All God's Children Preschool at Living Lord Lutheran Church

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).

All God's Children Preschool 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.

Program Description 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.

Staff Teachers are selected for their experience, caring and understanding of preschool aged children. Upon employment, all new teachers, regardless of prior schooling, must complete state certification by taking a 40 hour child care course and are encouraged to begin the process of attaining a Child Development Associate Degree (C.D.A.) if they do not already have one. Teachers complete 10 hours a year of continuing education, attend in-service training, attend monthly staff meetings and are encouraged to attend conferences, seminars and workshops that relate to child development.

Daily Schedule Each teacher is encouraged to set her own schedule based on the ages and needs of her particular classroom. An example of a prior preschool schedule is listed below.
