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.
Ms. Tanya Marlowe will be in her first year teaching with us this
school year. She is a certified teacher with over 7 years experience in elementary education in the public school system. Ms. Tanya will be a fantastic asset to our program. We are excited to have her team up with our Assistant Teacher, Ms. Abby, who has worked with our kindergarteners for several years. They both have a tremendous love for Jesus and for teaching little ones so we are looking forward to a great school year.
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
Ms. Autumn began teaching Music with our students in January 2023. Her musical background and her love for the Lord brings a special element to our Music Program 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.
