Pinnacle® is a research-based early childhood curriculum that encourages children to develop emerging skills in all developmental areas while discovering and experiencing God’s love.
With lessons that engage children in developmentally appropriate activities, the interactive activities in the Pinnacle® curriculum help children develop a love for learning while they are growing, playing, and having fun. Long range goals within the curriculum are linked to key industry standards.
At Champions Academy of Cypress, children are given the opportunity to discover and explore in a rich child-centered environment, supported by small and large group activities throughout the day. Our Preschool Program promotes a balance of positive learning and play, realizing that play is children’s “work”.
Children gain self-confidence as they independently explore Learning Centers equipped with activities that support dramatic play, math, creative art, language arts, social studies, science, music, blocks and computers. These activities form the foundation for a lifetime love of learning.
Our experienced and dedicated teachers continue to nurture the children with positive words and hugs as they provide a variety of activities that will strengthen their social, cognitive and motor skills as well as their creativity and independence.

Announcing Kindergarten Club
Starts the week of January 8th, 2018
What is Kindergarten Club?
Kindergarten Club typically starts in January during the last year of preschool. This unique program is designed to help our students become more comfortable with the transition into Kindergarten, fine tune the skills necessary to enter elementary school and celebrate this upcoming special milestone in their lives in a variety of fun and challenging ways.
What can my child expect at Kindergarten Club?
Students will be exposed to a variety of Kindergarten readiness skills: writing practice, imagination development, journaling, science, math and literature-based activities. Through our thoughtfully planned curriculum, our students will develop longer attention and concentration spans while learning the basic concepts that are expected in Kindergarten. In addition our students will learn critical safety skills like reciting and writing their address and telephone number as well as understanding when and how to dial 911.
What are your outcomes of Kindergarten Club?
A 2016 research study shows 93% of Cadence Education® students to be ready for Kindergarten (we don’t want to brag, but 70% tested at an advanced readiness for kindergarten).*
Our students are very proud to be a part of Kindergarten Club. They wear their special Kindergarten Club T-shirt and personal name badge with pride. By June they have a wonderful collection of the special activities they’ve completed, compiled in their K-Club Book.
Why is Kindergarten Club important?
We personally believe Kindergarten Club reduces or eliminates the anxiety and apprehension children may experience with the thought of leaving the comfort of their friends and teachers at preschool. Kindergarten Club helps to build confidence and creates a smooth and worry-free transition into elementary school for all.
A recent article in Bloomberg titled “Ten Reasons Why Early Childhood Education Pays Off”, states that “when a young child enters kindergarten ready for school, there is an 82 percent chance that child will master basic skills by age 11, compared with a 45 percent chance for children who are not school ready.”
Champions Academy of Cypress takes a Christian & traditional approach to education. We teach the Pinnacle® Curriculum starting with our Infants. Pinnacle® is a research-based early childhood curriculum that encourages children to develop emerging skills in all developmental areas while discovering and experiencing God’s love. With lessons that engage children in developmentally appropriate activities, the interactive activities in the Pinnacle® curriculum help children develop a love for learning while they are growing, playing, and having fun. Long range goals within the curriculum are linked to key industry standards.
