Personal Tour

Due to Covid-19 this year we are offering a more personal way to get to know Borculo Christian and what makes it special.

This year rather than an open house night you will be able to schedule a time to come in and meet with the staff as well as get a tour of the facility.

This will provide a safe way for you and your family to explore and see first hand what makes BCS a special place.

You can contact the office or Mr.Sievers at any time to set-up a personal tour of BCS. We look forward to meeting with you and your family.

Pre-K FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How old should my child be to register for Pre-K?

Students should be 5 by December 1 of that school year. 

What days do the Pre-K students meet?

Students have class 2 full-days a week. They meet every Tuesday and Thursday of the school year.

Class Starts at 8:30 am and goes until 3:45 pm.

What is the main purpose of a Pre-K program?

The pre-k program can be viewed as a developmental kindergarten program. It has been designed to support learners who find themselves eligible for entering kindergarten that may not be ready for the regular kindergarten curriculum.

 

Pre-K allows learners additional time to develop in the areas of maturity, social skills, listening, self-confidence, following directions, and being separated from their parents.

Pre-K gives young kindergarten students an extra year of development, allowing them to become successful and eager kindergarten students the following year.

Must my child attend young fives before entering kindergarten?

No, we work with the parents to determine kindergarten readiness. With students who attend BCS 3-school or 4-school, our teachers will give each family a recommendation based on classroom experience. Children of eligible age for entering kindergarten can be given a kindergarten readiness test to help determine if it would be beneficial for your child to attend Pre-K. Some children are developmentally ready to enter kindergarten, while others would benefit from an additional year of Early Childhood schooling before entering kindergarten.

Is there an overlap of content areas in curriculum between 4-school, Pre-K, and kindergarten?

The BCS pre-k program has been established so that there is minimal overlap between 4-School, Pre-K, and kindergarten material. Different topics are covered to keep school exciting for the young learner. We have studied the preschool and kindergarten curriculum to ensure that it is specifically designed to fit between the programs on either side of it. Pre-K is a complement to the areas of study in preschool and kindergarten.
