Dear ECP Parents,
We have exciting news!!! Thank you to those of you in our preschool program who took the time to complete the email survey regarding class options for next year. After considering the survey results, the ECP Committee has decided to offer a Kindergarten class for the 2018-2019 school year!
As you have probably seen on various pieces of communication from us, part of ECP’s vision is that ECP would be “a place where children can be children in a world that has sometimes forgotten the importance of childhood”. We strive to do this in a number of ways. We keep our student/teacher ratios low so that each child can receive the attention and nurture that he/she needs during these critical early childhood years; we hire quality teachers who have many years of experience in early childhood and who genuinely love children; we teach children through the use of play and hands-on experiences, as research continues to prove that this is how children learn; and we celebrate the differences in children and teach to their individual learning styles as we believe that we are each uniquely created by God for a special purpose. We also recognize that our children will be entering a world where academic expectations are high. Thus, we are continually working to offer our children the highest quality of curriculum available.
Our kindergarten class will be no exception to any of the above. Our Kindergarten class will follow all curriculum guidelines established by the state of Oklahoma in order to prepare children for 1st grade; it will be taught by a certified teacher; and children will continue to be taught in an environment with low student/ teacher ratios where they can continue to “…be children in a world that sometimes forgets the importance of childhood”. Our aim is to keep this an affordable option with prices to remain in the ballpark of our current tuition and for the class to operate either four and a half or five full days per week.
There are details that are still being worked out, and more information will be coming in early January regarding price, class times, etc., but if you have any questions, please feel free to stop by. I’d love to visit further with you! I’d also love to know if you think you would be enrolling in this class as it would help us as we make plans.
As always, thank you for allowing us to partner with you in educating and caring for your children!
Mary Singleton, ECP Director
