Plans are in full swing to roll out a robust 3K program in the fall of 2020, however, due to the school closures that came about with the COVID-19 health crisis, it is possible that launch of the new program may have to be later than anticipated. Timing of when we are able to begin the new 3K program will be dependent not only upon when we are legally able to welcome our students back to school, but also upon enrollment demands and the ability to staff the program in accordance with CELA’s 3 pillars, mission and philosophy. We are committed to making sure that when our 3K program launches it will have the same high-standards and superior educational matrix that CELA has become known for.
CELA’s 3K Program will roll out in the 2020/2021 school year. While we are still in the process of refining the program, you can rest assured that the program will be robust, fun and effective while adhering to CELA’s 3 pillars which are academic excellence, Christian values and leadership development. CELA’s mission is to develop strong leaders equipped with academic excellence, Christian values, and leadership training and experience, preparing our students to learn, lead and excel in all walks of life. This mission starts with our youngest learners; therefore, these skills will begin to be developed in our 3K students by giving them opportunities to grow academically, learn and participate in on-going Christian values, and by presenting them with regular leadership opportunities. We will teach our 3K students so much more than ABCs and 123s; we will embed in them a foundation that will help to prepare them for full-time school and help them gain a love for learning and an even greater love for school.
CELA’s 3K Program will be a 3-day-per-week program which will include Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. We will offer parents a half-day option that will run from 8:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. or a full-day option that will follow our regular school hours of 8:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. (Other options may be considered based on demand.)
Offering our 3K Program on these days will allow our 3K students to participate in our weekly Wednesday-morning chapel service which is something that all our students look forward to with great anticipation. It will also allow 3K students to participate in the Chapel Family aspect of CELA. Chapel Families consist of students from each grade level working together on projects that re-enforce the Christian values that they are learning. Chapel Families meet each Friday morning during regularly scheduled CVLD time. Both of these activities are invaluable to the Christian values and leadership development aspects of CELA which help to define our school and the success we have.
Our 3K Program will help our young learners build social and listening skills as well as teach them how to take turns and be respectful of other people and property. They will learn to raise their hand in class, take turns and share, take care of school materials, and learn appropriate recess and school behavior. They will be exposed to working independently, in small groups and as a class. All of these skills will be taught in a manner that will be fun and exciting for a 3-year-old. We have found that when learning is fun the children are more engaged in the learning process and therefore learn and retain more.
Children must be 3 years old before the start of the 2020/2021 school year to participate in our 3K Program and must also be fully potty trained.
