Preschool 1 (2 – 3 years old)

Our Preschool program focuses on children from age two to their fourth birthday.

We believe that one of the best things a parent can instill in very young children is a love for learning. We suggest that a gentle approach to education be taken during these very early years, because most young children do not have adequate fine motor control to do much work in a workbook-style curriculum. Instead, we recommend a hands-on method.

Although we use very few testing materials in the early years, we do recommend either a test or a checklist before starting instruction in reading. Children lacking in gross motor or fine motor skills will likely face frustration in reading instruction.

Most of the items in this package are non-consumable, if the original items are kept then additional children going through this level would be $130 each.

Preschool 1 includes:

Child’s First Bible

Perfect for taking to church or using at home, young children will love this beautifully illustrated first Bible. A Child’s First Bible is a collection of 125 of the most familiar Bible passages, from both the Old and New Testaments. Beginning with the story of Creation and ending with Revelation, the text is retold in simple words by well-known author and translator Kenneth N. Taylor. With its charming illustrations and clear, inspiring text, A Child’s First Bible is a must for every child’s bookshelf.

Big Thoughts for Little People

Ken Taylor’s best-selling book is now updated with all-new bright and colorful illustrations and larger trim size. Using the alphabet as a learning tool, the easy-to-use format of this beloved picture book connects Bible themes and verses that teach kids ages 3-7 Christian values. Each spread represents a letter of the alphabet and a Christian value or moral lesson beginning with the same letter. Kids are encouraged to find the lesson being modeled (or not) in the illustrations. They are also asked questions to help them apply the lesson to their lives. This book is sure to win the hearts of kids and parents alike.

Singing Bible CDs

Learning facts and characters of the Bible has never been more fun! This CD collection has over 50 original sing-along songs. These songs will take your child on an adventurous walk starting in Genesis and going all the way through Revelations. The memorable lyrics and tongue twisters in these songs will make understanding the Bible an exciting journey. A lyric booklet is included to help you make sure you get all the words and the CDs come in a handy plastic storage case. Your children will have a blast performing for family members, at church, or just belting out the tunes in the car.
