Kindergarten is an important time in your child’s life.  This is the year during which the foundation of all future learning is built.  Our academic focus in kindergarten is to: 
     - Build strong reading foundation through phonic skills
     - Develop a strong number sense in math
     - and to build confident writers.
Specialty Teacher Model:  We achieve this focus by having students move between three teacher's classrooms who specialize in reading, writing, and math.  Although our teachers are certified in all subjects, having teachers focus on the subject they are most passionate about brings creativity and enthusiasm that is contageous for kids.  The teacher meets with each student individually every day to help students at their level of understanding to fill gaps, reinforce, or challenge students to go further.  While the student is meeting with the teacher, the rest of the class is moving through multi-sensory small group learning labs to reinforce skills using all of their senses. 

Part of our mission is to shepherd and disciple each child to reach his/her fullest potential spiritually, academically, socially, physically and relationally.  

Watch the following Kindergarten Preview to better understand this unique educational model that we emply at CVCS.


Kindergarten Class Options

      on Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday 8:20 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.
Enrichment Options:   
      Additional full-day program
      available on Monday & Thursday


Enrichment classes are offered Monday and Thursday for parents who work on those days and need additional days for their child to be in school or for students who would benefit from more exposure.  Enrichment classes are designed to extend learning concepts taught during core kindergarten days, not to teach new concepts.  Parents may choose 1 or 2-day enrichment options.  This is not a drop-in setting and consists of the full-day.  Students must be enrolled in the chosen enrichment class(es) for the school year.  We offer extended care options for before and after school if needed for an additional charge. 

Kindergarten screening and a parent interview are scheduled once the application is received.

Apply and Enroll early as space is extremely limited:
