pklogoPhilosophy of Education

We believe all children want to learn and can learn in a loving, secure environment. We provide a Christian learning classroom that is non-sectarian.

We teach Bible stories and songs about Jesus Christ. We teach letters, writing, colors, numbers and shapes throughout the units of study. We believe children should be given the opportunity to express themselves through art, music, literature and drama.  Experience helps a child become confident in new situations.

Tuition
The preschool program is tuition-based.  The first payment is a double payment for September and June.  Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments. Students may choose to attend 1-5 days a week. Tuition is paid monthly and due on the 1st of the month and considered late after the 5th of the month.  A $20 late fee is added to the account after the 5th.

We strive to keep tuition as low as possible, so we depend on fundraisers to add the additional funds needed to keep our budget in the black.  Family involvement in fundraisers is requested and appreciated for optimal success.

Student Ages & Attendance
2 year old class size is limited to 10 students with 2 teachers and students attend 9:15-11:45.

Four Year-Old/Universal Pre-K Classes
We do accept children that have applied and been accepted into the UPK program in Hilton Schools. However, your child does not have to be accepted into the UPK program to attend our classes.   Our 4 year old/UPK classes are 9:00am-12:00pm Monday through Friday.

The children will practice writing their names, letters of the alphabet, counting, listening for beginning sounds, rhyming, classifying, and following patterns. We learn to sing songs and we present parent programs. Parent/Teacher Conferences in February are arranged to give parents the materials gathered that demonstrate your child’s readiness for kindergarten. Standardized testing is used in each class to show progress being made.

Some of the units studied by this class are: dinosaurs, community helpers, plants and seeds, famous American people, solar system, holiday traditions around the world, birds, transportation,  insects, fire safety, personal safety, Native American culture, day and night, pets, body systems and rodeo. Letters and sounds, math skills and pre-reading skills are stressed.
