One of the most common questions we get at Memphis Moms Blog is from parents looking for a pre-K program for their little ones. When looking for a program, we know it's important to not only grow your child's mind, but also enrich their hearts.
With all the options in and around Memphis, how does a family choose the right fit for them? Well, it's important to do your research, ask questions, and find a school that aligns with your personal beliefs on education and faith.
Introducing Evangelical Christian School's New Pre-K Program
Starting in the 2017-2018 school year, Evangelical Christian School (ECS) will add pre-K to its curriculum. This is exciting for so many reasons, but especially because ECS is already very well-known as one of the Memphis area's best places for children to receive their education.
In order to really understand how ECS could be a great fit for your family, it's important to know what makes them unique. It is within these details that you'll find the perfect school for your family.
What sets Evangelical Christian School apart?
- Flexibility of options. Whether you prefer for your child to go to pre-K full time or part time, ECS can accommodate you. Every child and every family is different, and children thrive where their needs are met. So, whether that's at school five full days a week or even just three half-days per week, ECS is the answer.
- Discipleship-based education experience. At ECS, your child's education focuses on both academics and faith. ECS requires one parent to have a testimony of faith in Christ in order for the child to attend. As the only Christian school in the Memphis area that adheres to this philosophy, ECS allows students and families to benefit from a nurturing Christian community comprised of the home, church and school. For more information on the Discipleship Model, you can visit their website.
- Your child's success is a priority. While many other schools are teaching children how to pass tests, ECS is teaching children how to be successful in school and beyond. ECS knows that curricular quality is not determined by a set of standards or a textbook. Curriculum at ECS is determined by qualified, well-trained Christian teachers who have determined what knowledge, content and skills are necessary to fulfill the academic mission of ECS in all content areas.
- Consistency in education. Parents and children love consistency. ECS is already well-known for its early childhood programs. Transitioning out of pre-K is so much easier when you remain in the same school, and why wouldn't you? ECS offers education all the way through your child's senior year of high school!
How Do I Get More Information?
Evangelical Christian School has a great website full of information, including how to apply for admission, tuition rates, and how to visit a campus. We highly suggest, though, that you call and talk to someone in their Admissions office by either calling 901.754.7217 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. When you communicate with someone at ECS, you'll really get a better feel of how eager they are to educate your children and help them grow as students and people.
