First Light Weekday Preschool

Our loving staff provides a curriculum-based learning program for children from birth through kindergarten. This step-by-step, multisensory program will set a solid spiritual and academic foundation for your child.

Our weekday preschool runs from September through May. Come join us for a Christ-centered atmosphere filled with fun!


Babies-Twos: Classes are available from 9:30am -1:00pm, 2-3 days a week, based on age.
Threes-Kindergarten: Classes are available 3-5 days a week, from 9:15 am - 1:15 pm.

Our children are challenged and inspired to love exploring and thinking for themselves. We offer hands-on learning where the children develop age-appropriate social skills while experiencing success, happiness and self-confidence. Our trained staff is dedicated to provide a safe, loving atmosphere where children can thrive within a Christlike environment.

Philosophy
At First Light, we desire to provide a safe and loving atmosphere of fun and excitement while learning – where the child’s environment is stimulated at each age level to explore, discover and experience success  socially, emotionally, physically, academically and spiritually.  

We believe in a “building block” teaching strategy where each age level is built on the prior age level.  Therefore, from babies through kindergarten, your child will receive a solid step-by-step foundation.   We teach the “whole” child and lovingly develop a strong foundation to prepare each child for kindergarten/first grade. Saxon curriculum is also used for our four-year-old and kindergarten classes.

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience that we have had at First Light Preschool over the last 4 years. All of the teachers and staff and students are like family to us and we love all of you and we will miss seeing you everyday. The school has been such a blessing to our entire family. Our daughter has grown to love Jesus so much more than we could ever have imagined. Thank you for making a difference in our child's life.

Goals
Realizing all children learn on different levels, our primary goals are:
To provide a hands-on learning environment where the child develops age-appropriate social skills and experiences success, thus promoting happiness and self-confidence.
To provide a strong curriculum that inspires a desire and excitement to learn and also spurs creativity.
To provide a spiritual foundation through sharing, songs and teaching about God, Jesus, and the Bible.
To show Christian love and accept each child as a unique individual.

Curriculum
We have completely “overhauled” our curriculum at First Light! We now provide an enriched developmental program at each age level
that is both biblically based as well as academically challenging to ensure success at each “building block” stage of learning. Whether
in our babies program, kindergarten, or somewhere in between, your child will be ready for the next level! All areas of teaching are
covered: language development, math, science, social studies, art, music and movement.

Wee Learn, published by LifeWay Christian Resources, is our biblically based curriculum for all ages. It is composed of thematic units and
incorporates learning concepts and skills through play and academics. Saxon curriculum is also used for our four- year- old and kindergarten
classes. Other materials and curricula are used to enhance and supplement such as, “Your Baby Can Read,” and others.

Faculty
Our staff consists of fully trained and experienced Christian teachers and assistants.  They attend several teacher workshops and seminars throughout the year to enhance their own educational development.  Each class has a teacher and a teacher assistant that genuinely loves and cares for the children with a strong desire for quality teaching.
