They are studying the Letter People more in depth as they are learning that letters have sounds and words are made up from letters. In addition to playing in centers, doing craft projects, reading books, going outside or in the gym, having Jesus Time and going to Chapel the Pre K class also gets to go to the church library (located in the Sampson House) to hear a story once a month. Pre K leads a Christmas and Easter Service and goes on one field trip in the spring. For those heading off to Kindergarten we have a Graduation Service in May but students are able to stay with us through the summer up until the first day of Kindergarten.
