Our kindergarten program is SCHOOL; it's not a fancy daycare program. Sure, we offer after school care, but our students are here to learn - and they do. Of course, school is FUN, but it's not all about fun and games. We are intentional about our kindergarten learning and our K3-K5 students get a GREAT academic foundation.
Our daycare is religiously exempt from licensure and the qualifications of personnel employed for our pre-school/daycare. (Having said, that, we can also say we EXCEED any requirements when it comes to teaching staff!) We also have health requirements for the staff, as well as public liabililty insurance. Although religiously exempt, we strive exceed any county or state requirements designed to protect children.
We really have a great program, but you don't really expect us to say we have a lousy one, do you? Anyway, the word on the street is -- for over 20+ years -- is that our kindergarten program is fantastic and its super-economical, thanks to the generosity of our host church, Temple Baptist.
K3 and K4 programs are half-day. You may also sign up for afternoon daycare. Our kindergarten programs teach phonics and reading; they give children an incredible head start on their academic careers.
K3 students must be potty-trained and be three by Sept 1. They must also be able to understand English. To be clear, classroom time is fun, but it's for learning and we have fantastic teachers who make it happen!
