Preschool

A Day in the Life

Shoreline Christian Preschool is available as a three-day or five-day option. The three-day program meets on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings. Our 5-day program continues on Thursday and Friday mornings. The additional two days have the same structure, schedule, and preschool teachers as the current three-day program.

A typical day in the life of a Shoreline Christian preschooler is full of fun activity.

Our experienced staff support the development of our students through learning, play and downtime. The schedule on a typical day might look something like this:

9:00-9:20: Letter of the Week, Bible Story, and Opening Prayer
9:25-10:25: Learning Centers/Pre-reading Class
10:30-10:40: Cleanup
10:45-11:00: Snack Time
11:00-11:15: Focus Time
11:15-11:30: Music Time
11:35-12:00: Outdoors Time
12:00: Dismissal

Hours and Arrangement: Five-day Preschool meets Monday through Friday. Three-day Preschool meets on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Both programs run from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in the basement of Shoreline Christian Reformed Church, adjacent to Shoreline Christian School. Our program is designed for children 3 to 5 years old who are toilet trained.

Topical Learning

Our topical focus lets our students explore God’s world through various themes integrated into activities. Topic areas include: Sea life, community helpers, colors, shapes, numbers, seasons and holidays, magnets, plant life, animals, transportation, outer space, bodies and senses, and more.

Bible stories help students learn from the Old and New Testament about God, His people and God’s love for us.

Activities

Activities reinforce concepts while making learning fun for students: Reading readiness classes, weekly physical education classes, Show-and-Tell time, and a wide range of free-choice activities, such as puzzles, games, sand and water tables, play dough, writing, work bench, play house, dress up, blocks, cooking experiences, and a variety of other experiences that encourage children to collaborate and play together.

Physical play in our outside play area and in our gymnasium develops students coordination and balance.  

Enrichment

Art is explored in the art area with a wide variety of media. Students are encouraged to have fun and express their creativity without an emphasis on a specific finished product.

Music gives students time to learn songs and basic music principles, play instruments, and enjoy God's gift of music.

Field trips add adventure to learning and may include monthly visits to the public library for story hour and to check out books, train or ferry boat trips, visits to the pumpkin patch, puppet shows, visits to Pacific Science Center or Seattle Aquarium, plays and more.
