The A Beka Curriculum is a Christian approach to education.  This early  learning  program is   based   on   sound   scholarship,   common sense and the Bible. Thousands of Christian and    Private    Schools    around    the    world are successfully using this program. This traditional approach to education keeps learning lively, interesting and memorable. Scriptural and character building truths are woven throughout every book.

Developed with over 30 years of actual classroom experience, this method of teaching prepares children for accelerated academics. Considering the years of testing and classroom experience, you can rest assure your child is receiving nothing less than the highest quality education.

We are delighted to receive such positive feedback from parents, teachers and children concerning this program. We are equally excited to be able to continue offering this highly acclaimed curriculum at the Promise Land Preschool.

Promise Land Preschool programs offer a Christian philosophy of education and a Christian environment for growth. Our programs stress writing, phonics, numbers, health, safety and manners.
