Student Information Packet for 2016-2017

Recognized by the North Georgia Conference as "A Program of Excellence for Young Children"


  • The Preschool uses a Christian based curriculum which incorporates monthly themes to teach age- appropriate skills with lots of fun hands on activities, manipulatives, and games.  We use the Zoo-phonics curriculum to teach phonics to the three to five year olds.
  • The daily schedule includes art, music, circle time, learning center activities, snack and outdoor or indoor large muscle play time.
  • Due West's Kindergarten is a Christian, half-day program.  The small class size allows children to be taught on their individual levels.  Whole group, small group and learning centers are used to teach math, writing, reading, science, social studies, English skills and Bible lessons.  Zoo Phonics is used for phonics, and common core standards are used to guide age appropriate unit studies.  Along with this, children go to music, chapel, science, Spanish and other special classes during the week.

  • Infants: Monday/Wednesday (4 months old by Sept. 1), 9:00 - 12:00
