Preschool & PDO

 

Proverbs 3:5&6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.

Since 1990, God has "directed the path" of Covenant Methodist Preschool / PDO and sent thousands of children ages 6 weeks through 4 year olds to our program. Covenant Preschool/PDO provides a loving Christian atmosphere with a safe, positive, happy and stimulating environment where children can learn, grow and play. Our purpose is not only to provide quality care for children, but also to prepare them for Kindergarten. Upon graduation from our Pre-K4’s class, our goal is that the children will leave Covenant with confidence and excitement to enter Kindergarten because of the educationally sound curriculum taught at Covenant by our caring and qualified staff.

CURRICULUM

Covenant’s curriculum begins in the one year old room and is designed to build year to year. Children learn the letters of the alphabet, phonics, numbers, colors & shapes appropriate for each age level. 1s & 2s have special books of the month while 3s & 4s cover certain themes. Children also learn their 5 senses and many opposite words. Sight words are learned in the 4 year old room.

Music is an important part of the Covenant day. Children wiggle, sing, play instruments and laugh their way through music time. They learn to bounce in rhythm and march to the beat. 4s are introduced to handbells and ALL enjoy making a “joyful noise"!

The curriculum also includes reinforcing what the children are learning through special days and visitors. Playtime is not ignored, as the children enjoy our playground facilities and a gymnasium. Story time and free play are a part of each day. You may click on the links below to view our curriculum:
