Preschool K2, K3, and K4

We take advantage of the teachable moments that happen every day — opportunities to help your child grow, learn, and love. Preschool is just the beginning.

The academic exploration and play in the JA preschool years will instill in your child the foundation for a lifelong love of learning. Through personal attention and a thoughtful academic curriculum, we are committed to the intellectual, creative, social, emotional, and physical growth of your child.

Your child will explore and expand his or her knowledge of the world, all enhanced by an outstanding introduction to art, music, and libraries. Through hands-on activities, we’ll develop perceptual motor skills, strengthening the link between moving and learning.

In the end, we will give your child an excellent jump-start in reading, writing, listening, and speaking — all in an environment where children feel cared for and safe.

K2, K3, and K4 Highlights

Engaging and imaginative, our programs will accelerate your child’s natural curiosity. We incorporate visual, auditory and tactile experiences to help gain a deeper understanding of the world. Through the world of play, we help build open hearts and minds.

In Preschool, your child will:

Begin each day with three things — a Bible story, the Pledge of Allegiance, and prayer.

Enjoy snacks and socializing during snack time and playbreak.

Explore science concepts through hands-on learning.

Gain exposure to the idea of language and phonemic awareness

Channel natural energy into the refinement of perception and coordination abilities through physical education.
