The elementary program at Naples Christian Academy starts in kindergarten. It is here that we begin to lay the foundation for all that lies ahead. We believe that young children learn through active, purposeful interactions with a wide variety of learning materials and activities which develop the growth of the whole child. By combining hands-on learning with direct instruction we are able to tap the God-given potential in all of our young students.
Kindergarten students are building an essential foundation in the areas of spiritual/social/emotional development, language and communication, motor control, citizenship in a community, creative expression, and of course academic skills and knowledge. The emphasis at NCA is given to core content areas including Bible, a phonetics-based reading program, mathematics, science, social studies, and handwriting.
