Our full day program offers small class size with a multi-instructional approach to learning, which prepares each child to effectively meet the challenges of grade school.
Applicants for Kindergarten must be five years old by December 1st.
A Note from Our K-1 Teacher:
I have a passion to share the love of Jesus with my students while exemplifying an adult example of my daily devotion to being a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. Parents have placed their trust in me to serve their children's academic requirements as well as their character needs for over 30 years.
It is my goal as a CAWNY educator to provide a safe learning environment where young learners can grown and learn to their fullest potential. Our classroom has been "center" designed to facilitate our multi-aged students so that they may have a hands-on approach to explore and engage in their developmentally appropriate curriculums. Students can proceed academically by interacting with one another within small groups as well as large group settings.
I believe self-esteem shines in each child when they recognize the skills and content they can achieve through hard work and practice at even this young age. We know that learning is fun and can be an adventure! Their achievements speak volumes in their behaviors and demeanor in a socially-mixed environment.
I do expect parents to join me in this effort through communication between school and home and reinforcing skills and concepts. I have created a program that communicates with parents: "Our Super Heroes for Jesus." It provides daily feedback on their efforts throughout the day. I believe education is a team effort. The students and I interact with one another in a biblically-based family grouping.
1 Corinthians 10:31
Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God
A Parent's Thoughts on Our Kindergarten/1st Teacher
“I am writing this…in praise of our daughter's teacher. She has guided [our daughter] from Pre-K through First Grade. I am amazed at how much knowledge both scholastically, as well as spiritually, Mrs. Patterson has imparted to [our daughter]. Our daughter has grown significantly under Mrs. Patterson’s tutelage. I cannot sing her praises enough. She is literally the most unique teacher I have ever seen in my life. She has made school work come to life as well as imparted knowledge and wisdom regarding the Bible and Bible stories in such a way that this letter or any form of thanking her could never come close to the debt our family has for this wonderful woman. In closing, I would highly recommend Mrs. Patterson to start your children off for a complete Christian education where she has no equal in my opinion.” – Father of a First Grader
