Who We Are

Programs by Age


Toddler

18 month - 3 years old

Our Toddler program is designed for students who are at least 18 months or older. In our program, the student's daily activities are planned according to the Arkansas State Guidelines for Pre-Kindergarten Educational Standards. We use the Adventures in Leanring curriculum and other teacher-created material.


Pre-Kindergarten

3 year old children

The pre-kindergarten and junior kindergarten programs concentrate on the developmental skills of early childhood and allow each child the opportunity to acquire important readiness skills at his/her own rate. The curriculum focuses on the development of perceptual skills, auditory and verbal communication skills, as well as pre-reading and pre-math skills.

Pre-K Early Literacy Learning in Arkansas (Pre-K ELLA) is the foundation of our Pre-K and Jr.-K curriculum. The Pre-K ELLA program implements developmentally appropriate experiences that promote emergent literacy skills for children prior to their entry into kindergarten. Pre-K ELLA is based on the Arkansas Early Childhood Education Framework.

The curriculum is supplemented by teacher-made activities and projects that enhance the planned curriculum and offer enrichment and/or remediation as needed. A calendar and a basic outline of skills to be covered will be sent home monthly.

Kindergarten

5 year old

St. Luke’s has developed a child-centered learning program that strives to meet the basic needs of each child. A specific scope and sequence of learning leads the student from one level to the next. A literature-based reading and language program allows the children to learn basic skills while they discover a joy of reading, the power of writing, and the roles that listening and speaking play in their lives. This language program links together the disciplines of spelling, phonics, grammar, creative writing, poetry, and reading to form an integrated experience of effective learning. Basic number concepts are developed through a sequentially planned math program that concentrates on a “hands-on” approach as the students manipulate objects to understand the number concepts. A combination of learning experiences is used to help students achieve to the best of their abilities.

Science and social studies are approached informally through units of study, sharing books, class discussions and current events. A weekly outline of what will be covered during that period will be sent home with the kindergarten children. Students of the St. Luke’s Episcopal School kindergarten rank in the 70th -93rd percentile on the Stanford 10 National Achievement tests.
