LCA offers a full-day, nurturing Kindergarten program that provides a solid foundation for academic success. Allowing students to have exposure to real literature and good stories, while learning phonics, is the best combination for learning to read and learning to love reading! The curriculum utilized at LCA gives students the phonics skills needed to decode words as they learn to read. Along with phonics instruction, students are guided through literature-based units and stories from our Open Court text book series.
In Kindergarten, our students also begin to realize their ability to write their own stories through journal writing and the “Being a Writer” program our school utilizes. Science and Social Studies units are incorporated throughout the year with a focus on combining children’s literature and hands-on activities to learn key concepts. Our Math program, which includes fun three-dimensional manipulatives, provides a solid foundation for students as they progress through the various topics and levels of mathematic instruction.
Above all else, we work to instill in our Kindergarten students the foundation for what it means to know and love the Lord. Students learn about God through the lives of the major characters throughout the entire Bible using our curriculum, “Positive Action for Christ.” Our goal is to help students know God and understand that His word can impact their lives on a daily basis. We believe that in order for students to have a strong finish, they need a strong start! LCA works to provide that “strong start” for our Kindergarten students each day!
