Reasons Religious School Might Be Right For Your Kids

4 Reasons To Do Pre-K At A Christian School

There are many different pre-k programs in most communities. Some are associated with the public school system, while others are private. Some programs are large, while others are small. Choosing the right program is a significant decision that can be difficult. But when looking for a pre-kindergarten program for your little one, consider a Christian-based program. There are numerous reasons to do so. Here are a few of them. 

1. Christian Pre-K Helps Build A Faith Foundation

If raising your child with a strong faith foundation is vital to you, there is no better place to get that assistance with building that platform than a Christian pre-k program. Once there, they will learn about God's love. Unlike public and some other private settings, teachers in a Christian-based program are allowed to infuse their faith into their curriculum. 

The teachers teach with God front and center. Many programs offer devotion, prayer, religious songs, and praise as a part of a typical day. Some programs attend church or chapel regularly. 

2. Christian Pre-K Gets Your Child School Ready

Christian pre-kindergarten programs offer well-rounded lessons, like any other programs, along with their Christian curriculum. Most programs offer a curriculum including the following:

  • Social skills
  • Literacy
  • Math
  • Science
  • Art
  • Physical education

These skills will prepare your child for the next year or grade. 

3. Christian Schools Teach Christian Values

When you look at other programs, some of the missing things are Christian values. 

In a Christian pre-k school, your child will also learn about many of the following Christian values they will take throughout their lives. Some of these include:

  • Responsibility
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Courage
  • Hope
  • Peace

These values will teach your child how to act inside and outside of school. 

4. Christian Teachers Will Model Christian Principles

Young children often model the adults they are around the most. Once your child starts pre-k, they will spend more awake hours during the week with their teachers than they will with you. Because of the time they will spend with school teachers, it is important that their teachers model the Christian principles you want your children to model.

They will be exposed to how the teachers interact with them and how they interact with each other. These interactions will teach your children how to interact with others in Christian love.
