Using The Principle Approach® (historic, biblical method of education that helped forge our nation), Dayspring Christian Academy’s Full Day Kindergarten classes provide a refreshing answer to families who seriously desire to launch their child’s education in an academically rigorous, loving, nurturing environment.Ready to Discover More?
At Dayspring Christian Academy, we provide three levels of early childhood education:
Kindergarten is a 3-day program that comes with an optional 2 additional enrichment days (creating a full week, 5-day Kindergarten program).
There are clear distinctions that only a Principle Approach® school offers. This philosophy of education finds its very core in the Word of God. Ours is not simply a cursory nod at the Bible or a rote recitation of biblical directives. Rather, our approach involves a dynamic search for and application of biblical truth as it relates to this life and beyond.
This level is appropriate for those students who are 5 years old through early 6 years of age developmentally at the start of the school year.
This intentional method of teaching and learning trains students to think and reason, not just regurgitate facts.
The program is activity-oriented, but more emphasis is placed on paper-and-pencil activities and structured seat work. The seeds of wisdom are sown in every academic subject to inspire a love of learning and appreciation for God’s hand in all we do.
In addition to the curriculum of the 3-day program mentioned above, parents may supplement their child’s learning by enrolling them in our 2 day/week I.D.E.A.! program to create a 5 full-day Kindergarten schedule.
Standing for Inspire, Discover, Explore, Achieve, IDEA! is Dayspring Christian Academy’s supplemental Kindergarten for 5- and 6-year-olds. This optional 4th and 5th day of learning-enriched Kindergarten takes place in a hands-on environment and is focused on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math). Having the class size capped at 17 means there’s more 1:1 time for your child with the teacher.
The IDEA! program is a stand-alone program which takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays through the school year. The program may be added to our 3-day prekindergarten or kindergarten programs to create a full-day, 5-day kindergarten program.
Yes! Visiting Dayspring is a great way to get your questions answered, learn more about the school, meet the kindergarten teachers and faculty, and see how we can meet your child's individual educational needs.
Dayspring’s Kindergarten classroom is large, bright, welcoming, and friendly. Appropriate security measures are in place to ensure that our families feel confident that their precious children are safe, loved, and well-cared for.
