About Our Curriculum
We have been using the BJU Press curriculum for several years and it has been a fantastic resource. Our curriculum focuses on major areas of learning for the young child through thematic units. Development of new skills and understanding is encouraged through a variety of activities. The 3-4's class uses the Pathways for Preschool subject kit and the 4-5's class use the Footsteps for Fours subject kit.
Pathways for Preschool
Pathways for Preschool (2nd ed.) encourages three-year-old students to love learning. The one-volume Teacher’s Edition helps prepare children for kindergarten by reinforcing their pre-reading, phonemic, and letter recognition skills, along with introducing them to math, social studies, and science through age-appropriate songs, rhymes, games, crafts, circle time for groups, and centers for each child. The additional Activity Packet and Visuals give each student the opportunity to develop their eye-hand coordination using various techniques. The program contains 12 months of teaching material and each lesson is designed to be taught over a period of 2 to 5 days.
Footsteps for Fours
Prepare your preschool child for a lifetime of learning with the Footsteps for Fours curriculum from BJU Press. The colorful curriculum is filled with activities that will excite your child about learning. It uses a center-based, hands-on approach to learning in order to give each child to learn at his own developmental level and ability. Each lesson incorporates age-appropriate lessons in language arts, prereading skills, phonics, math, handwriting, social studies, and science. The curriculum also includes optional lessons for advanced children who are ready to read.
