Curriculum

Since area school districts’ kindergarten classroom curriculum can vary, PECC has taken the common curriculum and incorporated them in our lesson plans and activities. Our teachers are consistent with including and implementing the following into their classroom curriculum:

  • Foster kindergarten readiness (especially in our Prekindergarten classes)
  • Language development
  • Pre reading and reading skills (for those who are beginning to read)
  • Fine and gross motor skill development
  • Build self-confidence
  • Social skill development
  • Music and movement
  • Art
  • Science
  • Math
  • Writing
  • Discovery centers
  • Circle time (weather, flag, Bible verse — which reinforces values, calendar, introduction of letter, theme, etc.)
  • Cooking
  • Story time
  • Theme days (Beach Day, Pajama Day, Western Day, Chiefs Day, etc.)
  • Library once a week
  • Service projects to help those in need (preparing meals for homeless families, cards, food drive, etc.)
  • Speech and hearing screening through Children’s Therapy Group
  • Mad Science Program for our Prekindergarten children
  • Ernie Miller Nature Center program for Preschool children

  • Picture Days for all PECC children
