Preschool

Our Mission
Our goal at SunRise Preschool is to provide a developmentally appropriate program within a Christian environment that nurtures your child’s spiritual, physical, emotional, social, and intellectual growth. Our program emphasizes creativity and promotes the development of self esteem, peer cooperation, and strong moral values. We encourage children to experience God’s unique love for them as individuals and to understand He loves all children.


Our Curriculum
Our preschool curriculum follows the guideline of the National Association for the Education of the Young Child (NAEYC) and includes hands-on experiences in science, art, music, storytelling, and physical activity. "Kids in Motion," a monthly, hour-long class led by a certified gymnastics instructor, exposes our preschoolers to age-appropriate physical movement and gymnastics.


Our Classes
We offer a class for Young Threes two days a week. This is for children who turn three years of age between June 1st and December 31st of the new school year. It is not necessary for children to be potty trained for this class. Classes are held from 9:00 to 11:30 on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. Children in this age group are not elligible for our extended day program, Lunch Bunch.

 

There are a few choices for 3 year-olds.  Two day-a-week classes that meet on Monday and Wednesday mornings, or Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Three day-a-week classes that meet Tues/Wed/Thurs mornings or afternoons.  Morning classes are from 9 to 11:30 and afternoon classes run from 12:30 to 3:00. The class ratio is eight children to one teacher. To be eligible, your child must be three years old by August 1 of the new school year and toilet trained.

Pre-kindergarten classes for 4 year-olds are offered for children who turn 4 by August 1 of the new school year. The class ratio is 10 children to one teacher. Parents may choose between a four day-a-week class (M,T,W, Th mornings from 9 to 11:30) and a three day-a-week class (T,W,Th afternoons from 12:30 to 3:00).

A 5's class is offered for children who turn five years of age between June 1 and October 31. Recommendations for this class may also come from our teachers.
