THE "OTHER" HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH
A group of preschoolers is clustered around a SMART Table learning about habitat. They are dragging virtual animals on the table's touch-screen top to their correct environments, clicking to make the animals howl or cluck. The students love it. They are having such a ball on the preschool's SMART Tables and Osmo systems, they don't even realize how much they are learning or that they are mastering cutting-edge technology at the age of three and four.
That's what the three and four-year-old preschool programs are about at Mount Paran Christian School: presenting and learning through creativity and play, challenging young minds, and molding spirits while having fun. From the two-story play village inside the Sewell Cottage Preschool common area to the Connections Room filled with SMART Tables, hands-on STEAM curriculum, Osmo gaming systems and iPads, learning means active exploration — always developmentally on-target, always engaging, always Christ-centered.

TRANSITIONAL KIndeRgarten offered in lower school
As a part of our lower school, MPCS offers a Transitional Kindergarten program available in Kindergarten in unison with our Homeschool Hybrid program (depending on demand). After completion of PK4, this program provides an extra year of learning for young five-year-olds or children that may need additional time for developmental or academic growth. This small class creates the opportunity for developmentally appropriate instruction with a focus on phonics and social skills. These students then move into Kindergarten or first grade the following year with a solid foundation needed for their academic career.
