Our Preschool program is structured to encourage three- and early-four-year olds as they naturally build skills and understanding in the spiritual, the social, and the physical realms. Our play and exploration-based curriculum allows for lots of guided discovery and experience learning. The activities planned for them build confidence and character, a love of learning, and a budding love for God.  Our littlest Knights are cared for and loved in a way that teaches them tangibly about the love of the Father.

As with all of our academic programming, the Preschool program is designed to work in tandem with the naturally-occurring developmental milestones of its children, while at the same time recognizing the uniqueness of each child and striving to meet his or her individual needs. This first learning experience enables them to build upon their own sense of wonder and to develop a joy for learning.


Pre-Kindergarten at The Covenant School combines spiritual and academic goals for a foundation of learning success. Our experienced teachers use research-based curriculum and differentiated teaching methods to meet the individual needs of the child. Teachers provide students with a welcoming and nurturing environment that meets the sensory needs of young children. Students are guided through Biblical scriptures and stories where they learn more about God’s love and their place in His Kingdom. The Pre-Kindergarten students are an important part of The Covenant School student body! Pre-Kindergarten is wholly integrated within the school environment through participation in all the enrichment courses. Each Pre-Kindergartener has an upper-school buddy for Thursday chapel, reading time, and other special activities. The Pre-Kindergarten students develop excitement and curiosity about learning, and they build their skills through literacy, movement, exploration, play, and music.

  • Our daughter comes home singing songs, singing the months and days of the week, and telling us all about her friends. She sings at the grocery store, in the car, home, everywhere! The words “I don’t want to go to school today” have not come from her mouth since starting Covenant. She walks into school with confidence every day. It is such a blessing to know she is thriving and that we made the right decision as parents.
