  • Daily life

    A Bible story, Bible verse and character trait are discussed each week during circle time. The 5K students will also attend children’s chapel at Holy Cross Episcopal Church every other week. The students in 5K are instructed in small groups in reading, writing, math, and science A “spotlight student” is selected every week to present an “all about me” poster to his/her classmates. You and your child will complete this project together in advance. The children will put on special performances for the parents for the Christmas holidays and graduation. Children may bring breakfast from home up until 8am. Children are provided with lunch at 11am and a snack at 2pm. We will provide alternate meals for children with allergies or dietary restrictions. Everyone lies down at 12:00 for quiet-time. Children who are not asleep by 12:30 are offered a book or quiet activity. Each child has a cubby space to hold their personal items. We recommend purchasing a Closetmaid fabric drawer to keep your child’s belongings contained and secure.

  • Keeping busy

    Children will need to bring a small blanket & pillow. These items will be sent home on Fridays to be washed. Children will need to keep a change of clothes at school that fit in a gallon-size storage bag. Children are provided with one-hour of outdoor playtime every morning and afternoon (weather permitting). Please send your child to school in socks and closed-toe shoes. Sandals, flip-flops, and Crocs lead to foot injuries and discomfort on the playground. The 5K class occasionally goes on field trips to the zoo, park, pumpkin patch, etc. A 30-minute music class is available on Monday mornings at an additional cost. Sports and fitness classes are available weekly for an additional charge – more information.
