At Moline Christian School, kindergarten is a wonderful time of learning and experiencing new things in a safe and loving environment.  Riding a bus to school, going to school all day, learning to read, and being exposed to a full curriculum are important stepping stones that help prepare these young people for first grade.  

We realize this is a pivotal year for age group and offer two options to parents.

Kindergarten Options

   Option 1:     Progressive Kindergarten                     

                       M-W-F full day (1st semester) and M-T-W-Th-F full day  (2nd semester)  

   Option 2:     Full days M-F all year long
