John Wesley Christian School began as a Mother’s Day Out and Preschool program, and we are expanding. We currently admit babies from 6 months of age through children in 1st grade, and we have big plans to add a new elementary grade level each year for the next 5 years up to 5th grade. We want your family to come grow with us!


Infants & Toddlers

Children must be between 6 months and 23 months of age by September 1.
Classes available:  M/W, T/Th, M/W/F, T/Th/F, or M-F

The curriculum for the infants and toddlers promotes activities that stimulate growth and development that can be incorporated into the routines of the day. These classes provide a warm, loving, and rich environment that encourages social, cognitive, and physical growth to fully enhance and nurture each child’s school experience.  Behavioral development is closely observed so that each child is loved, encouraged and nurtured in a positive atmosphere.

2-Year Olds

Children must be between 24 months and 35 months by September 1.
Classes available:  M/W/F, T/W/TH, T/Th, or M-F

The curriculum for the two-year-old classes provides interactive activities that enable children to develop a love of learning while they are playing and having fun. The classes provide a warm and friendly environment with hands-on, center-based activities to encourage early learning. Weekly theme units provide for activities in both large group and individual areas that move children toward their potential as they explore the manipulatives in the classroom.

3-Year Old Preschool

Children must be 3 years old by September 1, and MUST be potty-trained.
Classes Available:  M/W/F, T/W/TH, T/TH, or M-F

The three-year-old curriculum is based on learning through play. Our goal is to introduce concepts and learn by experience. The curriculum offers hands-on learning experiences that promote the cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and creative development of each student. Centers in the classroom include the following: math, writing, reading, art, dramatic play, housekeeping, listening, block building and science.

4-Year Old Preschool

Children must be 4 years old by September 1.
Classes Available:  M/W/F, T/W/TH, M-TH or M-F

The four-year-old program continues to build upon prior knowledge of the three-year-old preschool program. Active learning is encouraged through many hands-on experiences. The four-year-old curriculum is literature-based and thematic in nature. The curriculum encourages curiosity, develops a love of learning, fosters positive self-identity and sense of emotional well-being, develops social skills, and encourages children to think, reason, question, and experiment.


Children must be 5 years old by September 1.
Classes M-F

The curriculum in the Bridge Class is literature-based. Phonemic awareness is taught and practiced in the meaningful context of Big Books, picture books, poetry, stories dictated by students, and high-interest books with few words. Centers are primarily open-ended and encourage creativity, problem-solving, and social skills. These centers on a typical day include home living, art, manipulatives, building materials, reading, listening, writing, math, and a sensory table. Our goal is to provide opportunities for children to experience every concept in a multi-sensory way. Every effort is made to accommodate the learning styles of each child. The interests expressed by the children and their parents often inspire topics of study.


Classes M-F

The hands-on Kindergarten curriculum addresses the unique differences in ability and development of each student. Individualized, phonetics-based reading programs guide students in comprehension of reading material and in development of critical thinking skills, including application to valuable principles in their lives. This solid foundation of mathematical concepts and problem-solving skills, enhanced with a biblical world-view, intentionally and naturally results in lifelong application. Students are equipped to explore science from a biblical worldview while developing practical use of the scientific method and application of critical thinking skills. Experienced teachers craft instruction that is challenging, yet appropriate for every student, while encouraging them to develop critical and creative thinking skills.

First Grade

Classes M-F

The First Grade Class follows the First Grade Abeka Curriculum, which is a time-tested Christian curriculum which focuses upon Bible lessons, character development, spelling, phonics/language, reading, and writing with phonics, arithmetic, science, social studies, poetry, music, and art. Students are taught in both whole group settings and through small group center rotations. Centers are thematic and used to supplement skills being taught each week. Students are assessed regularly to differentiate instruction in addition to standardized testing (Iowa Basic Skills Test) in the spring. Homework and readers are sent home on most days to enhance learning and promote good homework habits. First graders are introduced to technology through classroom computers and the SMART board. Special care is taken to make sure that our curriculum aligns with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for First Grade.  In most areas, the Abeka Curriculum surpasses what is required by the state of Texas. Our small class sizes allow for one-on-one instruction daily.
First grade students attend chapel each week and a school-wide chapel each month. Bible lessons from chapel are extended in the classroom. Additionally, Bible and character development lessons are taught from the Abeka Curriculum. Students attend physical education and music classes each week. Special art classes are scheduled throughout the year in addition to art completed in the classroom on a weekly basis. Students have outdoor recess time daily unless there is inclement weather causing indoor recess to be scheduled in the gym. Our first grade students attend one field trip per year in order to extend learning and foster a sense of giving and serving.
