Calvary Christian School’s kindergarten program is a full day of learning, enrichment, and fun in a safe environment with caring teachers who provide the framework for academic, physical, spiritual and social activities.
Academically, the children have reading readiness lessons, science units, language skills, and math concepts, such as counting to 100. They also learn number and shape recognition, math readiness skills, phonics sounds, and letter recognition.
Art and writing activities, gym time, and recess involve the fine and motor skills that contribute to physical development.
Spiritual activities include weekly chapel, daily Bible lessons, character development lessons, and relating the wonder of God’s creation in reading enrichment time, their science units, and daily interactions. In our kindergarten classrooms, both the ABEKA curriculum (developed by Pensacola Christian College) and the BJU Press curriculum (developed by Bob Jones University) are used to place a strong emphasis on phonics, reading comprehension, and mathematics. They are superior academic programs enhanced by the Christian philosophy we believe to be necessary for our students.
Music is integrated into lessons through the curriculum and chapel. Weekly Kindermusik sessions are also an option (click on the Arts tab above). Social development is encouraged during a daily playtime, recess, and units in social studies that help the children become aware of the community around them.
Field trips are an essential part of a kindergartener’s learning experiences, such as a trip with their class to a working farm.
