A successful academic program should be both engaging and inspiring. Exploratory learning is a method that fosters natural curiosity and establishes a firm foundation for a lifetime of learning. Therefore, at LIFE School, our teachers make the extra effort to create and prepare lessons that are engaging and uniquely memorable. We encourage students to pursue creative thinking and expression, delve deeply into topics, and develop an enthusiasm for learning that can unlock countless opportunities.
A holistic education
Pre-K & Kindergarten, ages 3-5
LIFE follows a thematically planned curriculum, encouraging student growth via engaging and age learning centers and activities. Language development, math skills, and exploratory creation (science) are all integrated within thematic units.
We use guided play, tactile centers, games, dramatic play, music, and art. Library resources supplement the curriculum and enhance a love for reading.
Our curricular themes incorporate character development, addressing topics such as sharing, cooperating, showing love, and extending forgiveness.
Children take part in a variety of age-appropriate activities, such as:
- Working with paint, play dough, crayons, blocks, and other age appropriate manipulative materials.
- Story time, poems, drama, and books.
- Learning to share, take turns, plan, work, and play with others.
- Learning to respond rhythmically to music through listening and singing.
- Learning good health habits.
- Activities for large muscle development like crawling, jumping, running, and climbing outside.
- Time and room to explore, experiment, discover, play, and be a child.
Core Subjects include English, Spanish Language and Literature, Mathematics, Natural Science, Social Studies, Bible Literacy, and Values. The curriculum integrates Art, Music, Technology, and Physical Education. Apart from Spanish Language and Culture, all classes are 100% English immersion. Since learning is never in isolation, we have cross-curricular units and projects throughout the year. Excursions, special guests, presentations, and technology help to bring learning alive.
Literacy is foundational to all other subjects. In these early years, we want students to discover a love of reading, the joy of learning, and competency in reading, thinking and communicating with one another. Students will engage with a wide variety of authentic books that appeal to children’s intellectual curiosity and stimulate their learning.
Finally, we believe that the binding force in all learning is understanding that God and His Word are foundational for truth, morals, and ethics. We believe that as students learn the lessons of the Bible, they will learn to apply Christian values to every aspect of their lives.
