This class is a play based learning environment. We move through our mornings at the pace of the students, switching activities and pausing according to the students’ level of engagement. It is important to me that class is a fun place to learn! I enjoy planning each part of our weekly times together. The students learn through lots of play, music and movement, and sensory activities.

Each morning begins with a welcome activity. This is an engaging hands on activity that invites the children to explore and creates excitement to enter into the classroom.  Next, we participate in a short circle time where we gather together to practice our communication skills.  During circle time children participate in a  Bible story and sing songs together. During Free play, children are offered a varitey of sensory based activities that build pre-writing, reading readiness skills, fine motor control, and bilateral coordination. A favorite part of our day is large motor time,where we get to play in the “red room,” followed by lunch time (from their lunchbox) and stories!  I am excited to be offering “MusicPlay” in our preschool classroom this year.  Children will have fun singing, moving, and playing instruments while be exposed to different kinds of music. At the end of the year, the children will have a tactile alphabet book to take home that they have created throughout the year.

Our kindergarten class includes four- and five-year old children in a self-contained classroom. We desire to help children grow not only in their beginning academic skills but also in the area of character and loving Christ more and more. Our Kindergarten class currently has a two-year syllabus rotation; one year of studying God’s Creation followed by a year on the Continents of the World. We learn through singing, science experiments, literature, craft projects, and other activities. Each class period includes Show and Tell, time in the gym for active play, and lunch (provided by parents). It is our hope that the ESCHEL kindergarten experience will be a wonderful addition to your home school schedule.
