early childhood

(Pre-K 3 – K)

the school day

The Early Childhood Classroom is designed for the 3-6 year old student and is divided into the following curricular areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, and Language Arts. The materials in each area are vibrant and carefully displayed in a deliberate sequence and order.  The lessons attract students’ attention and allow them to practice order, coordination, concentration, and independence. The multi age classroom allows for the older children to teach and mentor the younger students. It’s a natural progression of socialization that provides beautiful leadership possibilities.  The younger students learn seamlessly with their older peers.

The child arrives in their classroom between 8:25-8:40. They greet their teacher at the door and is able to organize their belongings in their cubby. The student is encouraged to get a book or work on a quiet lesson as they wait for other classmates to arrive.

“Circle Time” is a community meeting for our younger students, where specific concepts are being enforced with multi-sensorial approach. Music, drama, rhymes are used to practice classroom concepts. Students are then dismissed to work on lessons. They are presented new lessons either individually or in small groups, or encouraged to practice previous ones.

There is a mid-morning break for snack and recess. Children practice lessons in grace and courtesy skills for snack, and lunch and are encouraged to play, socialize, imagine, build and have fun during recess. The Pre K 3 students are either dismissed to their parents at 11:30am or stay at school for extra programming.  Lunch is in the classroom in the mid-day. The Pre K4 and Pre K 5 continue to work on lessons in the afternoon. There is a midafternoon recess and dismissal for PreK4 is 2pm and the Kindergarten students are dismissed at 3pm.

8:30AM-3:00PM

Sacred Studies and Music, are taught weekly to all early childhood students to enhance our curriculum. Everyone goes to our chapel service Wednesday at 9am.  Kindergarten students, specifically, are introduced to Marine Biology, Computer Class, and Movement Classes. The teachers teach Art and Spanish in the classroom.
