Giraffe class – 4 1/2 to 5 years of age
Our Giraffe class began in 2010, when it became evident that parents were looking for a preschool class for the 4 1⁄2 to young 5 year old child, who would benefit from a preschool environment with some kindergarten curriculum added to the play based atmosphere. This class utilizes the Zoo‐phonics curriculum, along with the “Let’s Find Out” weekly theme based language arts/math materials for small group time. Bible stories are an intricate part of our curriculum, and students are encouraged to grow in their knowledge of Christ and model the kindness in their behavior that they like to receive. Weekly enrichment classes of Spanish, Physical Education and Music along with weekly Chapel services with the K – 8 students provide a school year rich with kindergarten readiness.
This class offers Monday through Thursday or Monday through Friday options, with full or half day (8:30am ‐ 1pm) options. All of our classes are held in over sized classrooms with large windows for lots of natural light. We also have dedicated time in our full sized gym and outdoor playground for large motor activity.
