3 and 4 Year Olds
Dear Prospective Parent,
Thank you for your interest in the K3 and K4 program at Lake Region Christian School. "K3 and K4" stands for three and four year old pre-school. While it is a "pre-school" program, we want to stress that it is an academic pre-kindergarten program designed for three and four year old children to prepare them for their kindergarten enrollment. Your child must have turned three or four years old by September 1 of the year they will attend, and must be completely toilet-trained.
There are 4 options in the K3 & K4 programs: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 –11:30 or 8:30 – 2:50; or Monday through Friday from 8:30 – 11:30 or 8:30 – 2:50. Before and after school care is available if needed.
In K3, students will learn to recognize colors and shapes. They will start to work on learning the letters of the alphabet and numbers 1-15. Students will also develop skills such as gluing, and coloring during craft time. There will be stories, music, snack, and playtime. During our thematic units, they will also learn more about the world around them.
In K4, students will learn to recognize and write the letters of the alphabet, say the sound each letter makes, recognize and write the numbers 1-20, and work on counting to 100. Daily and weekly schedules include Bible stories, memorizing verses, penmanship, math, music, art, snack, and playtime. Students will also work on learning to read simple words using the phonics that they learn throughout the year. They have seasonal parties, field trips, and special guests that will help them learn more about where they live.
Thank you for your interest in the pre-school program at Lake Region Christian School! We would love to work with you in educating your child.
