We believe that each child is unique and learns at their own pace. The Preschool is concerned with your child reaching goals through devolpmentally appropriate practices. With many hands-on experiences and opportunities, inquiry, teacher- and child-directed activities and discovery, we encourage the children in the following areas:
Social / Emotional Development: Your child will begin to learn to get along with other children, respect the rights and property of others, to share and take turns, accept limits and routines, and enjoy socializing at snack time. Your child will develop a positive self-image as they gain confidence by participating in individual and group activities and experiences.
Physical Development: Your child will begin to develop confidence in themselves as they grow in muscle coordination and use of gross motor skills through playground equipment, riding, exercises, rhythm, and music as well as fine motor skills through manipulation of toys, games, and art materials. Your child will be encouraged to develop whatever talents God has given them.
Cognitive Development: Your child will be challenged to become aware of and explore the wonderful world of nature and become more conscious of color, shapes, sizes, and the concepts that will later lead them to math and reading readiness.
Spiritual Development: Your child will experience God's love through adults and learn that Jesus is a very special friend who loves and cares. The Christian significance of holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter will be stressed. An important part of each month is a visit from the pastor who tells stories and sings songs with the children.
The Preschool is governed by a board of directors consisting of representatives from various committees of the Church, the Preschool Director, and Office Administrator.
