Kindergarten & Elementary Program
Leading Students to Greatness
Our Kindergarten is a full day program from 8:30am-2:45pm. Kindergarten students begin to read, write, and attain math skills. Our reading program focuses on phonics, phonemic awareness, high frequency words, and comprehension. When combined, these elements create readers in our students. The daily schedule includes reading, writing, language arts, math, bible study, science, and history. Students learn by using the Multiple Intelligence Approach: a multi-sensory teaching technique that considers each student’s learning styles. Kindergartners also attend weekly music, art, physical education, library, and computer classes, which enhances their social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development.
Our Transitional Kindergarten Program allows students to develop and enhance their skills at a slower pace. If a student masters all skills in the TK program, as well as our K Program, they can be advanced into our First Grade with an assessment. If they are not ready, they will then be placed in our Kindergarten Program the following year. This program really provides the students with an opportunity to grow and reach mastery in important skills that they will need in order to be successful in their academic careers.
TK, K, and 1st grade Classrooms:
The TK, K, and 1st grade classrooms are large rooms with a bathroom in them. The classrooms are located towards the front of our school next to the school office. The students have their own play structure and grass area for recess and lunch that is separated from our older students.
1st- 5th Grade Program
The elementary program at CVCS is unique and designed to meet the needs of each of our students. We know that we are not just a school, but a family. CVCS offers low class sizes with highly qualified teachers. Our Christ-centered curriculum provides the best opportunity for your child to learn and advance in all areas of academics. The core curriculum of our Elementary Program is thorough in scope and sequence following the California State Standards and beyond. The core curriculum (Reading, Language Arts, Writing, Math, History, Science, and Bible) is taught daily emphasizing mastery in all subjects. We also offer a specialized curriculum weekly in music, art, physical education, library, and computers. This encourages our student’s creative and athletic talents to be enhanced to their fullest potential. State testing is conducted each year for all grades. Chino Valley Christian Schools’ students typically test out at 2.5 + years above their grade level.
Our students compete against other Christian schools in Spelling Bees, Science Fairs, Math Olympics, Speech Meets, and many more. CVCS participates in Outreach Ministries that allow students and parents to help people in need. There are educational field trips for all grades including community locations, museums, plays, zoos, and overnight trips for the upper grades. (Field trips are subject to change year to year)
