Our PK4-Kindergarten program is the formal beginning of a child’s lifetime of learning. We want to set each student on a course to love God and love learning. Our goal is to partner with parents to provide a strong foundation for each child in a loving, nurturing, Christ-centered environment.
Paideia Academy’s PK4 curriculum balances introductory academic skills with play and social training to begin developing positive attitudes about school and learning in every student. Students will enjoy Bible stories, singing, and math and language centers. Training in self-discipline and self-control, listening, following instructions, and cooperation will be emphasized through individual and group participation, preparing the students for the transition to Kindergarten.
There are three main subject areas of focus in our Kindergarten program – Bible, math, and language. The students begin learning these basics through the use of creative songs, chants, recitation, and games. Teaching methods involving multiple senses and much repetition are characteristic of this stage of the classical model, and the children love it! Kindergarten instruction includes phonics, reading readiness, math, and other language skills such as handwriting and spelling, essential for preparing students for our School of Grammar.
