Curriculum

The 4K program is filled with activity! We use the One in Christ curriculum from Concordia for religion. This is “new” for the 4K this year, so we are extra excited! Our Houghton-Mifflin Pre-K curriculum is an exciting addition to our program this year. It is based on ten themes for the year and includes language arts, math, science, social studies, and art. Each week we will have specific themes that correspond with the letter of the week. Play is also an important part of our curriculum. Here the children role-play and learn how to get along together. The following classes are offered each week: gym, library, music, and chapel. In gym, the children work on gross-motor skills and have fun! At the library, they listen to a story and check out a new book each week. Mrs. Seefeld, our music director, teaches music. The children go to a special chapel with 3K and 5K designed just for them!

The Co-Op Program

Parents are a vital part of our 4K program by being active participants through the co-op program. About once a month, a parent serves as a volunteer helper in class. This allows them to spend time in the classroom with their child and helps us keep costs down. If a parent is unable to co-op, they can opt out by paying a certain amount each semester. Co-op duties include snack set up and clean up, helping with art projects, supervising play, and walking students to child care at the end of the day.
