keep my words
and store up my commands within you.
Keep my commands and you will live;
guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.
Bind them on your fingers;
write them on the tablet of your heart.

Proverbs 7:1-3

The Kindergarten Program at Valley Christian School is academically focused through appropriate themes and activities making learning engaging and fun. Your child will experience a faith and learning community within an environment that is designed for their success. The tools implemented in our reading program have most of our kindergartners reading before the end of the school year. We offer mathematical concepts with hands on learning activities to provide kinetic learning. Our kindergarten students also participate in specialty classes which include library, music, P.E. and computers. Our teachers incorporate a Christian worldview throughout the curriculum and emphasize biblical lessons and principles to help develop the students’ Christian character.
