Curriculum

At SMPK we employ a unique "thematic" curriculum to teach both Lower and Upper Preschoolers.  The children learn new concepts and academics through a variety of hands-on experiences and interactive learning.  We encourage activities such as science experiments, graphing, cooking projects, painting, drawing, learning games, creative writing, and use of manipulatives. Combined with chapel and Bible stories, we create a well-rounded program for your child. Our students have a daily specials class including Music, Creative Movement, Interactive Story time, Chapel, and Discovery.

 

Our 4K program uses Handwriting Without Tears, in addition to our thematic curriculum.  It is an introduction to handwriting to strengthen fine motor skills, as well as to develop proper form and structure to writing.

 

Our Half-day Kindergarten uses a combination of thematic units and the Saxon Phonics/ Math curriculum. Our Kindergarten program encourages hands on activities as well as strengthening their reading, writing and math skills.
