Preschool (Ages 2-1/2 through Pre-Kindergarten)
The Heritage Christian Academy preschool program offers a full, fun-packed experience for your child. Spiritual growth, positive social behavior, and academic preparation are the primary goals.
Instructors carefully guide each child in enriching daily activities with happiness, enthusiasm and Christ’s love. Children quickly learn that Christian love is not just talked about at Heritage, but it is practiced as well. We genuinely believe that every child is precious, and we communicate that daily.
It is wonderful to watch as these young children experience joy in discovering new things and as they develop an excitement for learning. Their creativity and imagination flourish. We want your child to develop to be the best he or she can be and to love coming to school! Your child is special to you, to us and to God. We look forward to working with you as a family. We welcome your interest and involvement.
We work diligently to create fun, meaningful and memorable experiences during the school year. Depending upon the age and developmental maturity level of the classes, our curriculum includes reading readiness, number and math concepts, beginning manuscript printing, colors, shapes, sizes and life concepts. Science and nature tables, cooking, drama, games and many creative activities keep the children interested and happy. A variety of visual aids, puppets and storybooks are used throughout the lessons.
Varied forms of art, including painting, coloring, cutting activities and craft projects as well as taking part in music and singing helps to build self-esteem. The children also participate in activities that foster development of small and large muscle coordination. Field trips, parties, special programs and guest visitors serve to expand the children’s awareness of the world around them.
Bible and character-building stories, Bible verse memorization and prayer are an important part of our day.
Teachers and parents keep in close contact with each other through conferences and evaluative progress reports.
Spacious, modern classrooms have a maximum of 18 children per class with a teacher and an aide. A special fenced playground for use by just the preschool and pre-Kindergarten students provides a safe outdoor play area.
