This program offers students an opportunity to prepare for elementary school in a loving, high quality program. Taught by certified and experienced teachers, our kindergarten classes build a strong foundation in Christian education while developing the fundamentals needed to succeed in school. 

 

CCS offers full and half day programs and small class sizes. Our half day Kindergarten program is unique in the Tallahassee area, in that it is a four hour morning program. (8:30-12:30). The Kindergarten and First Grade teachers work together to make sure that a student leaving the CCS Kindergarten program is fully prepared academically to enter first grade.  Children participate in developmentally appropriate activities that promote spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth. Students must be five years old by September 1st to enroll. Our Kindergarten program is fully accredited by SACS and ACSI.

What is Christian Education?


Christian education is distinctive in that it presents all subject areas in the context of God’s view of the world. When a student is taught from a Biblical worldview, by a teacher with a personal relationship with Jesus, the result is Christian Education. The student develops higher level thinking skills, character qualities, and a work/study ethic based on an understanding of what the Bible has to say about life. All of his life choices are made based on his understanding of the Bible and the plan God has for his life.

Students are encouraged to develop their intellect to its fullest potential through cultivating the habits of mind that enable them to become life long learners. It is our desire that students who leave CCS will encounter and impact today’s culture with the ability to think Biblically, defend their faith and manage their personal and professional lives in a way that will bring honor to God.

What are the characteristics of a typical kindergartner?


The average Kindergarten student is enthusiastic, helpful and wants to do what is expected of him. He needs attention, affection and encouragement. His energy is evident in his fidgeting and short attention span. Sometimes, his opposite extremes of emotions and behavior can be surprising. 

 

 

During this year, you can expect your Kindergartner to:

 

  • Develop a positive, realistic self-image
  • Learn to respect himself
  • Begin to understand his own uniqueness
  • Gain awareness of his feelings
  • Learn to express feelings
  • Begin to learn from his mistakes

Overall, Kindergartners are all about the business of changing!

 

 

 

Lamentations 3:21-24

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
