Preschool

Highland Christian Academy preschool program is based on sound developmental and educational principles. Student learning involves a combination of hands-on activities, games, manipulatives, gross and fine motor skills, reading readiness, and writing. Children are introduced to the alphabet (both upper and lowercase letters) for visual recognition and phonemic awareness. Math concepts include numeric recognition and quantitative values. (Preschool 4's will concentrate on numbers 1-20, and Preschool 3's will focus on numbers 1-10.) A sampling of the many thematic units experienced and enjoyed include Health and Nutrition, Community Helpers, Music and Instruments, Seasons, and Nursery Rhymes.

Children are instructed in the primary elements of classroom structure and self-control. They practice listening skills, taking turns, and following directions. Assertive discipline is the foundational behavioral system implemented by the school. Successful behavioral choices are reinforced positively, and time-out is used when a negative consequence is earned.

Parents are kept informed through a monthly newsletter, a calendar, and additional correspondence regarding upcoming field trips and special days. Special guests are invited to interact with our Preschool 3's, and the Preschool 4's take approximately five field trips each year. Parent involvement is highly encouraged through voluntary provision of snacks for the child's class, chaperoning field trips, and assistance during special days. All preschoolers participate in an unforgettable experience called Theme Days which is celebrated each January.

All learning activities are planned with the goal of making your child's first school experience a positive one.  The class structure provides a sense of security, while the educational variety stimulates learning.
