This is an excellent program providing a well rounded, highly academic learning experience. The Language Arts Program uses a mostly phonitical approach to teach reading, writing, and spelling. The children leave the Kindergarten program reading one to two grade levels above their public school peers. The program also daily incorporates grade appropriate literature, poetry, and Bible passage memorization. The children learn through whole group instruction, independent practice, and small group reading. Mathematics is another important part of the program. Children learn counting, time, money, patterns, comparisons, numerals to 100, problem solving, equations (to name a few topics) through whole group, small group, and individual practice. Children also receive daily instruction in Science, Social Studies, and Bible. This is a highly academic program that also gives students time to play, experience the Arts through Music and Art class, begin to learn a foreign language, and begin to understand the importance and fun of physical education. The class sizes are small and intimate. Children make good friendships that may last throughout their years at Providence Academy.
