Classical Beginnings: Preschool Program

Pre-K3 (Busy Bears) and Pre-K4 (Froggy Fours)

Our preschool program reaches far beyond just learning letters and numbers.  At Covenant Christian school we believe in nurturing your child’s mind, body and spirit through engaging, hands-on learning experiences.  Not only do we provide your child with exceptional academic preparation for Kindergarten, we also help them grow in their relationships with others in their appreciation of the beauty and wonder of God and the world around them.

The day is carefully planned to tap into each child’s senses and reveal their inner person.  Music, reading, arts and crafts, gross-motor physical activity, sensory playtime, and more are all incorporated into our daily curriculum. 

 

Curriculum

Covenant Christian Preschool integrates a Classical Christian Education concept into all academic areas while incorporating a wide variety of active learning experiences.  Each classroom’s instruction caters to each students’ needs while strengthening each child’s will to participate in group activities.  Lesson planned activities are designed to be hands-on and utilize a discovery-based method through classroom centers.  These developmentally-appropriate activities can also be scaffolded based on students’ needs.  Because our preschool program is a part of Covenant Christian School, students also receive additional enrichment with occasional visits from Rhetoric (High School) teachers and students.  All themes are taught using biblical principles as the basis for each unit.

 

Location

Covenant Christian School is located at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 2350 Frankford Avenue, Panama City, FL 32405.

 

School Tours and Visits

We encourage you to plan a visit to our campus for a personal tour. We feel visiting our campus in person is the best way to know if Covenant Christian School is where God is leading you for your child’s education. We’d love to meet you and your family.
