At Sonrise Academy, we use the Horizons Preschool programs, which are based upon the most perfect source available, the Bible. As teachers, we desire the best for our students. Our goal in early childhood education is to develop the best style of education, the optimum learning environment and to establish within the child the correct foundation emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually.
This class is a great introduction to school for any child who is three years old by September 1st. This class focuses on colors and shapes, recognizing upper and lower case letters and learning numbers. The Bright Beginnings class offers Bible time, gym, art and music class.
Our Pre-K or Preschool class is geared for those students who are four years old by September 1st and will be going to kindergarten the following school year. We focus on preparing students for kindergarten by emphasizing phonics, math and writing. In addition to academic subjects, students experience Bible time, gym, art and music class.
