We exist to assist parents in preparing their children to love learning and other so they can excel in life. “Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:26
I graduated from North Greenville University with an Early Childhood Education degree. I am certified in Early Childhood Education as well as Preschool Special Education. I have taught 4K for four years and preschool education and preschool education for four years in Greenville County Child Development Centers. My husband, Dalton Knight, is a high school principal. We have three children. I believe your children learn through play and I can't wait to teach and have fun with your child this year! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be an influence in your child's life. It is so rewarding to see our students grow and learn in every aspect - It's the best part of my job!
My name is Kim Craig and I am excited to be partnering with Kelsey in this ministry startup. I have been working with Children of all ages for almost 20 years. I have an Associate Degree in Occupational Therapy and have specialized in Pediatrics, I am the wife of a fireman and a mother of 3 kids. After having my third child 9 years ago, I wanted to be on the same schedule as my kids were for school so I started working with the Greenville County School District as a teacher's assistant and have loved working alongside a teacher to help kids grow and learn. Kelsey and I worked together for three years are Northwest Crescent CDC and are so excited to be back together. I can't wait to meet you kids and learn how to support them as they begin school in a fund and engaging classroom.
At Sans Souci Academy, we believe young children learn through play! The classroom will have centers (such as House, Block, and Art Center, etc.) which provides learning opportunities for social experiences, imaginative play and fosters creativity. The students will have daily opportunity for gross motor play on the playground or gym activities. Small Groups will be a time when Math and Literacy is the focus, but activities will be presented in an age appropriate and fun, exciting way.
An example of the units we will study:
- My School and Me
- Fall Harvest
- Community Helpers
- Changing and Growing
Units schedule and topics may vary in the case that students may show a deeper interest in a more specific topic during the school year. There will be a few field trips and/or activities planned to coordinate with the units. We are a Faith based Academy and our small and large groups will also integrate Christian values into the activities.
One of the most important things we will be focusing on this school year is the social/emotional goals such as sharing, taking turns, and cooperatively playing. Once children have mastered most social/emotional, age-appropriate goals, then they are able to really focus on academic success whether that’s now or later.
We can't wait to partner with you to help your child grow!
