tk & Kindergarten

OUR youngest learners

TK and Kindergarten provide the necessary foundation for the spiritual, academic, and social development of each child. Children become learners through discovery and play and engage in a wide range of developmental activities that produce a life-long love of learning. 

kindergarten curriculum

The reading/language arts program emphasizes a strong phonics base and beginning reading and writing. Biblical truth is taught through Old and New Testament stories, character trait studies, and Bible memorization. History is introduced through topics on the family, communities past and present, and patriotism. Using hands-on activities, students develop an understanding of beginning mathematical concepts. The science curriculum is based on the exploration of God’s creation.


The purpose of our Transitional Kindergarten program is to provide families with an excellent environment that prepares their child for Kindergarten spiritually, mentally, and socially. Children must be four by September 1 and developmentally ready for a learning program, including following directions and enjoying a structured learning environment. TK is a good option for five-year-olds who are not yet ready for Kindergarten. TK observes the full-day school schedule, and students wear uniforms.

At Christian Elementary East, our TK programs are located in the Kids Ministry/Jr. High Building on lower campus. Kindergarten programs are located with First Grade across Greenfield Drive on our Junior Campus, with age-appropriate classroom and playground facilities and a walk-in drop-off system.

At Christian South, K4 classes provide four-year-olds and young five-year-olds the extra year of preparation they need before kindergarten.


It is with sadness that we share that the co-founder of our school district, Dr. Beverly LaHaye, passed away on Sunday, April 14. She was 94 years old.

Beverly was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ all the days of her life, and God used her in extraordinary ways to make a difference in the world around her. Along with her husband Dr. Tim LaHaye, she worked to establish Christian Unified Schools at a time when Christian education was in its infancy. She had a vision to meet the need for God-honoring curriculum and teachers who modeled Christlikeness to the students in their care, and she worked tirelessly to that end.

In addition to her influence on our school district, Beverly was also the author of many books, the founder of Concerned Women for America, and a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She was a faithful and treasured member of Shadow Mountain Community Church, where she was honored recently during the GirlTime women’s event. As the audience stood to applaud, Beverly pointed upward, giving all of the glory to the God she served.
