Mrs. Criss' Class
This private school program is typically provided for the child who turns 5 right after the school year begins (September 1st). The First Protestant School of New Braunfels recommends that students in this program have completed a pre-k program here at FPS or another day school. We desire to provide our students with an authentic kindergarten private school experience. Your child will spend their morning (8:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) involved in a structured curriculum taught by a certified kindergarten teacher.
Regular student attendance in this class is crucial and will provide your child with the routine schedule he/she will need when moving to "Big Kid School." This 5-year-old program will focus on mastering language development, literacy, reading, mathematics, science, social studies, creative arts, social and emotional development, and physical health and safety. This is a wonderful class to transition your child into a public or private school kindergarten. As part of the extended kindergarten program (12:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m.), the students will also have the opportunity to learn through well-planned learning centers that allow for child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching designed to ensure academic success.
