A Typical Day

"The Daily Schedule
Opening activities - Children's choice of a variety of activities from an art activity to manipulative, games, puzzles, pre-writing pre-reading and pre-math activities .

Snack - A Variety of Fruit/Vegetables, crackers, cookies, special treats for birthdays and celebrations! 100% Apple Juice

Outside Play - Children are encouraged to play together by using their words to communicate their needs with each other and with teachers. We focus on children gaining confidence in themselves by exploring their world and encourage them to think of ways to problem solve with each other throughout their day.

Inside Activities - Include (But not limited to) Story time, sharing, group activities, free play, developmentally appropriate academic learning activities, cooking, creative movement, sensory experiences in science, arts and crafts.

Chapel - Once a week the children go to Chapel which is held in the main sanctuary. The children learn a message of Christ's love for them through a Bible Story and sing songs together. The teachers are our very own Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd Staff Members including Senior Pastor Bob Rognlien, Teaching Pastor Greg Wallace, Youth Ministries leader Cindi Wallace, Children's Ministries Leader Ellen Paulson, Music Director Mark Emerson, Preschool Director Lisa Such, and Preschool teachers Dana Mitchell and Cheryl Cohn."
