I recently ordered a pair of hiking pants online. I did all the research, searched through the specifications, and read the reviews before I purchased. These were going to meet my needs perfectly—the exact right fit. But, when they arrived, the fit was all wrong. Too long, too big, too disappointing.
Sometimes, searching for the right preschool curriculum can feel like ordering the wrong pair of pants. The fit is close, but it isn’t just right. That is why we designed Hyfi Preschool. We wanted to create a resource that is the exact, right fit for your preschoolers, engaging them through specific learning styles that meets their needs and help them feel confident as they learn foundational truths of the Bible. Preschoolers follow the lead of the adults in their lives, so we’ve included intentional repetition through activities, Bible stories, and the monthly theme song. This repetition helps preschoolers understand Bible truths. Click To Tweet
Preschoolers learn through relationships and repetition. Relationships grow when a sense of belonging is cultivated. This is why Hyfi Preschool begins with Welcome Stations (younger preschoolers) and Connect Time (older preschoolers). These intentional times are designed for your boys and girls to connect with leaders and other friends. Preschoolers follow the lead of the adults in their lives, so we’ve included intentional repetition through activities, Bible stories, and the monthly theme song. This repetition helps preschoolers understand Bible truths and feel more confident in what they are learning.
Preschoolers learn through curiosity. They use their senses to explore the world around them. At Hyfi, we lean into that curiosity! Each week during large group, preschoolers discover a new super clue in the super box. This clue—an object preschoolers know and recognize—sparks curiosity and helps the preschooler connect the big deal (the big truth of the day) to the Bible. Through interactive media, preschoolers learn the foundational truths about who God is and how they were made for Him.
Preschoolers learn through play and hands-on experiences. Playing and learning are inseparable in the lives of preschoolers. Through play, a child learns and applies important Bible truths, relates positively to others, accepts responsibility, and learns to solve problems. In Hyfi Preschool, we play and have fun! Team Time is designed to involve preschoolers in active, side-by-side learning that ignites understanding and engagement to the simple truth they have been learning. Activity options that are low prep, simple, and creative allow leaders to choose the best fit for the preschoolers in their classes each week.
Every part of the Hyfi Preschool experience is intentionally designed with your preschoolers in mind, to engage through relationships, to lean into curiosity, and to connect learning to fun, hands-on experiences. Through Hyfi, your preschooler will experience the belonging they were made for and the true connection to the God who loves them.
