Our Curriculum: Core Knowledge Preschool

The Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence is a set of model guidelines describing fundamental competencies and specific knowledge that, for children from three to five years of age, can provide a solid, coherent foundation for later learning in kindergarten and beyond. In our current system, disadvantaged children especially suffer from low expectations that often translate into “waiting until they are ready” and watered-down curricula. The Preschool Sequence is intended to guide the planning of experiences and activities for preschool children by offering a coherent progression of skills and knowledge in the following areas: Physical Well-Being and Motor Development • Movement and Coordination Social and Emotional Development • Autonomy and Social Skills Approaches to Learning • Work Habits Language • Oral Language • Nursery Rhymes, Poems, Fingerplays and Songs • Storybook Reading and Storytelling • Emerging Literacy Skills in Reading and Writing Knowledge Acquisition and Cognitive Development • Mathematical Reasoning and Number Sense • Orientation in Time and Space • Scientific Reasoning and the Physical World • Music • Visual Arts

Christian Education is also a part of our curriculum. The following areas are covered:

  • Listen to Old and New Testament Bible stories

  • Recognize that plants, animals, and human beings are God's creations

  • Recognize that God created families to love and take care of one another

  • Learn about God's love

  • Listen to stories of the life of Jesus

  • Learn Jesus' teachings to love God and love others
