Weekday Preschool

Welcome to the Weekday Preschool at Sugar Hill Church, where teaching children a love for God, His world, and other people is so important. Our core values are founded in the desire to have children learn through God’s Word, creative curriculum, daily life experiences, and the classroom environment.

Fall Start Up

The importance of preschool experiences cannot be overemphasized. These experiences are foundations upon which other education is built. The preschool years should be happy and relaxed – a time in which children feel successful. When a child enters the Weekday Preschool, he does not come merely for academic development. Rather, he comes to develop habits and share experiences that will provide a firm foundation upon which he will continue to build throughout his education and life.

At Sugar Hill Church, a child will be provided an environment to learn to interact socially with teachers and other children, to work and play in a group and to grasp the concept of sharing. Children will be given the opportunity for following simple and reasonable directions as well as creative, emotional and artistic expression. The children are taught how to use books, to love and appreciate them, and to realize that pictures and words convey meanings. Opportunities for self-expression through music and singing, show and tell, drawing and painting, conversation and other creative activities are provided to help the children as they discover who they are.

The Weekday Preschool is an outreach program of Sugar Hill Church engaging our community with the love and hope of Jesus Christ. The learning environment, which teaches children about themselves and the world around them, is designed to stimulate an awareness of our God and His love for us.

Weekday preschool is really an adventure for any child. It is the beginning of an exciting new phase of life – the school years.
Our core curriculum is Wee Learn which is published by Lifeway Christian Resources. Wee Learn is composed of thematic units that are appropriate for and of interest to preschoolers. This curriculum incorporates learning concepts and idea expression through play (the work of young children). Children will have the opportunity throughout each unit to explore, discover, imagine, imitate, and create in centers of language arts, mathematics, blocks, home-living (dramatic play), puzzles, manipulatives, art, science and nature, sand and water, and music. Bible concepts and character development partner with every theme of study, reinforcing that God and His Word are relevant and important to all areas of our lives and our world. Other materials and resources are used to enhance and supplement the Wee Learn curriculum in all classes.

All classes attend a Music and Movement enrichment class daily, as well as a weekly enrichment class focused on STEAM. Our Pre-K and TK classes have an additional Spanish enrichment class weekly. Each week, ages three and older attend Chapel, an early childhood appropriate worship experience helping preschoolers grow in their understanding and love for God, other people, and our world.
Registration for the 2024-25 school year opens to new families on Monday, 1/29/24. In early January, we will begin receiving registration forms for new students, which will be held in the order received until Open Registration begins.
