Thursday School

Thursday School is a preschool program for children ages 3 and 4 that runs each year from mid-September through late April. The children learn about the alphabet, shapes, colors, and numbers. Each week, the children also have a Bible story corresponding to the alphabet letter of the week.

School is held Thursday morning from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Each class consists of 8 children with two teachers. This student/teacher ratio allows each child to receive the attention that they need at this age. Volunteer members of the Flanders Rd. Church of Christ serve as staff for the Thursday School program.

Classes are now forming for the 2019-2020 school year.

  • Our school year starts Thursday, September 12, 2019, and runs for 27 weeks. Scroll down to see the complete calendar
  • We follow an educational curriculum that helps prepare the children for kindergarten
  • The program is affordable! The annual cost is $80 and is used to cover supplies.

Program Curriculum

We believe children learn best through active learning! We will incorporate the curriculum throughout our day in repetitive ways to reinforce the skills we are teaching.

Academic: Letter and number recognition, beginning sounds, shapes, colors, rhymes, fine motor skills (cutting, tracing, play dough), identifying sight words, and literacy building activities.

Bible: We have a group devotional each morning. This consists of a bible story, singing and prayer. We will also incorporate some academic skills like the letter of the week to accompany the bible story.

Our curriculum is designed to help develop important kindergarten readiness skills like learning to listen without interrupting, paying attention in a large group, and being able to look at pictures and re-tell a story.
