Is your family looking for a long-term partner in your child’s spiritual and academic journey? Westlake Christian Academy partners with Christian families and their local churches to provide a Christ-centered education.
Our kindergarten program offers a safe, loving environment where students engage in hands-on activities focused on preparing them to read, write, solve problems and think critically. The teacher consistently integrates faith and learning as students study a wide variety of high-interest topics. Students create art, experience music, and develop large motor skills throughout the school year. At the same time, they learn about sharing God’s love and treating others with kindness. We strive to meet the different academic, spiritual, social and physical needs of each individual kindergarten student.
Full-Day and Half-Day Options
We offer both a full-day and half-day option. Both options include all the core academics and instruction. Students who stay for the afternoon are given developmentally appropriate options for enrichment and engaging play-based learning. All of our students play outside every day, weather permitting. Full-day students are given extra time to play outdoors and more opportunities to develop collaborative 21st century skills.
Kindergarten students must turn 5 on or before September 1st. We provide kindergarten screening for all students entering our kindergarten program. This allows us to plan for the best school year possible.
