At Heritage, classes for preschool aged children are referred to as Enrichment classes.
Enrichment I (PreK) is for children who become four years old prior to September 1.
Enrichment II (Kindergarten) is for children who become five years old prior to September 1.
The Enrichment program provides students with a firm foundation for lifelong, joyful learning. From the earliest age, a classical program focuses on who a student will become; this begins in our Enrichment program with habit training.
Aristotle asserted: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Nineteenth century British educator, Charlotte Mason, stated: “…habit will govern ninety-nine one-hundredths of the child’s thoughts and acts.”
Enrichment I and II include the following subject areas in their daily/weekly schedules:
• Nature Studies
• Picture Studies
The primary focus of Heritage’s Enrichment Program is the development and enhancement of good habits while also laying a firm foundation for academic success and developing intellectual curiosity. These habits include, but are not limited to, attention, obedience, truthfulness, respect, faithfulness, thoroughness, self-control, and gentleness. Teachers partner with parents to shepherd the hearts of children to enforce the importance of good habits and help students make wise choices.
