Curriculum

Much of TKAP’s success can be attributed to its caring staff and a well-planned, research-based curriculum. The Preschool’s instructional program is based on the belief that  children learn through play and its curriculum offers:

• ABeka Curriculum
• monthly themes
• discovery learning centers
• Bible stories, pledges, songs and devotions
• art, science, home, building, pretend play, writing and music centers
• simple math and phonics skills
• large and fine motor skills and manipulative development
• interactive play and movement
• behavior and manners teaching
• Godly character traits and values
• simple scripture memory
• letters, shapes, colors, numbers and opposites
• weekly chapel with music and movement (where parents are always welcome)
• weekly lesson plans
• supervised outdoor playground time in the morning and afternoon

Mrs. Farmer describes her goals for the Preschool as follows, “We seek to create a Christ-centered atmosphere of love, respect, trust, and safety where children will strive to  achieve their maximum potential under God. Our faculty endeavors to minister to the ‘total’ child. This instruction encompasses the spiritual, mental, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional areas of child development. These areas are inseparable. Therefore, the truth of God’s Word is incorporated throughout the entire curriculum.”
