Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Blessed Beginnings preschool is a Christian outreach ministry of Christ The King Lutheran Church. Our traditional curriculum is wrapped in Christian values.
The purpose of Blessed Beginnings Preschool is to supplement early childhood learning already begun in the home and to provide developmentally appropriate experiences for children in a safe and nurturing environment.
It is our goal to support the families of our preschoolers and to provide opportunities for hands on activities that will promote creativity, self-esteem, pride in accomplishments, independence, and a solid foundation for future learning.
We, at Blessed Beginnings Preschool, understand that all children are a gift from God. In our Christian surroundings, children will develop into well-rounded young people. They will experience and begin their exploration of the wonderful world created by God. Children will be prepared educationally, spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically for today's world.

Outside Play Time: (11:10 – 11:30 a.m.)

Children are dismissed by the staff to parents or authorized drivers at the end of the school session. Dismissal may take place from the playground or the classroom, depending on the schedule for the day.
