Creative Curriculum® and A Beka for Kindergarten
Today's standards and curriculum for first grader students require an increasing amount of academic work that sometimes challenges children. The latest research in early childhood learning is incorporated into The Creative Curriculum® - a forward-thinking curriculum that honors creativity and makes learning exciting and relevant for every child. Our Kindergarten program incorporates the Loudoun County Standards of Learning. All our Kindergarten programs incorporate weekly music, chapel and library time. Children also enjoy teacher-directed SPARK (Sports, Play and Active Recreation for Kids) fitness. We help children to engage in a rich array of learning experiences that develop the essential prerequisites for school and academic readiness. We credit the success of our Kindergarten programs to our exceptional teachers, unique curriculum and a nurturing yet challenging environment that helps children feel confident and ready for school.
We offers families three options:
- Full-Day Kindergarten, 5 days a week
- AM Kindergarten Enrichment, 5 days a week
- PM Kindergarten Enrichment, 5 days a week
Our Full-Day Kindergarten program uses the A Beka Book® curriculum. Full-day kindergarten students will learn language arts (phonics, reading, writing and poetry), science, math, social studies, bible and arts & crafts using the A Beka Book K5 Five-Year-Old Kindergarten Program. The A Beka curriculum approach to education keeps learning lively, interesting and memorable. Materials reflect sensible theory that is firmly anchored to practical application. Our students who graduate from this program have a firm foundation in learning and are well prepared for first grade.
Our AM Kindergarten Enrichment program offers children a morning of learning including a combination of language, journaling, math, science, and arts & crafts. Children enjoy a nutritious hot lunch before they go to school. We provide transportation to and from local schools at no additional cost to you. When children arrive back at LOA, they will have an afternoon snack and enjoy play-to-learn activities designed to encourage creativity, exploration, and imagination.
Our PM Kindergarten Enrichment program starts with a nutritious hot lunch, then an afternoon of stimulating learning. Similar to the AM program, the enrichment portion includes a combination of language, journaling, math, science, and arts & crafts. Children will also have a healthy snack in the afternoon
followed by a fun afternoon with developmentally appropriate activities.
