Education is a life-long pursuit as most of us know. You never stop learning, growing, expanding, pushing yourself outside your comfort zone, or exploring the next rise over the hill. By enrolling your children in Premier Christian Academy’s pre-k program, you are not only setting your child up for success in kindergarten, but you are giving them a life-long love of learning. When every new discovery is treated like Columbus’ discovery of the New World and every question is answered with surprising clarity, children’s minds open up to the possibility of the world. But more importantly, children believe from a young age that anything is possible — and it’s this belief that will help them when disasters strike or life is not going as planned.
At Premier Christian Academy, we use the award-winning Abeka curriculum to teach history, science, reading, and math, giving children not only a solid foundation in the basics of learning, but also teaching them about God as well. Kids have a place in this world and realizing that at a young age gives them a foundation to stand on. Below, we’ll go over some of our top reasons why we believe enrolling your child in a pre-k program is essential to maximize their growth potential. Contact us today to get started!
TOP BENEFITS OF KINDERGARTEN READINESS PROGRAMS
Teaches foundational skills.
Giving kids a solid foundation in the basics (reading, writing, and arithmetic, as well as other disciplines) will set them up for future success. This also boosts their confidence as they will know just as much as the kid sitting next to them and help them to not feel behind in some way. Being biblically based, Premier Christian Academy also teaches children biblical truths and foundations for them to build upon as they get older.
Probably by now you as a parent may be tired of hearing how pre-k builds social skills, but there is so much that plays into social skills. First, it gives kids the sense that they are not the center of the world. There are other kids who matter as well, whose feelings matter, and who have a say in what happens as well. Teaching kids the value of teamwork, how to share, how to have patience, and how to have self-control are all life-long skills that kids need in order to grow into proper functioning adults. Premier Christian Academy stresses the holistic child and his or her place in this world.
