Cultivating the Whole Child

Mind

Academic skills are taught in an engaging and developmentally appropriate manner. Chants, songs, and rhymes are used to help students in the learning process. Hands-on, group activities, and individual work are all used in the teaching process as the children learn to be students.


Body

Research shows that physical activity helps improve academic and cognitive performance. Our K-Prep program focuses on keeping the children active through free play time during recess, active movement throughout the day in the classroom, as well as structured time in our motor lab.

The goal of the motor lab is to strengthen the children’s core muscles as well as improve coordination and balance, all important to helping children succeed as a student. Fine motor skills such as cutting and writing, are also recognized as vital to a young child’s development. These skills will help the students form good habits and progress through their school years. Our program works on developing fine motor skills with stimulating activities that are developmentally appropriate, such as playdough, tweezer and tong use, beading, lacing, clothes pin activities, and much more.

Soul

As the K-prep students are learning what it means to be a part of a group in the classroom, it is important for them to learn what is expected of them socially as well as what a virtuous life looks like. Students are taught what it means to love God and their neighbor. The student’s understanding of social and biblical expectations help them to have more meaningful relationships.

Students learn phonetic awareness, alphabet knowledge, story comprehension, an increased attention span and a broader vocabulary.
Students learn number sense and recognition, patterning, graphing, shapes, and number sequencing.
Types of lines and primary and secondary colors are taught in the K-prep classroom as well as in the Art class that is held once a week.
Students learn about the different Eras and a few composers in each era using music mapping, dreaming, and body movements to the music. The students also attend a special music class once a week
Students learn about the attributes of God through stories from the Bible, memory work, and hymns.
Students learn about the five senses, shadows, matter, water, and three Ecosystems in California: mountain, desert, and the ocean.
