Green Valley Methodist Kindergarten

But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,

goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Galatians 5:22-23

Curriculum & Objectives

Bible

One distinctive quality about our kindergarten is the emphasis placed on the love of God through His son Jesus Christ.  The children learn a different fruit of the spirit (Gal 5: 22-23) each month.  Our Bible curriculum, Biblical Choices, is published by Standard Publishing.  Biblical Choices is a multisensory, activity-based Bible curriculum created for kindergarten.  It is divided into three areas of emphasis:  Creation, right choices, and the life of Christ. 

Language Arts

Our students are taught reading in a positive, individualized environment.  Our curriculum is based both on phonics and the recognition of high-frequency words. Our main goal is to develop students who love to read. 

Math

We utilize the Kathy Richardson math curriculum for number operations that was designed to help young children develop important foundational mathematics concepts.   We believe that a strong manipulative program helps students achieve greater mathematical understanding.

Social Studies & Science

The social studies and science lessons are interactive and “hands-on”. For example, we plant an herb garden and learn about its maintenance.

Experiential learning is encouraged as we take monthly field trips related to unit studies. 

Physical Education, Music, Art & Computers

Our students have the opportunity to engage in extra-curricular activities in physical education, music and art. We feature an “artist of the month” chosen from the great masters.  We believe this encourages our students to learn the rich heritage of the arts.

We offer the Kindergarten Advantage! Program provided by Computer Explorers.  KA! is a unique technology applications course specifically designed for kindergarten students. The goal is to help students build a foundation for basic computer usage, keyboarding, word-processing, graphics, multimedia presentations and spreadsheets. Students use special “kid-friendly” software that overlays Microsoft Office®.

 

Goals

  • We are committed to providing a high quality, Christian kindergarten education. 
  • Establishment of a safe, healthy learning environment
  • Advancement of physical and intellectual skills
  • Support of social & emotional development through positive guidance and discipline
  • Creation of positive and productive relationships with our school families
  • Assurance of a well-run, purposeful program responsive to participant needs
  • Commitment to professionalism

 

School Information

  • Our kindergarten class is in session Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
  • We believe that students thrive in small classes; therefore, we limit our class size to 15 students.

 

Admission & Tuition Policies

  • The Green Valley Methodist Preschool & Kindergarten accepts children of any race, color, national/ethnic origin or religion.
  • A $100.00 non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of enrollment. After enrollment, parents will receive a registration packet that must be completed and returned by March 1st.
  • We are a non-profit organization which operates solely on the tuition fees collected from our students. Tuition is the same each month of our school year and we are unable to prorate fees for any reason. It is our policy to collect tuition one month in advance; therefore, tuition is due on the first of the month to pay for the following month.  Tuition for September is due by May 1st. A refundable $250.00 curriculum fee is due by April 1st.
  • Tuition is $500.00 per month.
