Kindergarten (5 year old)
Our Kindergarten program utilizes Saxon Phonics, Saxon Math, Abeka Science and Social Studies, Building Math Minds and D’Nealian writing program. We hold students to high standards and encourage them in their God-given talents. Our low student-to-teacher ratio provides for considerable one-on–one attention and individual teaching opportunities.
Family of Christ abides by the state standards for Kindergarten. In an effort to reform the educational standards of the nation, 46 states joined together to produce critical thinkers. The standards call for higher cognitive demand, explanation and analysis..

This is an extended program open to children ages 3-5 years and is offered Monday through Friday, 12pm to 1pm. Each child brings their own lunch and has a teacher supervise “Stay & Play” time with their friends. Cost is: $8.00.
At Family of Christ Preschool and Kindergarten we believe our Christ-centered faith provides a strong foundation for preschool education. It is our goal to encourage a love for learning through teaching methods which are fun and engaging, focusing growth in areas of strength and interest, while building those foundational skills.
