Our Young 5s Program

Our Young 5s Program (4-5 Year-Olds):

The Young 5s program is geared for children who are not quite ready for kindergarten and have summer birthdays and/or children turning 5 in the fall who would benefit from a more challenging curriculum. Monthly field trips are planned (except December and January) to enhance their learning experiences.

The teachers incorporate songs from Jolly Phonics and intentional age appropriate literacy activities. We also use activities from the “Handwriting Without Tears” curriculum.


Our classes offer daily Jesus Time, Group Time, Center Time, Free Play Time, Snack Time and Large Motor Development Time (outside or inside depending on the weather). Activities are geared towards stimulating each child to learn and grow confident in his/her own abilities. The children visit our school library and Chapel. Field trips include walking tours of the neighborhood, the pumpkin farm, fire station, the dentist office, the florist shop, and a petting zoo. We also take family trips to the ice show.
