A full-day Kindergarten program focuses on helping children grow in their faith and develop a Christ-like attitude toward learning and others. The Kindergarten curriculum offers opportunities for exploration of ideas and is designed to build an academic foundation for future learning success.
Religion (“Jesus Time”): RCLS Kindergartners hear the Word of God, study Bible stories, and learn what it means to love God and others. Ultimately, teachers offer daily Biblical instruction in an environment that is characterized by grace, lending students a foundational understanding of their identities and values in Christ.
Language Arts: Children experience a print-rich curriculum in Kindergarten. Early learning focuses on phonics skills and phonemic awareness, high-frequency words, vocabulary, and reading comprehension skills. Speaking, writing, and listening skills are high priorities as children learn to function and communicate in a classroom setting.
Math: Children explore numbers and number sense. They practice counting skills, patterning, sorting, measuring, spatial concepts, and beginning addition and subtraction.
Science: Children explore God’s world with topics related to all branches of science. Units from life science, physical science, earth science, and health and the human body offer age-appropriate discovery of the scientific world.
Social Studies: Children study areas that relate to pride in their country, and they develop an understanding of history, their families, and the modern world around them.
In addition to these core subjects, Kindergarten students receive weekly or biweekly instruction in Spanish, technology, music theory and choir, visual art, and physical education.
