DESCRIPTION OF BUTTERFLIES CLASS:
This program helps to prepare students for Kindergarten with a high emphasis on the Arts for a full sensory program including Arts, Fine Arts, Music, Drama, Dance, and Culinary experiences in a developmentally correct environment in both indoor and outdoor classrooms. One hour of the day (1:20 pm to 2:20 pm) they transition to the Fireflies class (Intermediate Kindergarten) where they are introduced to Science, Language and Math in a multi-sensory hands-on learning environment.
For the past 35 years, children in these classes have been prepared for Kindergarten. If they are not ready because of development, our staff will speak about development with the parents during the quarterly reviews for Parent/Teacher or more often if necessary.
Valley Christian School has listed Neighborhood Christian Center an an "Exemplary Preschool." We have partnered with one of the best schools in the area, Valley Christian Schools and we commit to prepare our students for Kindergarten with excellence. At its discretion, VCS will present Exemplary Preschool Scholar Award(s) at the preschool’s commencement, each Award valued at $1,000, for qualified preschool graduates who have demonstrated proficiency of required kindergarten readiness skills for VCS and have received an acceptance letter for admission to Valley Christian Schools.
