CURRICULUM FOR VPK CLASSES
The WEE Learn Curriculum for Pre-K is a comprehensive curriculum plan for four-year olds which contains ample teaching by using books, music, nature, and toys to illustrate Christian fundamentals. Age-appropriate learning activities are designed to lay a foundation for understanding God, Jesus, Bible, church, self, family, others, and the natural world. Our day will consist of learning centers and group activities as well as activities for pre-reading, pre-writing, phonics, and number skills. Each unit features two Bible stories, Bible memory verses and planned activities. Snack (each child brings their own), on-campus field trips and playground will be included in this block of time.
LUNCH AND SNACKS
Students enrolled in our VPK only class M-F 8:00-11:00 will need a morning snack from home as they will be leaving before lunchtime. All other VPK students need to bring a morning snack and a lunch from home. Afternoon snack for all students enrolled in our Wrap-Around programs until 6:00 p.m. will be given an afternoon snack provided by the school. A lunch charge of $3.50 can be paid on the day of an individual lunch purchase. Lunch tickets can be purchased at a cost of $35.00 (for 10 lunches). Lunch charges are billed to accounts for Wrap Around students only. An additional carton of milk or juice may be purchased for 40¢.
