First Lutheran Preschool/Daycare is a state licensed childcare program. We admit students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin. Our Preschool program is a ministry of service, fellowship and evangelism shared through Christian nurturing of young children and their families in our community. This distinctively Christian emphasis promotes excellence in education by engaging children in age-appropriate curriculum with both group and individual interaction. And as members of the Family of God, we share our faith and joy in Christ by nurturing the spiritual, psychological, emotional and social needs of each unique child of God in a safe, healthy, and loving environment. The lead teachers in each of the classes are certified and licensed.
Preschool classes meet on the same schedule as elementary classes. The classes are open to any child who has turned 3 or 4 by August 1st of this year. Our curriculum is based on years of experience working with preschool children. We use an emergent program in which each child is assessed for their own personal strengths and weaknesses. Each child is encouraged to develop to his/her own God given potential.
Our goal is to provide a program of excellence that provides great kindergarten readiness while meeting the needs of the families whom we serve. The following schedule is planned for next year:
- Morning Preschool for 3 and 4 year olds will run from 8:00 am to 11:00 am Monday – Friday. Children will spend time learning letters and sounds, counting… and other important skills and practices that will prepare them for success in kindergarten and beyond. Each class will have a dedicated teacher and appropriate assistance from teacher aides.
- Afternoon enrichment will run from 11:00 am – 3:10 pm daily and will include rest time and special activities in art and music, science, and other fun learning experiences. Those children staying for the afternoon program will have a lunch period from 11:30 – noon; a lunch service will be available for purchase or students may bring a sack lunch. Various teachers and aides will collaborate to make this a great program.
