3K and 4K

For over twenty years, formal Christian education at St. Matthew's Lutheran school has started with our 4K program. In the fall of 2009, we added a 3K program to our early childhood ministry. Enrollment for the following school year begins every January.

Our curriculum is designed to prepare early learners for kindergarten. This preparation involves spiritual learning, language acquisition and exploration, mathematical thinking skills, social and emotional growth, and physical development. A variety of activities are used to engage early learners. Curriculum components include:

Spiritual - God's Word is taught using the Christ Light curriculum found in all classrooms at St. Matthew's. Theme-based units further explore God's creation.

Core Curriculum - The Treasures curriculum for 3K and 4K includes language skills along with social studies, science, math, music, foreign language, and art. Our dramatic play area reflects the themes being taught through Treasures.

Math - Math Connects provides a variety of hands-on math experiences to teach and reinforce early math concepts.

Our 3K program is available to children who are three years old by September 1st. 3K classes meet on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:00 to 11:00 with the option of adding Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

The 4K program has three “core” meeting days on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with an option for adding Tuesday and Thursday as well. Each 4K session meets from 8:00 to 11:00.

Extended care is available for 3K and 4K students from 11:00 until 6:00.

Our kindergarten class meets all day, five days a week.

Kindergartners grow in God’s Word through daily devotions, Bible study, singing, play, nature experiences, and the fine arts.

Language Arts consists of a strong phonics and reading series, an emergent guided reading program, and a writers’ workshop program. Math is taught with the Go Math program. Theme related social studies and science units explore the world God gave us. Art, music, and large motor activities fill out a rich learning environment.

Free Kindergarten intellectual, emotional and social screening is available at anytime to anyone who is interested.
