Preschool Curriculum

Kids are active learners and our preschool classes provide instruction that sets the foundation for successful academic careers. In a nurturing, Christ-centered environment, each student gains skills in the following areas:

  • Fine and gross motor skills

  • Spiritual growth

  • Phonics and language concepts

  • Math concepts

  • Social and Interpersonal relationships

Our preschool classes learn through small group activities, music enrichment, hands-on activities, art, dramatic play, and field trips.


WCA preschool faculty have college training and possess a genuine love for children and teaching children. The maximum student-teacher ratio is 6 children per 1 adult in K2 and 10 children per 1 adult in K3 and K4. Preschool classes at Westover Christian Academy have a lead teacher and aide; some classes share a floating aide.
