• Are active learners.  They are given the opportunity to independently explore Learning Centers everyday.  These Centers are
    designed to help children learn to make choices, become self-reliant, confident responsible classroom citizens.
  • Learn though special events and projects.  Kindergarten students explore new ideas, discuss their hypothesis, make observations
    and document their conclusions.  Their higher level thinking skills are challenged and encouraged.
  • Learn through sharing with others.  Reading skills are developed in a natural, environmental word rich classroom.  Homework is a
    fun, and often includes family activities.
  • Learn in a Christian atmosphere – where God and his unending love are incorporated into everything we do.  Weekly Bible stories
    come to life as we tie them in with our themes.

Our Kindergarteners:
  • Receive individual and small group attention from  experienced teachers.  Our class size is small, with an
    average class size of 12.
  • Are immersed in high interest monthly themes such as Water, Nocturnal Animals, Vehicles, Plants,
    Oviparous Animals, and Birds.  These themes serve as the “umbrella” for the brain-based, hands-on
    learning activity centers.  Reading, writing and math skills are seamlessly incorporated into every area of
    the curriculum.

“My son's Kindergarten experiences not only readied him for first grade academically, but also helped him build confidence in his
abilities, work independently and conscientiously, and develop leadership skills by helping others. The best part was that he had
fun and was always "drawn in" by the month's focus theme.”         Mary Lou R.
“We are so pleased with the Kindergarten Program at CBC!  The curriculum is creative and inventive, and the kids have fun while they
learn in a safe, Christian environment.  It offers so much more than merely teaching rote skills and completing worksheets; but rather,
the children are immersed in activities that teach them to think critically in reading, language arts, math and science.  The kids learn to
work independently but also get lots of one-on-one attention.  Our daughter was reading by Christmas which really boosted her
confidence!  We highly recommend this program!”  Catherine & Phillip P.
All academic goals are woven throughout the theme units.
