Kindergarten

Wasatch Christian School offers a 5 day a week full day (8:30-3:30 pm) kindergarten. In addition, child-care is available from 6am to 6pm.

 

Our experienced, caring, teachers not only prepare your child academically for 1st grade, but also teach from a Christian worldview that prepares him or her for the future.

In addition to other curriculum, we use a phonics based program called The Spalding Method to develop skilled readers, critical listeners, and accomplished writers and spellers through teaching 70 different phonograms for the children to master.  Through this program your child will learn all the sounds for every combination of letters, which will allow them to decode words easily and efficiently along with learning how to spell and write accordingly.
