TKA Opens New Preschool In The Area

The King’s Academy Preschool has opened a new Wellington/Loxahatchee campus for students ages two and three. TKAP Loxahatchee is located at Trinity West Church on Southern Blvd., one mile west of Binks Forest Drive.

In 2008, TKA created an exciting community outreach, founding the King’s Academy Preschool to serve young students and their families. TKA’s strategy was three-fold: to educate future Christian leaders at an early age, to meet local communities’ needs for quality preschool care, and to introduce TKA to families who might never visit the main campus.

Led by Vickie Farmer, a licensed early education specialist, and a dedicated faculty, the program has more than 120 preschool students at its Royal Palm Beach, Greenacres and Palm Beach Gardens locations.

Much of the program’s rapid success can be attributed to its caring staff and a well-planned, research-based curriculum. The preschool’s instructional program is based on the belief that children learn through play. It is through play, art, music and a hands-on approach that language arts, math and science are introduced.

TKAP’s curriculum offers monthly themes; discovery learning centers; Bible stories, pledges, songs and devotions; art, science, home, building, pretend play, writing and music centers; simple math and phonics skills; large and fine motor skills and manipulative development; interactive play and movement; behavior and manners teaching; Godly character traits and values; simple scripture memory; letters, shapes, colors, numbers and opposites; weekly chapel with music and movement; weekly lesson plans; and supervised outdoor playground time in the morning and afternoon.

“We seek to create a Christ-centered atmosphere of love, respect, trust and safety where children will strive to achieve their maximum potential under God,” Farmer said. “Our faculty endeavors to minister to the ‘total’ child. This instruction encompasses the spiritual, mental, intellectual, physical, social and emotional areas of child development. These areas are inseparable.”
