The school day begins at 8:25a.m.and ends at 3:15p.m. The program is designed to match each student’s interests, abilities, and learning style. All areas of reading readiness are emphasized, and math readiness is taught through discovery and the use of manipulatives. Play is a very important part of each day’s activities and there is a short rest time after lunch. Our goal is for each child to love God, themselves and others, and love school.
Students entering Kindergarten must be five years of age before August 30.
