Lancaster County Christian School (LCCS), 2390 New Holland Pike, Lancaster, will host an early childhood and kindergarten open house on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 9 a.m. Families with students entering preschool, prekindergarten, or kindergarten are encouraged to attend. LCCS provides an academic program to students in a nurturing Christian environment.
LCCS offers two kindergarten program options. The traditional elementary kindergarten students come to campus five days a week. The objective of the full-day kindergarten program is to build a solid foundation upon which students grow academically, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. The program is designed to be academically challenging, as well as developmentally appropriate. Kindergarten classrooms at LCCS are organized and structured to support all areas of development, and a variety of materials are used to stimulate students' curiosity, initiative, and inquiry.
LCCS offers an alternative solution for parents desiring both the gift of time with their elementary children as well as the services of a Christian school. This additional and cost-effective program is called The University Model. The University Model was developed to preserve and strengthen the family relationship and achieve a high degree of academic excellence. The University Model kindergarten model meets two days in the central classroom (on campus) and three days in the satellite classroom (at home). University Model students are on campus on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The Early Childhood Education program at LCCS aims to instill a love for both God and learning in students. LCCS offers both preschool for 3-year-olds and prekindergarten for 4- and 5-year-olds.
Children must be age 3 by Saturday, June 1, to enroll in preschool. Preschool takes place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:10 to 11:30 a.m. Preschool students enrolled in the enrichment program stay until 2:45 p.m. and enjoy rest time, a snack, and additional learning activities.
Children must be age 4 by Sunday, Sept. 1, to enroll in prekindergarten. Prekindergarten students have a two-day option on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:10 to 2:45 p.m.; a three-day option on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.; and five full days on Mondays through Fridays from 8:10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.
