Preschool

Full and Half Day Programs

Pisgah Preschool offers an ideal small class setting where children can explore, develop, and interact in a fun, structured setting. Because young children learn by doing, Pisgah provides hands-on activities and close interaction with teachers. The curriculum is carefully planned to promote cognitive development, creative thinking and problem-solving skills. In addition, our Christian environment provides the setting for the curriculum, offering opportunities for each child to grow in the awareness of the love of God. Pisgah Preschool uses a thematic, developmentally-appropriate approach to teaching concepts. Learning centers are set up in self-contained sections of the classrooms in which children use instructional material to engage in independent and self-directed learning activities. The teacher incorporates specific areas of study and the theme is integrated to accommodate pre-reading, pre-writing, and pre-scientific skills. Language skills, history and geography are approached using various media and teaching methods. Time is allocated for structured learning, as well as free play activities where children might be engaged in learning through activities in the fantasy corner or block center.

Creative and imaginative Pisgah Arts students present grade level performances each year in Lower School. Middle and Upper School theatrical, musical, and visual arts performances, productions, and exhibits are also held annually.

An outdoor concert, musical productions and the National Art Honor Society sponsored Talent Show and Art Exhibition round out a year of spectacular Arts presentations.
