Wise Owls (4.5 yrs. by September 1st of the school year)
Children are introduced to the essentials of Kindergarten in preparation for entrance at their local elementary school or private schools in the Bay area. Wise Owl learning includes handwriting, phonics, pre-reading/reading, mathematics, science, social studies, character development, health/hygiene with special awareness of good stewardship – (learning to live with less: reduce/reuse/recycle), chapel, and missions. Our goals for young children are: To learn through active involvement with people, materials, events, and ideas, to become independent, responsible, and confident — ready for school and ready for life, to learn to plan many of their own activities, carry them out, and talk with others about what they have done and what they have learned, and to gain knowledge and skills in important academic, social, and physical areas.
