Messiah Preschool Class Information

Messiah Preschool offers a wide variety of learning opportunities. We want your student to fall in love with learning! Our small class size and teacher ratios enable us to meet the needs of the individual child while meeting the needs of the group. We strive to use developmentally appropriate practices to guide your child to acquire all necessary skills needed to be successful with a lifetime of learning and to have a positive Kindergarten experience.

Our center has three simple rules: Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Neat!

4 and 5 year old Pre-Kindergarten

We offer a 3-day Morning or Afternoon (Monday–Wednesday 8:45–11:30am or 12:30–3:15pm) and a 4-day Morning or Afternoon (Monday–Thursday 8:45–11:30am or 12:30–3:15pm)

Our thematic curriculum builds on the lessons of the Beginner program. However it is a great program for any student just starting school, too.

  • Uppercase and lowercase letter recognition, sounds, numbers and counting, colors and shapes.
  • Name recognition and writing skills continue throughout the year. Numbers and counting leading to simple math concepts are practiced in both group and center time.
  • Fine motor development involves cutting, coloring and early writing and some math skills. D’Nealian penmanship is practiced throughout the class.
  • Socialization is learning to interact with others, using words to communicate feelings, being kind and considerate and learning to be comfortable speaking to others in a small group setting.
  • Creative opportunities are given through exploratory center play and art.
  • Field Trips and Cooking are also a part of the class experience.
  • Class ratio is 2 adults and 14 children per classroom.
