Preschool/Daycare & Kindergarten
This is a full-time program for children 1 year through 5 years. Our Preschool/Daycare program includes preschool and full-time care for the hours we are open (7:00 am to 6:00 pm). Preschool begins at 8:30 and continues through the morning hours. Children in this program have lunch and then have a designated nap time. Our afternoons are a little less structured, offering more free time and play time.
Full-time students have the opportunity to attend on days the part-time students would otherwise be off (Teacher Workdays, Christmas Break, Spring Break, and during the Summer).
Currently, we also offer parents the opportunity to sign up with Amazing Athletes. This is a once per week activity offered at an extra cost paid by the parent directly to the sponsor.
Our center closely follows Spartanburg District 2 Schools as far as scheduling Teacher Workdays, Christmas Break, Spring Break. We also follow District 2 for all Weather Delays and Closings.
Our 5 Year Old Kindergarten Program is from 8:30am - 2:00pm,
Monday through Friday. The Kindergarten program at Covenant
is a wonderful educational opportunity for your child. The fact
that it takes place in a Christian environment is an added bonus.
Our student/teacher ratio is one of the strong points of our
program, as we will only register up to fifteen children in the class.
Miss Anna is in her fifth year with us this school year. She is a
certified teacher with over 5 years experience in elementary education in the public school system. Miss Anna has maintained her certification and continues to be a fantastic asset to our program. She, with her Assistant Teacher, Miss Abby, make a great team, and they both have a tremendous love for teaching children.
In order to prepare your child for first grade, the South Carolina State Standards for Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies, drive our curriculum. Our day also includes Bible stories and Scripture memory verses to help our students experience the love of our magnificent God. The year is organized
into unit themes which will incorporate our learning objectives and serve as
"springboards" for inquiry based learning. Our language arts curriculum
includes group activities, independent reading and writing, guided reading,
literacy stations, and writer's workshop. Math lessons are taught using
manipulatives, whole and small group instruction, and math stations. Our
focus is on conceptual learning to make sure your child truly understands
the "why" of math. We also have the luxury of being able to expose the class
to many educational and cultural experiences by utilizing a wide variety of
field trips and special programs.
Ms. Autumn began teaching Music with our students just this semester! We are so excited to have our Music Program growing again for our 3's, 4's, and 5k students. Classes visit the music room once per week for singing and dancing! Children have fun with seasonal music as well as theme based interactive songs. We also have a Christmas program each year. This is a special tradition at Covenant for family and friends to hear our students sing and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Every other week, our 4's and 5k students attend Chapel in the Sanctuary. Chapel is a great experience for our children as it includes hearing a bible story from the Pastor of the church. Pastor Heather visits our 3 year olds every other week to share the same bible story with them in their classrooms.
