Preparing for Kindergarten
We encourage our student’s natural curiosity and imagination as they explore and discover the world around them. Our youngest knights are learning and growing in a caring and nurturing environment that instills a love for learning. The curriculum is designed to foster our little ones social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical development as they begin their exciting and fun-filled Covenant journey.
Through our program, our youngest knights develop qualities, such as creativity, trust, confidence, curiosity, independence, and responsibility, through hands-on play, conversations, singing, and movement. As our little ones grow throughout the year, they achieve the key skills necessary to be successful in Kindergarten.

Learning Through Play
Our little Knights are introduced to everything from academic fundamentals to navigating social relationships. We give prekindergartners instruction time alongside playtime, ensuring they’re learning by doing, all while having fun! Group activities allow for social interaction and skill building, such as taking turns, sharing, sitting still, and teamwork.
Supportive and Nurturing Environment
Our PK4 students feel seen, heard, and loved as their teachers model Christian values through kindness, and respect. In addition, your child’s safety is also our priority. We have put thoughtful measures in place to keep our campus secure, such as CCTV monitoring, a full-time security guard, locked doors and gates.
