Early Education

Set Your Child Up for a Promising Future

We understand how important the first years of school are for your child. That’s why we aim to create a nurturing environment that lays the foundation for educational success for years to come. At Coulee Christian, we want to be a place that sparks each student’s passion for learning and love for the Lord.

Our early education program focuses on social, emotional, and physical development in a structured environment. Each student will learn cognitive and social skills through imaginative play and inventive thinking, all while experiencing a culture of love, learning, and understanding of God’s Word.

A Heart and Mind Ready for Growth

Experiencing Christ’s Love

Bible lessons are woven into each day, guiding students to know Jesus’ love for them as individuals and for all of His creation. We use the Purposeful Design Early Education Bible program to introduce our youngest students to Scripture and begin developing a Biblical worldview.

Little learners in 3K and 4K dive into fun activities daily that help them develop self-care skills and improve their small and large muscle control. Our teachers mix playtime with structured learning moments that are just right for their developmental stage. Pathways for Preschool and Footsteps for Fours from BJU Press are our go-to guides to ensure students have the best learning adventures.

We realize the importance of learning social skills and emotional regulation at this age. That’s why we provide a supportive atmosphere for our preschoolers to navigate their emotions, interact with others, grasp rules, and tackle social hiccups. We rely on the Zones of Regulation to guide our teaching and provide helpful visuals along the way.

Through engaging interactions with both staff and fellow students, our little learners hone their receptive and expressive language skills. Our dedicated teachers carefully craft learning experiences that draw upon resources from Pathways for Preschool and Footsteps for Fours.

Our preschoolers develop a strong academic foundation with age-appropriate and inventive phonics, writing, and math lessons. Students receive daily instruction using Pathways for Preschool and Footsteps for Fours as primary resources from BJU Press.

A Few of Their Favorite Things

Every day is an adventure for pre-k kiddos at Coulee Christian, but there are a few extra special things students look forward to. These highlights include Family Nights, Grandparents’ Day, field trips, Formational Learning Experiences (ask us about this!), and community service opportunities.
