud of with the students’ achievements–both in academic and social gains! Most of our four- and five-year-old kids are reading many words by the end of the school year.
Preschool is available for older three-and four-year-old children. It follows an academic and social curriculum.
PCCS offers the following preschool classes:
Two Days per Week (six hours weekly)
Children must be age 3 by August 1st to enter into this program.
Three Day per Week (nine hours weekly)
Children must be age 4 by August 1st. Students will be ready for kindergarten the next year.
Five Days per Week
Children must be age 4 by August 1st. Students will be ready for kindergarten the next year. This is the same curriculum as the three-day-per-week program, adding two extra days of enrichment.
NOTE: All preschool students must be toilet-trained. The preschool calendar will follow the school’s academic calendar. Therefore, the total number of days and hours may be affected by days off from school due to vacations and other breaks approved by the School Board.
Phonics, Reading, and Math
Preschool uses the ABeka curriculum. This is a solid curriculum that incorporates Christian values. Music, art, and environmental studies are incorporated into the curriculum daily.
Biblical values are taught by stories and discussion. The curriculum may be supplemented at the teachers’ or the administrator’s discretion if deemed appropriate or advisable.
Two Days per Week Classes
The students will begin learning letters, letter sounds, numbers, and number concepts.
Three Days per Week Classes
Students will expand their learning to include letter blends and will begin sounding out words by the end of the year.
Preschool students are taught to be obedient. A reminder of appropriate behavior is usually all that will be required. On occasions when a reminder is not enough, the child will be given an appropriate length of “time out.” If a student is substantially and/or continuously disruptive, deliberately disobedient, or violent, and/or aggressive, he or she will be removed from the classroom. Parents will be notified if it is necessary to remove students from the classroom or play area.
