Curriculum

Bible:

Each day children have the opportunity to sing worship songs, listen to a devotion and pray.  Biblical truths are also woven into the programs throughout the year.

Language Arts:

At Martin Reformed Church Preschool we use Zoo-Phonics, a fun, engaging program that helps students learn letters and sounds.  The program matches an animal and motion to each letter and sound.  Students learn lowercase letters in order from A to Z.  This program engages students' eyes, ears, mouth and body as they learn, which makes learning fun and helps all types of learners.
