At Faith Christian Academy kindergarteners get started with reading, writing, and math even at three years old. Most importantly everything is taught from a Christian perspective. For instance, when they learn about the holidays, they will learn the Christian history that causes such celebration and remembrance. When they learn about “good” behavior, the instructions are founded on the objective truth of God’s character and how the Bible teaches us to treat one another. Discipline is usually minimal: it starts with redirection towards positive behavior with further explanation as necessary. Here Christian teachers are able to truly comfort children’s hearts with the love of Christ that is more secure and deeply satisfying than any secular alternative.

“It is my privilege to have the opportunity to teach K3 and to instruct biblical principals through memory verses, bible stories and song. Along with listening skills, number & letter concepts, shape recognition, and coloring & tracing. The Lord has given me a love for young children and it brings such great joy to see them learn both academically and in their love for the Lord. ” ~Mrs. Schlagel

“When I began teaching preschool in 2012, God quickly showed me how much I loved working with this age group. Their joy and wonder for learning is one of my favorite things about teaching preschool. Introducing them to the learning environment, as well as skills in social, fine motor, gross motor, early math, english, and reading are all things that I love to do in Pre-K. Each morning we open a gift box with a ribbon on it to introduce the theme for the week. The box says, “Gods gift of…” on the top of it. God has given us learning and everything we learn about, which is why I start each day with this reminder to focus on God’s gifts so they can start their schooling years with God at the center.” ~Mrs. Surface
