Chapel

Children participate in periodic chapels. Bethlehem's Pastor gives a message, children learn a Bible verse and accompany praise songs with musical instruments.

Alphabet Program

Children learn the names and sounds of each alphabet letter during the year. Puppets tell the story featuring the letter of the week, and children practicing tracing and writing the letter. There is a craft featuring the letter.

 

Children learn three-letter words and sight words. They are encouraged to draw and write in the communication center. Many thematic activities support our prereading and prewriting program.

Bringing in firefighter hats and tools, a castle and dress-up clothes, a McDonald's Restaurant or a carpentry center provides additional opportunities for socialization and play.
