The King’s Academy Preschool was established to serve the needs of our families by providing a loving, nurturing, Christ-centered environment of discovery and learning for preschoolers. In our center, children will be treated as precious creations of God, each with unique talents, interests, and needs. The King’s Academy Preschool supports parents as the primary educators of their children. Our wish is to form a partnership with parents to provide a strong spiritual foundation as we endeavor to “train up a child in the way he should go” (Proverbs 22:6).
The King’s Academy Preschool (TKAP) is an extension of The King’s Academy (TKA) school program and, therefore, adheres to the same beliefs, mission, and philosophy as the school. Our objective is to serve entire school families by providing younger children with the same level of educational excellence afforded our existing student body.
God’s Word is inerrant, providing an absolute standard (II Timothy 3:16).
Man is basically sinful and in need of salvation (Psalms 51:5, 58:3; Romans 3:10-12, 23; James 1:13-15; Jeremiah 17:9).
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth to die for our sins (John 3:16).
Salvation comes through faith in Christ’s payment for sin on the cross (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Since God’s Word is applicable to every area of man’s life, all subjects must be taught from a Biblical perspective (Colossians 1:17, 3:17; Romans 11:36; Hebrews 4:12).
Since students often emulate their teacher, the teacher must be born-again and a model pleasing to God (Matthew 18:6; Ezra 7:10; James 3:1; John 17:19).
The teacher must be dedicated to the task to which he is called (Romans 12:1).
The classroom should be teacher-centered, rather than student-centered, in the sense that the teacher is the authority (Romans 13:1; Hebrews 13:17).
Students need direction, challenge, and supervision (Proverbs 29:15).
Students need both positive and negative feedback (Proverbs 3:27; 23:13).
The teacher stands in place of the parent (Hebrews 13:17).
Each student is valuable in God’s sight (Matthew 10:31).
God expects each student to work at his fullest God-given potential (Matthew 25:14-30; Ecclesiastes 9:10; Colossians 3:23-24).
The home, school, and church should complement each other (Amos 3:3).
The Christian school should supplement, not supplant, the local church (Hebrews 10:25).
Students need a well-rounded education – spiritual, mental, social, and physical (I Corinthians 10:31; Luke 2:52).
