Our Pre-K class is designed for 4-5 year old children to gain all of the skills they will need to enter into Kindergarten in a fun, interactive, God-centered, nurturing, organized, hands-on environment.
It is our goal to encourage individual growth in all developmental areas as we promote cognitive, physical, social, emotional & spiritual learning. We use a variety of age appropriate hands-on activities & teachable moments through play; and balance the program with developmentally appropriate academic skills geared to each child’s needs.
We strive to help each child understand that they are beautifully, wonderfully and uniquely made by God through Bible teaching, prayer, songs, chapel and everyday experiences with friends.
Terri Fegler – Half Day Pre-K Teacher
Terri Fegler has taught Pre-K and Preschool at Stafford Academy since 2008. She has a degree in Early Childhood Education and has been working with children for over 25 years. Terri loves teaching God’s Word to children through stories, drama, object lessons, and art activities.
Along with teaching Preschool, Community School Classes & directing Before & After School Care Programs, she has taught Sunday School, Awana, VBS, and at Christian Summer Camps.
Terri teaches children through a variety of hands-on experiences and a thematic approach as well as individualized learning according to each child’s needs. She loves to give children the opportunity to get messy and play with items not always welcomed into home environments such as Ooblick, Playdough, Paint, Glue, Pudding, Jello and Shaving Cream. She believes strongly that children learn best through play and that teaching children to have fun and to love learning are key ingredients to future success in school. One of her favorite sayings is “Childhood is a journey, not a race.” She loves to watch children’s excitement as they gain new skills, build friendships and begin to believe in, trust and depend on Jesus Christ.
