Give Them a Great Start
Covenant’s Early Childhood offers in-depth programs designed to help children learn, develop and grow as they gain more independence.
Little Pelicans is Covenant’s Early Childhood class for children turning 3 by August 1. The preschool years are a time of rapid growth in children as they are developing new skills and are gaining more independence. In order to aid in their development, the Little Pelicans class provides students with a caring, nurturing environment while exploring God’s creation. Biblical themes are woven throughout the curriculum on a daily basis. Children’s literature serves as a foundation for themes leading to hands-on center activities. Teachers seek to acclimate the early childhood learner to school routines and to be excited about new discoveries. During the year children will be given the opportunity to increase their social, physical (gross and fine motor), emotional, spiritual, and cognitive skills. Each Little Pelican is treated as an individual, and small class sizes insure that it is possible to meet the needs of all learners. Parent partnership with school personnel is important at Covenant Christian School and is an integral part of the Little Pelicans program.
Covenant’s Pre-Kindergarten class is a three or five mornings per week program designed to promote readiness for Kindergarten. Through a variety of early childhood learning experiences, Pre-Kindergarten stresses counting and number recognition, knowledge of capital letters and sounds, handwriting (using the Handwriting without Tears curriculum), an introduction to rhyming, time in Covenant’s Outdoor Classroom, nature journaling, and special science projects. In addition, children are offered Music, and Library each week. Pre-Kindergarten is designed for children who turn four before August 1st.
