BASIC PROGRAM INFORMATION
It is our belief that a preschool experience based on God’s love, grace and forgiveness will provide a child with a lasting spiritual foundation, develop self-esteem and an appreciation and respect for themselves and others. The child who has the opportunity to know God will grow and prosper, become a good citizen, maintain a Christian life and enrich the lives of others.
Our curriculum includes many socialization opportunities; familiarization with bible stories and songs; the development of gross and fine motor skills; the study of colors, numbers, shapes, letters and letter sounds. Furthermore, our curriculum includes supervised games, educational field trips, chapel and the foundational sharing of Jesus’ love every day.
Our entire curriculum and program is designed to prepare your child, very specifically, for their eventual participation in a full-day kindergarten experience. Care and attention will be applied to your child’s developmental needs and we firmly believe they will benefit from what we have to offer. Our program currently makes use of the One in Christ curriculum.

For most 3 year olds preschool is their very first experience stepping out on their own. We understand this experience can be emotional for both child and parent which is why one of our main curriculum goals is to make this separation a positive experience. We focus on socialization – sharing, verbalizing wants and needs, and making new friends. We also introduce basic foundational academic principals such as letter recognition and sounds, numbers, shapes and colors.
To give children an appreciation of seasons we plan special holiday celebrations which include a Thanksgiving Day Feast, Birthday Party for Christ, Valentine’s Day, Easter Egg Hunt, a Mother’s Tea, and an End of the Year Picnic. In order to expand their experience all of the children enjoy a field trip to the Salem Church Library mid way through the school year.
In an effort to maintain close one on one contact we limit our class size to 14 students. Our current staffing standards are maintained at one teacher and one teacher’s aide per class.
Our primary goal for your 4-year old is to prepare them for Kindergarten. There are several planned field trips and special activities focused on expanding their socialization habits and broadening their academic exposure. We expand their academic curriculum to include advanced letter and word recognition, writing, numbers and counting.
Your child will enjoy some additional experiences including a monthly Chapel service in the Sanctuary with the Pastor or Vicar, a fire drill and visit from the Fire Department, and a Graduation Ceremony and reception.
