The preschool teachers at GCA have written a thematic curriculum intended to foster students' development spiritually, academically, emotionally, and socially while learning in a Christ-Centered environment. Our primary focus in preschool is to share the love of Jesus to our students through our daily activities. We work hard to prepare our students for the rigorous kindergarten program offered at GCA. Detailed information about each unit will be sent to parents weekly through their class newsletter. By the end of P4, our students should be able to:
