Pre-K & Kindergarten are some of the most formative years of a child’s life. At The Brook Hill School, we are working with our preschool and kindergarten students to lay the foundation for learning that will help them be successful for the rest of their life. We do this through a variety of innovative practices and phonics programs that keep students active and engaged at every level of learning. Starting in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, students study art, music, technology, public speaking, and even conduct science labs.
As a Christian school, we strive to create a culture of genuine love and care. We hope that this trains up our students in a nurturing environment, and that our preschool and kindergarten program develops students that are prepared, challenged, affirmed, and encouraged in body, mind, and spirit. We see successful and happy students moving onward to excellence and success as we partner with families in the growth and development of their children. We hope that we can partner with your family in this endeavor as well.
Why Should Children Attend Pre-K & Kindergarten?
After years of research, one thing is clear: students who attend preschool and kindergarten are better prepared than those who don’t. At Brook Hill, our experienced faculty and staff are dedicated to helping students grow educationally, personally, and spiritually as we lay the foundation for them to succeed not only in college, but for the rest of their life!
