At Christian Fellowship Pre-Kindergarten, we are committed to the Christian Fellowship School mission of partnering with parents to provide quality Christian education to prepare students for a lifetime of Christian service. This means we will work with parents and students in a personal and professional manner that demonstrates Christ-like love, respect, and kindness. We will provide an academic program that is of a high quality, age appropriate, makes learning enjoyable, and which teaches Biblical truths and Christian values in a safe and nurturing environment. Our instructional goals are designed to train students in three primary areas: Knowledge, Faith, and Character.
We recognize that every child is fearfully and wonderfully made (Ps. 139:14). Therefore, every child requires learning activities and instruction that address his or her unique needs, talents, and gifts. To maximize learning, we follow a structured, daily routine that addresses multiple learning styles and student interests. We make every effort to provide an environment that allows students to develop trusting relationships with teachers and peers, so that as we introduce new activities and skills, students have the confidence to take learning risks and make choices that opens doors to new and exciting learning experiences.
A significant aspect of any pre-kindergarten program is to provide a foundation for personal and social development. Using scriptural truths and Biblical principles, teachers at Christian Fellowship Pre-K gently and lovingly guide students to grow in sharing, serving, showing kindness, and conflict resolution. It is emphasized to students that while God exhorts us to reflect His goodness by our good conduct and deeds, He loves us and accepts us because we belong to Him, not because of our behavior.
To ensure a quality academic program, our Pre-K uses the Houghton-Mifflin-Harcourt “Splash into Pre-K” curriculum, as well as ABEKA handwriting and Bible curricula. Students also experience several educational field trips to local groceries, orchards, etc., so they are learning both in and outside of the classroom. The curriculum is supplemented with seasonal themes and teacher created materials to extend, target, challenge and develop a thorough scope and sequence of learning, which includes:
Letters, Sounds, Word Work and Writing
Numbers and Counting
Other Mathematical Concepts
Fine Arts and Music
Play Based Learning
Social Studies and Science
Social Emotional Development
Fine and Gross Motor Development
Field Trip and Special Events
