Our preschool opened in 1954 and is a mission of Key Biscayne Community Church serving the Key Biscayne community by offering educationally developmental classes for 1-1/2 year-olds through pre-Kindergarteners daily from 8:30 am – 2:20 pm. The school year runs from the day after Labor Day in September through May. While English is spoken at school and classes are taught in English, a Spanish-speaking teacher or aide is in each classroom.
We offer educational development in small & large motor skills, computer use, music, art and drama. Chapel Services are held in the Church Sanctuary each Monday morning for all students. Each year the PreSchool’s PTA offers a “Halloween Fest” which is open to the community. During the summer, we offer a “Summer Camp” for the children.
KBCC Day School offers children a fun and exciting environment to build a healthy, positive self-concept to develop communication abilities and learning modes. We aim to prepare children for a formal educational experience through instruction that is individualized to meet each child’s needs enabling the child to accelerate at his or her own rate of learning. We provide this enrichment within the framework of a traditional setting with a small pupil-teacher ratio.
KBCC Day School is designed to be a pleasant and secure environment. The school is equipped with the finest educational materials specifically geared toward each age level. Our spacious classrooms can be viewed through monitors available to parents at all times. In addition, each room is equipped with computers and reading library centers as well as dramatic play areas all of which give the young imagination a lot to think about. Our fenced playgrounds are equipped with pre-school climbing fixtures designed for safety and action. Students are instructed in the development of gross motor skills.
KBCC Day School offers a very small age interval in each of the classes which insures optimal growth and allows for developmental differentiation.
We believe in a true “hands-on” learning system. We have a written curriculum and a series of objectives in developmental order.
