Primary Grades

  1. Flexible Classroom Placement
    Placement is based upon readiness, not age.
    Do you have a four year old who is ready for school? Is your five year old reading and writing fluently? Does your eight year old still need time to develop the fine motor skills and attention span required for more advanced work? At Sheridan Christian Academy we will work with you to find the best classroom placement for your child. It's not about his/her birthday; it's about what's right for your child.
  2. Time for Play
    Play helps children learn
    Free play is crucial to a young child's learning. The modern push to eliminate recess and free time to make more room for "schoolwork" is harming our children. Some unstructured time is important for children at every level, but it will come as no surprise that the younger the child, the more time is needed. Therefore, in addition to scheduled recess times, the youngest children will have the opportunity for free play at the discretion of the teacher. For more information about the importance of playtime, click the link above.
  3. The Time Your Child Needs
    Children learn on their own schedules
    At every level, we use "mixed" or "mulit-age" classrooms. The decision about when to advance a child will be made by parents and teachers and is not dependent upon a day on a calendar. If your child has a "brain growth" spurt and is ready to move to the next level, you won't have to wait for a new school year to make the change. If your child needs a little extra time, they won't be "held back", they will simply continue in the same classroom until teachers and parents agree that it is time for them to move on.

  4. Individualized Learning
    Children have unique needs.
    If you have more than one child, you know how very different even closely related children can be, so while we have a structured curriculum at every level, teachers have a good deal of flexibility on how that curriculum is taught. Children who need more "hands on" learning activities will have the opportunity to move beyond pencil and paper work. Children who are very imaginative, will have the chance to participate in creative activities that play to their unique strengths and ways of learning. To find out more about the curriculum at each level, click the link above.
  5. Gender Matters
    Boys and girls learn differently.
    Despite modern rhetoric to the contrary, Christians know that God created men and women differently. Now, science confirms that male and female brains are far from identical. From infancy, boys and girls display differences in brain activity that indicate gender specific learning styles and preferences. At Sheridan Christian Academy, we work to find ways to capitalize on these gender profiles to help both boys and girls maximize their learning, while continuing to focus on individual needs that may supersede gender differences.
