At Heritage, classes for pre-school 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.
Children are admitted to Heritage’s Enrichment Program based on admission testing, the Admissions Committee’s observations, parent interviews, and an agreement between the parents’ goals and those of the school.
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 Study
• Picture Study
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.
