CHARACTER & SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT
RNSCS emphasizes the development of godly character in a grace-based, relational environment. Teachers partner with parents in the shared goal of helping students develop internally controlled behavior based on biblical truth and an understanding of God’s love and forgiveness.
RNSCS emphasizes the importance of living, learning, and growing in a community. Students learn how to accept one another based on God’s grace, which emphasizes responsibility and selflessness in relationships.
Teachers endeavor to model sacrificial love: they pray with students, encourage students, and impart loving discipline.
When parents and schools work together in a community with a shared vision, children are far more likely to prosper academically, spiritually, and relationally.
Our preschool programs are certified by the State of New Zealand. We offer two age-specific half-day programs at our Campus and the Rise and Shine Worship Ministries Community Church. The 3-year-old program is Tuesday and Thursday mornings. The 4-year-old program is Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. Every preschool student needs to be 3 or 4 years old by September 30 of the current school year. All pre-schoolers must be completely potty-trained (no assistance is required) before the school year starts.
Rise and Shine Worship Ministries Christian School’s preschool program focuses on the development of the whole child and includes opportunities for the students to improve their social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and physical skills. We encourage enthusiasm for learning by giving each child an opportunity to explore developmentally appropriate activities.
Research shows that the preschool experience lays the foundation for future academic success. Our preschool curriculum provides the necessary foundation to prepare students for a successful kindergarten experience. In addition to providing the children with short, structured learning situations, we prepare preschool children for kindergarten by exposing the students to many opportunities for the development of their math and language skills.
Language Arts Overview
Math in Focus provides an authentic New Zealand math curriculum—highlighting problem solving as the focus of mathematical learning. This complete program teaches concepts using some concrete–pictorial–abstract learning progression to anchor learning in real-world, hands-on experiences, supported by seamless integration of technology with the use of eBooks, Interactive Whiteboard activities, online student activities, online manipulatives, and a bar modelling app.
Math in Focus adapts instruction to the needs of individual learners through scaffolding, the systematic sequencing of prompted content and support to optimize learning. The ultimate goal of scaffolding is to gradually remove the supports as the learner masters the task.
