Preschool - Bonny Bears
Ages 3 and 4
* The Bonny Bear class is our preschool classroom. The curriculum develops pre-reading, pre-writing, and beginning math skills, as well as social interaction and creative processes. We have one special theme each month (example: In the Circus Ring, Keeping Healthy, Dandy Dinosaurs). Each month, we also focus on other concepts and topics that will enhance our learning. We have a monthly number, pair of opposites, nursery rhymes, color, shape, season/holiday, fairy tale, and most importantly, Bible story. God is a very important part of our classroom. He is spoken of openly as the personal and caring God that He is. We make an attempt to always acknowledge Him in our classroom as well as in every aspect of our lives.
