800 Belvoir Ave.,
Starting at $170/wk
Belvoir Christian Academy was established in Chattanooga, TN in 1887. For over 130 years, the school has been serving children from Pre-K through 8th grade. In addition, we serve INFANTS, starting at age six weeks, through Pre-K2, Pre-K3 and Pre-K4. Children may progress from Pre-K into our kindergarten, elementary and middle school programs. Open 6:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Beginning in the infant room, babies are nurtured and read to and engaged in play with a variety of infant developmental toys and books.
Once a child turns one-year-old (and must be walking well), Pre-K1, children take part in scheduled daily academic activities to prepare them for the next level of Pre-K2 and beyond.
Teachers work with the children each day on letter recognition and sounds, numbers, colors, shapes, calendar, weather, and as a private Christian school, students will receive daily biblical teaching through age-appropriate lessons. Children in PK3 and above attend the weekly chapel service on Wednesday mornings.
Children regularly work on arts and crafts projects to develop fine motor skills, and at this level, they also begin to understand socialization skills and are encouraged to use simple manners, share play items and and take turns in their daily activities.
For children in PK4 and under, nutritious lunches and two snacks daily are provided in the weekly tuition. We have a fully-equipped kitchen and cafeteria where healthy meals are prepared and served. Infants - PK2 eat lunch within their classrooms. PK3 and above students travel to the cafeteria to eat lunch as a group.
By Tennessee state law, children in PK4 and under must be provided a nap/rest time of at least 1.5 hours. After lunch, children will lie down for nap with their designated nap mats or cots.
The PK1 and PK2 classes both have separate playground areas with age-appropriate equipment. PK3 and above have access to a large playground with multiple pieces of playground equipment to suit all ages. Children have the opportunity to play outside each day, weather-permitting, and have separate recess times from the older students. The school also has a full-size gymnasium to allow children ample room to play when weather does not allow for outside play time.
Belvoir Christian Academy's mission is to make disciples of Jesus, encourage lifelong learning and value students in a nurturing environment. We partner with families to teach, love, nurture and support children through each stage of their young lives
