Hero Treatment

We focus on the individual needs of each child.

Our nurturing environment helps young children grow and develop spiritually, emotionally, physically, mentally and socially through age appropriate activities. 

Programs

SRVCA’s program is designed to provide a hands-on learning environment to meet the needs of the whole child, with an emphasis on building a Christ-centered self-image. Learning centers are extensively furnished with toys, manipulatives, and educational materials to cultivate a young child’s eagerness to learn. Daily child-focused biblical activities, interactive environments, and as many media of creative expression as possible, will provide developmental opportunities for children to thrive. We partner with parents to help preschoolers know and experience God’s great love for them. 

CLASSROOMS

Our classrooms provide fun, age-appropriate learning environments that allow preschoolers to safely and confidently explore their world.

2 YEAR OLD CLASSES

ABOUT THIS CLASS

The Two Year Old class offers the first preschool experience to your child. The Purple Room provides a loving, nurturing environment where learning is developmentally appropriate and great fun. Our teacher-child ratio is 2:10, allowing us time to give your child plenty of one-on-one attention. Our curriculum is well thought out and implemented, yet flexible enough to allow us to meet specific needs of your little one.

Our day starts with plenty of time to play and explore the classroom. Your child might choose to paint, play in the pretend kitchen, build with blocks, engage with our assortment of vehicles, or discover our freshly made play dough. 

During circle time, our theme-based curriculum is presented in an engaging way. We begin with prayer and songs, learn numbers 1-5, plus shapes and colors. Each week the children enjoy a Bible lesson, taught in an age-appropriate way, to remind them how loved they are by God. Our theme-based art projects encourage children’s creativity, and their abundant energy finds an outlet on our Purple Room only playground. 

We love making music and we love to sing. It won't be long before your preschooler teaches you the songs we sing. We believe in building a bridge between home and school. The stronger that bridge is built the more naturally the learning flows. With a strong foundation of love and warmth coupled with an age-appropriate curriculum, the Purple Room will provide your little one with a wonderful start to school.

Imaginary play takes place in and around our playhouses which have an ample supply of tools and dishes.

THEME PROJECTS

Every week there is a teacher guided theme project that corresponds to the classroom theme. Some of our themes include Farm, Fall, Christmas, and Sea Life. Your child will learn to follow directions, gather insight into the theme, and create a special project to take home.

BIBLE

Your child will hear an age appropriate Bible story every week. Big, colorful books are used, along with the teaching of many Bible songs. Our emphasis is on how much God loves each child. 

FINE MOTOR

Teacher-directed activities strengthens children's fingers. For example, children squeeze and roll out play dough, use tongs for picking up small objects, cut with scissors, and string small objects.

SRVCA preschool has a talented music teacher who teaches our children many lively and engaging songs. Different songs for different themes provide constant variety, as well as old favorites.

Numbers and counting are involved in everything our preschoolers do. In addition, a teacher-directed Math Program focuses children on sets, sorting, identifying shapes, and the number concepts 1-7.

PERCEPTUAL MOTOR

Teacher-directed activities require children to use their large muscles: crawling through tunnels, tossing beanbags, walking like animals, hopping, jumping, and catching balls.

4 & 5 YEAR OLD CLASSES

ABOUT THIS CLASS

SRVCA Preschool provides different attendance options for children in the Four/Five Year Old classes (see schedule below). With a teacher/student ratio of 1:8, our inviting classrooms are designed to encourage physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development. The curriculum is an age appropriate balance of academics and play, presented by experienced teachers in such a way that your child has fun while learning. Educational materials cover the tables and are changed frequently in order to provide new exploratory experiences. The playground, including a planter box garden tended by the children, offers the opportunity to ride bikes, climb and slide, dig in the sand, and play with hoops and balls. Imaginary play takes place in and around our playhouses, all of which have an ample supply of tools and dishes. After completing our Four/Five Year Old classes, your child will be prepared to move on to Kindergarten.

THEME PROJECTS

New themes will be introduced in the classroom throughout the year, such as Community Helpers, Farm, Dinosaurs, and Ecology. 

BIBLE

Every week the children hear an engaging Bible story told with songs, props or drama. The children learn that God loves them and will never leave them. Several times during the school year, the children attend chapel to hear a Bible story. This gives them a chance to participate in worship and experience the beauty of God's word in a new way.

MUSIC

We love music. While songs are incorporated in much of the curriculum, a music teacher meets the class each week. She has a wide repertoire of songs that go along with classroom themes.

MATH

Much of our math curriculum focuses on spatial relationships, shapes and numbers. Children engage in activities that involve the numbers 1-30. Functional math includes working with clocks, yardsticks, and money.

PERCEPTUAL MOTOR

Teachers will direct children toward large muscles activities: walking on balance beams, bowling, walking like animals, hopping, jumping and catching balls. Movement and rhythm activities set to music are also included in this curriculum.

PRE-READING AND LANGUAGE

Since the public schools expect letter recognition for Kindergarteners, we have added a pre-reading segment to complement our Language curriculum. In pre-reading, the children receive many opportunities to learn to recognize the uppercase and lowercase letters. The Handwriting Without Tears learning kits provide many hands-on activities. Our curriculum emphasizes writing uppercase and lowercase letters and recognizing the sound that each letter makes. Many activities are included which make learning our uppercase and lowercase ABCs fun, such as hunting for letters in rice or shredded paper. Some sight words are introduced, including word families.

SCIENCE

This is a hands-on time of learning where the children will explore concepts like sinking, floating, and magnification. Some of the year’s exciting activities are building volcanoes and launching rockets.

NUTRITION

Children learn about healthy food choices, as well as how to cook simple foods such as pizza, applesauce or muffins.
