Kindergarten

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..
