Educating Minds ~ Transforming Hearts for Christ
2101 Owego Rd. Vestal, Ny 13850
Little Rams preschool is a blended program of Christ-centered academics and social development presented in a creative and fun manner. We encourage hands-on exploration and discovery of God’s world. RCCA's Preschool program ensures a fluid transition into our full-day Kindergarten program by building a foundation of basic knowledge needed to successfully approach this next transition in education.
Students must be 3 years old to enroll in our preschool program. Students must be potty-trained.
Lil’ Ram's Facilities
Our secure preschool department includes a spacious room that is designed for your student's development and safety. All exterior doors are locked during school hours; visitors must enter through the main school entrance.
All preschool staff have completed a background check and there are CPR/First Aid certified faculty on site at all times.
Since 1960, Ross Corners Christian Academy has offered high quality Preschool-12th grade education, and we believe that children are a precious gift from God.
These programs exist for the following purposes:
To teach children God's love and His works. Bible stories, character qualities of Christ, songs and scripture are emphasized daily
To develop self-worth. "You are special because God made you!"
To increase verbal skills by encouraging children to use words when interacting with others
To introduce academic readiness skills. Students are exposed to many learning experiences and mastery of each skill comes when the child is developmentally ready
To develop a positive attitude toward school and learning
What Can I Expect in a Typical Day at Little Rams?
While every day is unique, each will include the following in some capacity
Quality Education: : The instructional times during class remain centered on the A Beka curriculum and we teach and encourage a mastery of reading one and two vowel words. Our small reading groups take the children through little readers which get sent home upon completion. The students are also introduced to basic math concepts, as well as writing numbers and counting to 100.
Centers: Each day your child will have an opportunity to practice their social skills-sharing, problem solving and critical thinking- during centers! This includes blocks, dramatic play, puzzles and more!
Circle Time: Each morning your child will participate in a circle time, which will include Bible time and prayer, calendar skills, songs, and more!
Craft time: Each day your child an opportunity to develop their fine motor skills-cutting, gluing, and coloring, as well as listening skills and their ability to follow directions!
Recess: A time to get all the wiggles out and develop their gross motor skills! Each day your preschooler will enjoy free play on our outdoor playground or in our onsite gymnasium.
Snack Time: Social skills as well as fine motor skills are developed during snack time! Little Ram's preschoolers will have a morning and afternoon snack time. Please pack these for your child.
