Advent's prekindergarten program is designed to lay the foundation for a successful kindergarten experience with the specific expectations of Advent's kindergarten program in mind. Daily schedule options include 3 hour class (State Funded VPK program), 5 hour class, or 7 1/2 hour class. All classes qualify for state VPK voucher. Children must be four years old on or before September 1, and able to use the toilet independently.
Our classroom setting has a variety of schedules. Classroom activities focus, as always, on age appropriate, process not product experiences. Letters and numbers are taught using multi-sensory activities to provide opportunities for children to engage in learning in a variety of ways. Science experiments and social studies units prepare students for our kindergarten curriculum. Children continue to develop social skills as they communicate with their peers and adults and work together on group projects. Language and vocabulary development are again stressed on this level with songs, games and finger plays.
The daily schedule includes "circle time," small group time, Jesus time, art experiences, story time, stories from the Bible, indoor and outdoor play time. Specialty classes include music, physical education, Spanish, computer, lively arts, and early literacy programs for full day students. Prekindergarten children attend Chapel every Friday. The prekindergarten year ends with a celebration of the special time we have shared with the children.
Parents supply lunch for their prekindergarten children. Hot lunch is available at an additional cost.
