CLRC Kindergarten: Panagia, My Parents, and Me

Christian Studies

Do you have a 5-year-old who is ready to begin his journey into academics, but you are not sure where to start? Do you want a program that is peaceful and gentle, yet still provides a purposeful pathway to help him gain the skills he needs to be ready for formal education? Do you feel strongly that what your kindergarten student needs is a wholesome education that knits together the movements of the seasons, the dynamics of your own family life, and the Festal cycles and liturgical rhythms of the Orthodox Christian Faith?  If so, then the CLRC’s Integrated Kindergarten curriculum may be just what you are looking for.

We recognize that being a homeschooling mom often involves learning as much as your children do. Our hope is to provide some support and community to homeschool parents as well as to the kindergarten students.  Each week, parents and children together meet in the online classroom with the instructor. The instructor will lead the students in stories, songs, poems, and activities, and offer helpful hints to parents along the way, while also answering questions about how to implement the provided curriculum and giving examples of what that might look like. 

The program is designed to provide a gentle but solid foundation in math and letter sounds while giving options for activities to develop many other skills that can be easily implemented by the busy homeschool parent. The foundational lesson for each day is drawn from the spiritually rich Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendar, or from the natural world.

The program includes:

  • A weekly live class which parents and children attend together
  • Complete weekly plans as well as suggestions for a daily rhythm
  • Parent meetings and individual help (by appointment)

PLEASE NOTE: This course is not eligible for Charter School funding.
