The 4-year old program is an extension of the 3 year-old program. Students are introduced to letter and number concepts in an easy-going, age-appropriate setting. OSLP&K Curriculum follows the Illinois State Board of Education’s Guidelines for Early Learning. Students are introduced to phonics concepts through the ABEKA Curriculum Program (www.abeka.com). ABEKA uses a phonics based program that incorporates the use of the letter/sound concept into all aspects of the curriculum. Students experience bible stories, circle time, centers, phonics, writing, language development, & math concepts in a caring and Christian environment. The program is designed to give your child a solid academic foundation for entrance to Kindergarten.

Our Kindergarten program is an extension of the ABEKA Pre-Kindergarten program described above. The curriculum uses an intensive phonics program taught in a systematic, step-by-step reading plan based upon the sounds of each letter. The writing program correlates directly with the phonics program with students learning and reviewing phonics concepts as they practice correct letter formation.

In addition, students are taught counting skills, number recognition, and number concepts up to 100, all focusing on the Core Curriculum in reading and math. OSLP&K uses the Illinois State Board of Educations guidelines and benchmarks of the Core Curriculum for Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, Music, & Art.

Students have daily Bible lessons and enjoy a nurturing, Christian Environment. Kindergarten students attend Chapel Time on a weekly basis where they sing songs, learn Bible verses and pray with Pastors Schlote and Bowman.
