Bethany Lutheran Preschool uses Core Knowledge and supplements with Frontline Phonics for their curriculum. Frontline Phonics is early reading instruction. It offers a fun and easy way to learn letters and sounds with songs as well as introduces blending concepts. The Core Knowledge Preschool Sequence is a set of model guidelines describing fundamental competencies and specific knowledge that, for children can provide a solid, coherent foundation for later learning in kindergarten and beyond.
“Children who attend well-planned high-quality early childhood programs in which curriculum aims are specified and integrated across domains tend to learn more and are better prepared to master the complex demands of formal schooling.” –from Eager to Learn (2001), National Research Council, Washington, D.C.
Bethany Lutheran Preschool takes Core Knowledge and Frontline Phonics a step further and integrates our faith in Jesus into every area. We create an atmosphere of loving acceptance and provide opportunities for children to learn and grow spiritually as well as physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and cognitively.
