DAN RIVER WEEKDAY EARLY EDUCATION SCHOOL is a preschool which operates September through May. Using the WEE Learn Curriculum produced by the Southern Baptist Sunday School Board as well as other supplemental materials, the school strives to build a strong foundation to enable success in future education.
Children participate in a variety of learning experiences throughout the time they are at school. Independent free play, language arts, basic math concepts, science, social studies, art, music and listening skills are addressed through age appropriate activities.
Currently classes are offered for children ages 2 to 5. Registration for the coming year begins in March and continues until classes are full.
The purpose of the weekday program is to provide our community with the highest quality preschool experience possible. The school encourages the child's growth spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, and socially. Through happy experiences the child builds a positive attitude toward school and church.
