Where young hearts & minds thrive in a caring community
King’s Preschool is a faith-based preschool for children ages 18 months to 5 years old. At the heart of our program is our personal love and relationship with Jesus and our desire to share His love with His children. We are committed to providing each child with a thoughtful, creative, and cooperative learning curriculum that equips them in body, mind, and spirit for God’s purpose and glory.
King’s offers Full-Day Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classrooms and one Half-Day Mixed Age Group classroom. We also offer extended morning care from 7-8:30 AM.
Our Full-Day Preschool options by age are as follows:
- Age 18 months-2 ½ year old class (Beginning Preschool)
- Age 2-3 year old class (Beginning Preschool/Preschool)
- Age 3-4 year old class (Preschool/Pre-K)
- Age 4-5 year old class (Pre-K)
- Age 2 ½-5 year old class (Mixed Age Half-Day Program)
Half-Day Mixed Age Classrooms
Ages: 2 ½ to 5 years
Studies have shown that children develop cognitively and socially through interacting with older and younger children. Education experts believe these mixed age interactions nurture creative thinking skills, problem solving skills, vocabulary and other social competencies.
Mixed-age teaching resembles more closely the family setting that children with siblings find themselves in at home. Growing up with other children of various ages means that children are more than capable of adapting to various social situations throughout their lives.
In the mixed age classrooms, there is likely to be a greater general sense of cooperation. Friendship groupings can cross traditional age boundaries and younger children can often view older children as part of the hierarchy of authority in their school when they share the same classroom. This leads to a diminished need for teacher intervention in the event of behavior needing correction.
Our Teachers and Staff
All teachers and staff at King’s Preschool have an enthusiasm for teaching young children, research and applied knowledge in Early Childhood Education, ability to make purposeful observations, and a growing relationship with Jesus and knowledge of His love towards us. We remind each other of our unique call to minister and to build up the youngest of God’s children, knowing that we are planting God’s seeds of truth and wisdom that will help anchor their lives.
