Kindergarten Program

Kindergarten is a special time. We will always remember the first time our child gets picked up by the big, yellow bus or is dropped off at school for their first full day. Genesee Country Christian School understands the milestone that kindergarten is while appreciating that each child and family situation is unique. Our kindergarten program is customized with these special differences in mind.

Parents know their child better than anyone and are best suited to determine if their student is ready for the rigors of a full day program or if half-day would be a better fit for their student and their family. That is why Genesee Country Christian School offers both half-day and full day kindergarten programs.

All kindergarten students are together for the morning, which is filled with innovative academics and a Bible-based curriculum. Afternoons are more relaxed and include lunch, recess, quiet time, and story time. Play is a part of the morning and the afternoon, because more than anything, little learners need to be able to move around and have fun with friends, while they develop the social skills necessary for a successful educational future.

The kindergarten reading program consists of instruction in phonemic awareness, beginning phonics, recognition of sight words and basic comprehension skills. Through exploration of manipulatives and direct instruction kindergartners develop their understanding of math concepts including patterns, counting, shapes and solids, addition and subtraction, money, telling time and fractions.

A kindergarten screening is required for admittance into our program and can be scheduled with the school office by calling (585) 243-9580 or emailing office@GeneseeCountryChristian.org.
