Full Day 8:00am-3:00pm

Students in the full day program will experience additional opportunities for learning enrichment activities and further social and physical development experiences. Full day tuition will apply.

Note: The afternoon is not a drop-in program. Parents choose which Kindergarten program to enroll in.


Kindergarten Entrance Age

Human development research indicates that there are universal, predictable sequences of growth in all domains of development -- physical, emotional, social and cognitive. We work hard to ensure that each child entering our school will be able to participate fully in the program and experience success throughout their academic career. Therefore we provide a developmentally appropriate curriculum for our K-2nd Grade students based on these sequences of growth, with the Kindergarten class of children at least five (5) years of age and a 1st Grade class of children at least six (6) years of age before the first day of school.

Many parents of children with fall birthdays believe their children will "get ahead" by starting school early rather than waiting another year. Our experience has confirmed that young children in a learning environment beyond what they are developmentally ready for are actually in over their heads, and end up being behind their classmates rather than getting ahead.

Therefore, Covenant Life School requires that a child be five (5) years of age before September 1st to enroll in Kindergarten.




Connecting God to Young Students

"I consider that being enrolled at Covenant Life School has helped my child realize how God is an ever-present, everyday part of our lives, involved in every aspect of our concerns and interests, even those of young children." CLS Parent
