The Early Childhood program offers a unique opportunity for our youngest learners. Our program creates a robust, year-round experience designed to prepare students cognitively, socially, and physically for transition into kindergarten. Our preschool reflects the belief that because each child grows at his or her own rate and pattern, each class must incorporate activities for individual levels of readiness. Our warm and caring atmosphere of playful exploration and discovery ignites inquiry and incorporates multi-sensory experiences.
Our teachers recognize that the love of learning encompasses many learning styles, thus leading to a program that offers a rich resource of activities where risks are encouraged and every child is respected. This philosophy extends through kindergarten with the emerging literacy and math programs that are guided by a qualified teacher and assistant, and our Early Childhood division incorporates weekly enrichment “specials,” which are classes taught by specialist teachers in art, music, physical education, library media, and technology.
The Best Place To Start
Fayette Academy offers full-time enrollment (Monday-Friday) and part-time enrollment (Monday, Wednesday, Friday or Tuesday, Thursday) for 3-year-old classes only. PK4 attend full time.
*Students must be potty trained at the time of enrollment. PK3 children must be 3 years of age on or before June 30 to be eligible. PK4 must be 4 years of age on or before June 30 to be eligible.
Preschoolers enjoy meal time together in their classrooms. Families can provide lunch from home or may order lunch and snacks from our Fayette Academy Cafe to be delivered to their classroom at meal time.
Growing minds require proper rest. Each day our preschoolers engage in supervised nap time in their classrooms. Families can provide comforts from home such as personal-fitted- nap- mat sheet, blanket, pillow and that special stuffed animal to ensure a comfortable rest time.
All preschoolers participate in enrichment programs developed just for them. They experience a rotation each week in music, art, library media, physical education, science labs and Spanish.
Before & After School Care
Preschoolers are eligible for our Before and After School programs supervised by faculty members. New enrichment programs are provided every day, including robotics, maker kits, coloring, time in the garden, and of course, extra playground time.
