TPK offers two unique programs: a Kindergarten class and a Pre-K program.
What is Kindergarten?
Kindergarten at TPK is a developmental approach to teaching academics.
- Our Kindergarten class uses the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) objectives with learning goals for literature, math, science, social studies, art, music, and physical education – all with a Biblical perspective.
- We seek to provide a loving, nurturing atmosphere which prepares children socially, emotionally, spiritually, and academically for elementary school.
- The curriculum is designed to be interactive and hands-on, with a balance of instructive approaches in large groups, small groups, and one-on-one.
Students enrolling in Kindergarten must turn 5 on or before September 30 of their Kindergarten year.
What is Pre-K?
Pre-K is a “bridge” between 4’s and Kindergarten. Pre-K students have completed a year of 4’s, and the class is designed for children who would benefit from an extra year of academic and social development.
- This class focuses on building self-confidence, social skills, and independence.
- The main goal is to give children a solid, rich foundation so that they will be ready to launch into reading!
Students enrolling in Pre-K must have completed a 4’s class at TPK or another school. If your child is not currently enrolled in TPK, we will ask to meet your child for an informal assessment to ensure that your child will be well served in this class.
