Preschool 2 (3 – 4 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 $260 each.

Preschool 2 includes:

New Bible in Pictures for Little Eyes

Geared for young children, this update of a popular Moody title that has sold over 1.5 million copies is written by Kenneth N. Taylor and beautifully illustrated by Annabel Spenceley. The 112 stories of the Old and 72 of the New Testaments are each presented with an illustration that captures the essence of the event, a simplified narrative (with the actual Scripture references) for reading aloud to your children, reinforcing questions, and a prayer to connect your children with the lesson presented. A wonderful way to introduce young children to what the Bible has to offer to us all.
