Foundations in education and social conduct
taught in a Christ-centered environment
At Harvest Preschool, children prepare for kindergarten in a Christ-centered environment, learning memory verses all year long alongside educational essentials. We also begin to introduce important executive functioning skills: transitions and adaptable thinking, self-control, working memory, and organization.
Our program is largely learn-through-play. Preschoolers have access to a variety of elements that encourage them to stretch and grow their abilities while they think they’re simply having fun.
Our room is similar to a kindergarten room, divided into centers that allow children to explore a variety of educational experiences.
manipulatives (fine motor skills)
Students also participate in circle, story, and snack times; all which assist in preparing them for what will be expected in kindergarten.
