All children in the Preschool and older classes will participate in a weekly Chapel time where they listen to Bible stories based on the Day School’s monthly Bible verse/story, sing songs, and do other activities that teach the Bible lessons in simple, age-appropriate, and relevant ways.
The Preschool and older classes will visit the music and movement classroom once a week. During music, the teacher will introduce new songs through singing and playing simple instruments.
All children in the Preschool: Two’s and older classes will meet with the Spanish teacher once a week and be introduced to the basic concepts and phrases of the Spanish language.
Each week the children in the Preschool: Three’s and older classes have a chance to visit the church’s library. We emphasize the importance of literacy and books within our program and value the opportunity to have a weekly visit to the library.
