Learning Skills

The Pre-K Class is academically based to meet the requirements of our local Avon Public School System for their testing qualifications. We use bible based curriculum mixed with hands on activities, games, and centers. We incorporate each of the building foundations used in national standards in our lesson plans, to include, blocks, dramatic play, science, sensory, math, art, literacy, music/movement, gross and fine motor skills, as well as manipulative. We strive to provide a fun playful atmosphere, mixed with imagination, while supporting social interaction, emotional and physical development with a spiritual emphasis. Children are our future and we believe in building a solid foundation during their preschool years.
