The infant room at Christ the King EEC provides a loving, fun, safe environment for your child to grow and learn. In addition to routine daily care (diaper changes, feedings, etc) each individual child is encouraged to reach his/her developmental milestones such as crawling and walking. Singing and artwork are a part of our routine. Above all, we develop close relationships with them. A daily sheet is provided so parents are aware of their child’s day, as our partnership with the parents is what makes our program the wonderful experience that it is.
Welcome to the Wonderful Ones! The Toddler 1 classroom consists of little ones ages one to two years old. Our focus in this room is to build vocabulary, strengthen walking skills and teach them how to eat at a table. The children also work on colors, numbers, names, manners, sharing and do various art activities. Our goals are to keep the children safe and to focus on their own individual milestones. Teachers love and care for your children as if they were their own.
Welcome to Toddler 2 East and Toddler 2 West classrooms! There are currently ten children enrolled in Toddler 2 East and 12 children enrolled in Toddler 2 West. In our classrooms, we focus on social, emotional, intellectual and physical skills with each individual child. Our lesson plans are based on Creative Curriculum and Boz the Green Bear Next Door.
Each morning our circle time consists of “The Good Morning Song” in English and Spanish, sing and point to the days of the week, count from 1-10 in English and Spanish and sing the alphabet and color song.
Art is offered each morning and in the afternoon. Children are encouraged to use their imagination and believe in the process, not the product.
An hour is spent outside each day exploring God’s beautiful world.
Toddler 2 encourages self-help skills, good manners, positive behavior and potty training. Once the children have success with potty training, we like to show them how proud we are of them by having a Big Kid Party. Those children get a certificate and a Big Kid crown to decorate.
We look forward to meeting you and your child.
Welcome to the Preschool 3 room. Lesson plans are done on a weekly basis. Each lesson plan consists of a theme, social interaction/communication, story time, small group activities (intellectual growth), creative self-expression (art), and school family time.
Some theme examples are Letter of the week, special holidays, seasons and specific interests the children may have. Basic Spanish vocabulary is incorporated into our daily routine.
“Boz” is the religion lesson that is followed in our room. It teaches the children about God and how he made each and every one of them special. We also pray before meals. There are several prayers for the children to choose from.
Each child is taught to be respectful of him/herself and of others, their property and the property of others. Self-help skills and independence are encouraged. Conscious Discipline is used in the classroom to guide each child to a better understanding of the choices they make.
Please note that children must be out of diapers/pull-ups and toilet trained before they can be enrolled in the three-year-old classroom.
In the Preschool 4 room, we provide a learning environment with an emphasis on cognitive skills, social skills, and problem-solving skills.
Creative Curriculum is our guide in planning for our classroom. Our class has a consistent, predictable schedule that we follow each day.
The Second Step program is used to help children understand and recognize feelings in others.
Our friends are well versed in Conscious Discipline by the time they move to the Pre-K classroom. The children also love learning about God with Boz the Bear.
We have a lot of fun while we are learning!
Welcome to the Prekindergarten classes! Kindergarten readiness is the focus in this classroom. Our program bases our studies and lessons on the Archdiocese Preschool Standards, as well as, the Kansas State Preschool Standards. Curriculums we use are Seed's Religious Readers, Scholastic's Big Day, Handwriting without Tears, Lexicor5, Catechesis of the Good Shepard, and supplemental enrichment activities. Our prekindergarten students attend mass with 7th-grade buddies on Thursdays 2nd through the 4th quarter of the school year. We also attend Music, P.E., Library, & Spanish in CTK Elementary. During the summer we offer opportunities for exciting field trips and presenters.
The purpose of our school-age programs is to provide a secure and safe environment with a stimulating atmosphere in which children can grow socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically and spiritually through age-appropriate practices. Christ the King strives to create a climate that will encourage exploration, experimentation, and creativity.
Before and After Care
Christ the King Before and After School Care Program is a 10-month program which provides opportunities for families to have a safe and friendly place for their children to go before and after school. Children have the option of choosing several different activities. They may work in large groups, small groups or alone to enjoy recreational activities, arts and crafts, educational games and various other activities under the close supervision of the school-age program staff. Time is given each day for children to complete their homework with help from staff members.
Before School Care is offered from 7:00 am to 7:40 am. After School Care is offered from 3:10 to 6:00 pm. Snack is served in the afternoon. Care is only available for children age five through eleven attending Christ the King Elementary school. Transportation from other area schools is not provided.
School Days Out
Care is provided to children on many days when Christ the King Elementary School is closed. Children from any school district are welcome to attend school days out. Enrollment paperwork must be completed prior to a child’s attendance at a school day out. On school days out, we are open from 7 am to 6 pm and serve breakfast, lunch, and snack.
Our program runs for 11 weeks. During the summer we provide opportunities for youth to enjoy recreational activities, learn new skills and make new friends. Campers take part in arts and crafts, sports, special projects, games and educational field trips under the close supervision of the summer camp program staff. Children from any school district can attend our summer camp program.
