Early Education

Learning to love the Scriptures and memorize verses is a big part of what goes on in our school every day. The kindergarteners in the video above memorized all of Psalm 100 (above) and also all of Psalm 23, in addition to MANY more verses throughout the year. 

Between birth and age 5, there are approximately 2,000 days of growth and development for the young child.  Each of these days is significant in the areas of cognitive, social-emotional, and spiritual development.  Grand View Christian School is pleased to offer a wide variety of age appropriate Christ-centered programs designed to prepare active 3-5 year olds for academic success and spiritual growth.
