Pre-K Process

Our Pre-K program will offer your child the opportunity to grow and develop in a loving, safe, Christ-centered environment. We will build skills through hands-on learning, centers, and a themed-based curriculum with age appropriate activities. Our classical approach to education is evident in our bible curriculum, where children commit to memory a specific character trait of God for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Children learn through “play” and our daily activities will consist of stories, art and music experiences, building relationships, and exploring God’s world. We are working closely with the established PCA Kindergarten program to ensure your child can easily make the transition.

Providence Christian Academy’s mission is to teach students to seek God’s truth and equip them with the tools for a lifetime of learning. It is our desire to equip our ‘Little Lions’ not just for kindergarten, but to encourage them to love learning for a lifetime.

I ask that you prayerfully consider the next step in joining our Pre-K Program. Please complete an application, available in our school office, if you would like to begin the application process. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
