Curriculum

Preschool is such an exciting time for learning and growth. During these important years a love of learning is developed. Here at North Run Baptist Prekindergarten we know that preschoolers learn primarily through play.  Each step of the way, we focus on meeting individual needs and helping your child gain the confidence necessary for the next stage of learning. We provide many opportunities for free and teacher led exploration. We use a multi-sensory approach to teach letter and number recognition in small and large group settings. Our class sizes are small enough that your child will receive individual learning experiences throughout the day. Our units of learning are taught through themes. We incorporate Bible, language and literacy, math, science, social studies, music, free play indoors and outdoors, and creative arts into our daily routines. Our goal is to help your child become a life-long learner.
