About MCA Kinder Prep
Building Excitement for Learning
Goals for our school…
1. To provide a curriculum that is both challenging and developmentally sensitive.
2. To lay an educational foundation that is strong, diverse and functional.
3. To addresses the following areas of development:
– Spiritual, through Bible, prayer, and role modeling
–Intellectual/Cognitive (academics), through literacy/language, math and science

We hope that you will participate in your child’s education by volunteering, in the classroom, through fundraising events, on field trips and with B.O.T. (Bless Our Teachers). We desire to work with you in the education of your child and want to support you. Centers used in the classroom are chosen to support creative play and life skills. The children are encouraged to explore each center daily. Creative play and problem solving skills can be demonstrated in each of the following centers: Housekeeping, Cars & Trucks, Blocks of various sizes and styles, Manipulative Area, Sensory Table, Library and Music Centers. In addition, children receive twenty minute each week of Spanish, PE, Chapel and music that is incorporated into their learning time.
Please feel free to contact the preschool office if you have any questions.

MCA Kinder Prep Philosophy
Maranatha Kinder Prep offers an enriched program of highly creative activities designed to develop in the young child an excitement and desire for learning which will remain with him through life. By permitting each child to develop at his own speed, he will acquire a good self-image and the feeling of “I can do it!” The child will be exposed to many hands-on learning experiences. Being a member of a group will help your child to become a more observant, responsible, and well-adjusted member of society in stimulating surroundings.
Maranatha Kinder Prep will help to develop Christian character and conduct, obedience to parents, respect for authority and appreciation for America and the freedoms we enjoy. Bible stories and prayer are an integral part of the program.
“Play is child’s work”. Many of their most valuable learning experiences come through play. Therefore, much thought has gone into the selection and design of the outdoor play area equipment emphasizing muscle development, coordination, and balance. Our toys lend themselves to imagination and creative uses by the children.
Centers used in the classroom are chosen to support creative play and life skills. The children are encouraged to explore each center daily. Creative play and problem solving skills can be demonstrated in each of the following centers: Housekeeping, Cars & trucks, Blocks of various sizes and styles, Manipulative Area, Sensory Table, Library Corner, and Music Center.
Maranatha Kinder Prep admits students of any race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, athletic, or other school-administered programs. To do so would be in violation of Christian principles as set forth in God’s Word, the Holy Bible.
