Fives

pre-kindergarten class chester county paMonday/Tuesday/Friday or Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday

The Fives curriculum is developed around nine distinct units that incorporate on a daily basis an introduction to the varied skills necessary for complete kindergarten readiness. Through hands-on centers and imaginative play, each day includes math, science, social studies, language, art, and an interactive, instructional circle time. Several field trips enhance the curriculum. Our Bible curriculum is specifically designed for this age group; and through a chronological study of both Old and New Testament stories, the children learn true and applicable biblical precepts.
