Kindergarten at Covenant

Get to know your Kindergarten teachers!

As Kindergarten teachers, we are on a mission to create lifelong learners, and that means children should experience the JOY of learning at an early age.

“I love to see the students develop as readers and mature in their love for God throughout the year. It’s so much fun to see the excitement on their faces as they start to really understand. Kindergarten is such a fun time to get to know each other. We learn so much and have a lot of fun along the way!”

“Kindergarteners have so much excitement and joy – everything is new to them. I love teaching them how to read because it is so rewarding and can bring them so much joy over the rest of their lives. Our future Kindergarteners are loved and prayed for by all of the teachers!”

A Day in the Life of a Kindergarten Student

Brand-new Kindergarteners are beginning an adventure of learning that we hope will last a lifetime! We believe God created children to be active learners, and Kindergarten is where the fun begins! What does Kindergarten at Covenant look like? 

We start each day with Chapel, prayer, and a “morning meeting” to set the day’s course. 

In Kindergarten, we promote strong literacy skills and work on reading comprehension strategies throughout the year. Letter learning focuses on phonics instruction, handwriting and the attributes of God: “God is L — Love, God is O — Over All Things, God is G — Glorious.”

We focus on number skills, fun activities, math games and math journals to promote and develop “number sense.”

Our Bible classes include reading the Bible and discussion-based lessons focusing on the Old Testament. Throughout the year, we focus on kind and respectful relationships with our new friends and teachers.

As Kindergarten teachers, we are on a mission to create lifelong learners, and that means children should experience the JOY of learning at an early age. So much development takes place in Kindergarten – spiritually, academically and socially. 


At Covenant, we like to “begin with the end in mind.” That means Kindergarten students start learning Rhetoric skills with their first in-class presentation on the 100th Day of School.

Field Trips

Because learning goes beyond the classroom, our students enjoy field trips, too! One of our favorite Kindergarten field trips has been a visit to Mainstay Farm’s Pumpkin Patch in the fall.


Each Kindergarten student is paired with a 6th-Grade “Buddy” for reading, special lunches and lots of high fives on campus! Special friendships are formed in this sweet tradition.
