Wellington Christian To Continue Early Childhood Education

Wellington Christian School will continue to offer its early childhood education program for the 2014-15 school year.

While the elementary and secondary schools will close at the end of this school year, the early childhood education program will continue and include Florida’s Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program. In addition to the VPK program, it will serve students ages 2 through 4 with a variety of schedule options.

“We support our families by allowing them to create schedules to fit the needs of their children and family dynamics,” Early Childhood Director Patricia McCaulley said. “We will offer the same high-quality early childhood education program that we’ve offered throughout the school’s 34-year history.”

Wellington Christian’s early childhood education program will continue at its long-time location at 1000 Wellington Trace in Wellington. It will share the location with the new Eagle Arts Academy, an arts-themed charter elementary and middle school that will open for the 2014-15 school year. The early childhood education program was founded by Wellington Presbyterian Church, which will continue to support the program. It will be self-contained in its own facility on the property.

A Gold Seal Quality Care program, the early childhood education program focuses on developing the whole child in a nurturing, Christian environment. Children progress in an age-appropriate curriculum of pre-reading, pre-math, pre-writing and science through hands-on multisensory activities.

“Our program will include creative movement activities for gross motor development, as well as fine arts and Spanish. After-school enrichment activities will also be provided,” McCaulley said.

Families can opt for two-day, three-day or five-day part-time or full-time programs. The VPK program is a 5-day morning program. All classes have student-teacher ratios well below Palm Beach County licensing requirements.

“We strive for every family to be consistently assured that their child is in a safe and positive learning environment,” McCaulley said.

There will be an open house for prospective parents on Thursday, May 1 from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. Parents may also inquire to schedule a tour of the facility at another time.
