MGCS Preschool Program

Program Overview

Our program is designed to help children grow mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually: to empower them to have an abundant life, “full till it overflows.” Our spiritual emphasis is not limited to one specific part of the day or to a specific method. We want to help children “love whatsoever things are true and pure and lovely and are of good report” through the life and teachings of Jesus in action, word, and song. The curriculum is teacher developed and is taught through different thematic units. Within each unit lesson, children will develop their fine motor skills, gross motor skills, language skills, social skills, and cognitive skills. Music and art will also be incorporated into each unit. During the preschool morning, the children:

  1. Have inside and outside free play/center activities
  2. Have Circle Time
  3. Have Bible Instruction/Praise and Worship
  4. Have Snack
  5. Have Physical Education Instruction
  6. Have Art and Music Instruction

Daily schedules and monthly units of study will change depending upon the teacher.

Class Options

We offer classes for 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds.


Children should be 3 years of age on or before August 31 and they must be completely potty trained.

Our priorities for our three-year-olds are:

  • To provide a positive fun first school experience
  • To plant seeds of faith within each child
  • To develop good social skills in each child
  • To develop their fine motor, large motor, and cognitive skills

Our 3-year-old program has three options. All classes follow the same yearly plan.

Monday, Wednesday, Friday Class
8:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.

Tuesday, Thursday Class
8:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.

Monday-Friday Class
8:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m.


Our priorities for our 4-year-old classes are:

  • To provide a positive preschool experience
  • To plant seeds of faith within each child
  • To develop good social skills within each child
  • To prepare children for kindergarten with developmentally appropriate activities

Our 4-year-old preschool program is designed to challenge the students and prepare them for a kindergarten program. The students are challenged in all areas: physically, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and cognitively.

Our 4-year-old transitional kindergarten program is designed for the older, more mature 4-year-old and younger 5-year-old who is ready to move at a faster pace and work in a more structured environment. Children entering the 4-year-old transitional kindergarten program should be turning five between August 31 and March 31.

Both classes prepare children for a kindergarten program. The teachers work closely together in developing units and lesson plans. The yearly objectives are the same for both classes. It is our desire to meet the needs of each child. We do not want to frustrate them by placing them into a program that would not challenge them. Prayerfully consider which program would be most beneficial for your child before making a final decision.

We have incorporated Sing, Spell, Read, Write curriculum into our 4-year-old program. This curriculum stresses good language and pre-reading development in our preschool children.

Our 4-year-old program also offers two different classes. Both classes follow the same yearly unit plans.

4-year-old preschool – Monday, Wednesday, Friday

4-year-old transitional Kindergarten – Monday thru Friday
