Requirements for Admission
K3 students must be three years old on or before September 1st; K4 students must be four years old by September 1st; No pre-entrance testing is required at the preschool level.
K3 and K4 classes have no more than 16 students per class. Each class has a certified teacher and full-time aide.
We primarily use the A Beka curriculum. This provides students with a strong foundation in phonics while presenting foundational teachings about the Bible, Jesus Christ, and salvation. Preschool classes have hands-on learning centers to enhance readiness skills.
Throughout the year there are numerous parties and fun days. Fun days have a special theme such as teddy bear day or pajama day.
K3 and K4 students may wear play clothes. Each student is required to wear a red Cumberland logo uniform shirt for field trips and chapel days.
Full day students bring sack or re-heatable lunches from home. Parents are asked to send a snack each day for their child.
"Cumberland provided a loving, safe environment for my child. The emphasis on phonics and reading provided an excellent foundation for his entire education."
