Early Education: Prekindergarten & Kindergarten
Legacy's Early Education program (Prekindergarten and Kindergarten) develops emergent readers and problem-solvers through activities based on phonics, one-to-one correspondence, number and letter recognition, as well as early math concepts including counting, pattern recognition, and simple math. Likewise, each child’s natural curiosity is welcomed and encouraged through creative play, field trips and hands-on activiites. Age-appropriate lessons in history and science are an added compliment to the program.
Legacy teaches early reading using "Reading with TLC" which is comprised of 2 creative programs, Lively Letters and Sight Words You Can See. Lively Letters improves phonemic awareness, speech production, and phonics, while Sight Words You Can See facilitates the training of abstract sight words that don't follow the rules of phonics, such as "come," and "want."
The daily schedule for Pre-K and Kindergarten is an active one that matches the energy of the students. In addition to lessons, structured play, and personal activity time, students also participate in daily enrichment activities that span a variety of subjects such as art, music, physical education, health, Bible, Spanish, computer and library.
Legacy's Early Education Program is committed to providing a sound educational and Christian experience that not only stimulates learning and development, but also promotes spiritual and social growth through a supportive staff and nurturing environment.
