3 and 4-year-olds
Thank you for your interest in the PreK3 and PreK4 program at Hope Christian Academy. PreK3 and PreK4 stands for three and four year old pre-kindergarten program. While this is a "pre-school" program, we want to stress that it is an academic pre-kindergarten program designed to prepare three and four year old children for their kindergarten enrollment. Your child must have turned three or four years old by September 1 of the year they attend, and must be completely toilet-trained.
In PreK3, students will learn to recognize colors and shapes. They will start to work on learning the letters of the alphabet and numbers 1-15. Students will develop skills such as gluing and coloring during craft time. There will be stories, music, snack, and playtime. During thematic units, students will learn more about God's world around them.
In PreK4, students will learn to recognize and write the letters of the alphabet, say the sound each letter makes, recognize and write the numbers 1-20, and work on counting to 100. Daily and weekly schedules include Bible stories, memorizing verses, penmanship, math, music, art, snack, and playtime. Students will also work on learning to read simple words using the phonics that they learn throughout the year. They'll have seasonal parties, field trips, and special guests that will help them learn more about the life they live.
Thank you for your interest in the PreKindergarten program at Hope Christian Academy! We would love to work with you in educating your child.
Sincerely for Christ-like kids,
