"The philosophy of Christ Lutheran Preschool centers around the idea that each child is a unique individual and should be recognized as someone special. We use a developmental approach of learning, which stresses hands-on activities through a child's play. We believe that a Christian education enables a child to discover that our God is a God of love. Our prayer is that each child may grow and mature under God's direction and inspiration.
We stress the total development of the child; spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical. We believe that our preschool is a servant of Christ striving to bring church, home and community into closer harmony. Our discipline policy at Christ Lutheran is displayed in a Christ-like manner by praising good behavior, changing the environment, redirecting a child, or quietly removing a child from the group when necessary. These are the following steps we take when the behavior warrants it:
1. The teacher notifies the parent by use of a written note or phone call.
2. A conference is set with the parents, teacher, and preschool director. A plan is formed to help stop the behavior.
3. A conference is set with the parents, preschool director, and the principal to discuss further options.
The communication between the child, teacher, and parents is extremely important for self-esteem, trust, and growth to take place. The results of this will be a well-rounded Christian personality that acknowledges the presence of Christ in his daily life."
