All God's Children Preschool is for ages 2 to 5 years of age, and is conducted on Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM during the normal school year (see below). It is a non-profit program of Living Lord Lutheran Church, established as a mission of the church to care for young children
with God's love. We are a Christ-centered preschool and welcome all families that God brings to us. We see each child as an individual with
varying needs, interests, and abilities. Our teachers offer kindness, guidance, and support in their care for the children and see each as
an unique gift from God. We welcome all families regardless of race, creed, color, sex, national origin, religion, or handicapping condition.
Describe AGC's Program
The National Association for the Education of Young Children (N.A.E.Y.C.)
believes that "a high quality early childhood program provides a safe and nurturing environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and
cognitive development of young children while responding to the needs of families." All God's Children Preschool is committed to
providing just such an environment. Children learn best through a planned, play-oriented approach to education and our curriculum reflects this
practice by including sharing and conversation time, stories, songs, finger plays; creative art activities, construction/building opportunities,
hands-on math experiences, games and fine and gross motor activities. We will also provide many cooking and science/nature activities and celebrate
birthdays, holidays, and special events that affect the children's lives. Our classrooms and activities are designed to stimulate imaginations.
We incorporate a healthy balance of child-directed and teacher-directed activities, indoor and outdoor experiences and active and quiet times
throughout each day.
