Philosophy & Purpose

Ann Arbor Christian School Eaglets Preschool offers a Christ-centered preschool experience for children ages 3 and 4 years old. The emphasis of our preschool is to learn together, explore God’s creation, and build a foundation for elementary education. This is accomplished through a play-based (social skills development) curriculum of units focusing on a variety of themes throughout the year. Math and literacy skills are incorporated into the everyday activities of the classroom. God’s relationship to each of us —whether adults or children— is an integral focus of the preschool program at Ann Arbor Christian School.

In a typical morning at our preschool, the children are engaged in these activities:

  • Learning valuable habits to begin the day
  • Opening circle time
  • Choice time to play with costumes, toys, games, and activities in the classroom
  • Bible, worship, and story time
  • Guided centers and project times
  • Sharing time
  • Snack & quiet reading
  • Recess
  • Practicing important “packing up” routines

The core days for our Preschool 4 program are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, with the option to also enroll on Tuesdays and/or Thursdays. The core days for our Preschool 3 program are Tuesdays and Thursdays, with the option to also enroll on Mondays, Wednesdays, and/or Fridays.
