HCS' Christian Kindergarten Program
HCS Kindergarten is a 5-day, all-day Kindergarten designed to equip students with the academic foundations for elementary school as well as the spiritual building blocks of biblical truth. We partner with families to nurture young minds and hearts, focusing on the needs and gifts of each student as a unique individual.
Building Blocks of Truth
Biblical principles are woven into everything we do at Harrisburg Christian School, including Kindergarten. We want to equip our youngest students with an understanding of who God is and what the Bible says. Kindergarten students enjoy a daily Bible story and work on memorizing a Bible verse each week, often incorporating music. Our teachers are also committed Christians and serve as role models for impressionable minds.
A Whole-Family Approach
We believe it is essential to work alongside families. Kindergarten teachers send out a weekly newsletter telling about what’s happening in the classroom and what’s coming up next week. We also welcome parents as classroom volunteers.
A Day in The Life
DAILY Core Classes
Daily core classes include literacy, math, social studies/science and Bible. Though the teaching is play-based, our kindergarten teachers are passionate about helping students to build academic skills for the rest of elementary school. They utilize a variety of learning styles to help each student succeed. Center groups help to challenge each student where they are.
Kids should be active and have fun! Kindergarten students have 2 recesses each day to promote healthy activity and outdoor play.
The kindergarten curriculum includes several specials on a 6-day cycle: music, art, PE, tech ed., and library. These specials give students the opportunity to explore creative skills and to be exposed to sports and technology in a guided environment.
