This is an exciting time for children, parents and teachers.  This is the time when many years of happy and successful school experiences begin.  By teaching the whole child, differentiating for individual needs, and working closely with parents, we provide a safe learning environment where all children can thrive.  Our main goal is to make school a positive experience and to instill a love of learning, to help your child learn and grow in the love of Jesus and to promote academic, spiritual, social and emotional growth in your child.  We use a variety of different methods to engage and teach children such as: Orange Bible Curriculum, Core Knowledge, Singapore Math, Handwriting Without Tears and Frog Street. We strive to develop educated, confident, and caring children through the love of Jesus and are glad your child will embark on that journey with us.

Programs

Preschool

Preschool classes are for children 3 years old.

The Preschool program is designed with the whole child’s development in mind and offers each a variety of sensory experiences including art and music; physical movement to enhance their large and small motor skills; time for thinking, planning, and decision-making, questioning, listening skills, and opportunities for peer group interaction. These classes concentrate on letters, sounds, numbers, quantity, colors, shapes and many other concepts through a Biblically integrated in a variety of ways to make learning fun and hands on.

Jr. Kindergarten

Junior Kindergarten classes are for children 4 and 5 years old.

Our Junior Kindergarten Program prepares children spiritually, academically and socially for a smooth transition into Kindergarten. The Junior Kindergarten Classes at PEPC Early Learning Center use the Core Knowledge Curriculum, Saxon Math and Handwriting Without Tears. We also utilize the ACSI Bible Curriculum that has been slightly altered to specifically follow along and enhance the Core Knowledge Curriculum domain topics.

Our goals for your child while enrolled in Junior Kindergarten are:
That they learn the love of Jesus, writing the letters A-Z (capital and lowercase), writing the numbers 1-10, knowing the calendar (names of days and months), weather identification, perception and developing observation skills, understanding opposites, sequence comprehension (patterns and relationships), character education (positive values and attitude development), and health (body awareness).

Transitional Kindergarten

This class will serves as an alternative class for children who are 5 years old by December 31.

Transitional Kindergarten is designed for children who have completed Junior Kindergarten, or whose birth dates are after the kindergarten cut-off. This program prepares your child to meet the kindergarten expectations set forth in the Common Core State Standards, but with increased expectations of student performance, additional levels of academic rigor and enrichment opportunities to create higher levels of cognitive reasoning and understanding.

Transitional Kindergarten bridges the gap between Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten and will give your student the head start they need that will yield huge academic results.

Mom’s Day Out

Mom’s Day Out is for children starting as early as 6 weeks old to 3 years old.
Children can come one or more days a week.

We have a structured day with many activities to help children learn appropriate interactions with other children in a group setting. We encourage children to make good choices by helping to establish trust, develop confidence and help them cultivate self control. Depending on the child’s developmental level we introduce letters, numbers and number meaning, colors, shapes, mathematical thinking, science inquiry, and cultural concepts in a variety of ways so that learning is fun and experiential.
