One In Christ Curriculum
Centered on our Savior, Jesus; One in Christ offers a solid Christian curriculum to help young learners be more familiar with the Bible and to grow in their faith. As the Old and New Testament Bible stories are relayed to children, they grasp the concepts that God created us and loves us, Jesus is our Friend, and we can in turn show our love for Jesus by helping others and in kindness toward our classmates, teachers and all whom we meet.
Using this curriculum as a guide, our teachers follow a play-centered approach to learning that teaches children through hands on experiences. Our role is to prepare children for school by ensuring they are socially, emotionally and academically prepared to learn. You will see this philosophy in action, as your children stretch their skill sets, learn to negotiate with others and master the art of self-regulation.
Philosophy of Education
The staff of Trinity Lutheran Preschool view each child as a unique, precious child of God. Through the work of the Holy Spirit, it is our privilege to help carry out Christ’s command to care for the youngest of His Kingdom in a partnership with their parents. Our special joy is leading them to Jesus on a daily basis during formal “Jesus Time”, weekly Chapel services, and daily opportunities to pray and sing. We also like to share moments of forgiveness and spontaneous expressions of Christian faith development.
Our daily goal is to help develop the whole child; spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. Each child is led to experience God’s world in a joyful, natural way. We offer learning experiences that foster creativity and self-expression. Our staff models a love for learning and their commitment to children as they celebrate the milestones of discovery each day.
We strive to provide a safe environment that offers comfort and care for our children meeting their developmental needs in a visually appealing, clean, and inviting atmosphere. The children learn to trust and gain confidence when their physical and emotional needs are met in a consistent, loving atmosphere.
