From exploring God’s word, creation and wonders, to a hands-on Christ-centered curriculum, SCS provides a springboard for learning and progression in the areas of intellectual, spiritual, social and emotional growth all while rooted in a safe and loving environment. How we interact, the values we promote, and the nurturing surroundings we provide are vital in students developing essential skills that will help them navigate our world and prepare for the future. Students exiting early elementary are ready and confident for what lies ahead in the next grade level.

A Firm Foundation For Successful Learning

Our Southcrest Christian Early Elementary program is designed to educate the whole child. We seek to integrate Biblical truth and academic excellence. Our environment allows children to develop spiritually and academically on the journey to reach his/her God ordained potential. Southcrest Christian Early Elementary provides a loving and joyful environment. Our program is designed to foster the spiritual, social, cognitive and physical development of each student. Our school is staffed by nurturing, experienced teachers who have a heart for serving the Lord and loving His children. In Early Elementary, emphasis is placed on the development of phonemics awareness skills. Reading, writing and math readiness skills are taught through phonics-based curricula. Students participate in multi-sensory learning centers that focus on meeting the needs of different learning styles. They are taught to know and love the Lord through interactive Bible lessons, songs, scripture memorization and chapel. Social development is encouraged through cooperative play. Early Elementary students engage weekly in music and movement, Physical Education, and story time. They also have daily recess time. Special days include visits from Community Helpers, a Christmas program, dress-up days, a Spring Music program and end of the year field day.
