At Royal Redeemer Lutheran School we believe that education today must include the education of the "whole" child - academically, mentally, socially, physically, and spiritually. We work with parents as partners to provide a personal, positive, hands-on Christian learning experience. Our purpose is to share the love of Jesus with each child and family in a nuturing, caring and loving environment. We strive to provide a quality early childhood program for 3, 4, and 5 year old children with meaningful learning experiences and learning centers. We also meet or exceed the standards of early childhood education by the state of Ohio.

Other subjects taught In addition to the excellent academic curriculum, our preschoolers will attend a preschool appropriate Chapel once per month. They will also have Jesus time in the classroom where they will listen to New and Old testament Bible stories, engage in art and craft activities related to the stories, and learn how Jesus would like us to be today.

From the Director:

We believe that preschoolers learn primarily through play and make their day full of fun activities that keep their attention and help them learn at the same time. They will also benefit from Library time, Field trips and in-house programs, Music, Physical Education, and Art.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Because we have a low teacher to student ratio, we have the ability to work with children on a very individualized basis. The basic curriculum is the same, but can be tailored to meet the varying needs of our many students.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that Christian education is a guide to every aspect of life. We should "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
Each child, created by God, is a unique individual. Royal Redeemer Lutheran School provides a spiritual and educational environment which will develop a student's potential as a child of God and as a responsible member of God's world.
The curriculum of Royal Redeemer Lutheran School will
provide a firm foundation in Religion, Language Arts, Fine Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Computer Technology, the Sciences, and introduction to Spanish. Emphasis will be placed upon the ability to use these subjects as a gateway to a world of knowledge that will
enrich his/her life and encourage lifelong learning.
Each child will be treated with respect and love, and the program will be geared to incorporate activities relevant to the student's individual needs. The school, church, and home will establish a cooperative partnership to lead the student to a knowledge and love of God and a life lived in a truly Christian manner.

There is also a monthly newsletter written by the preschool teachers for all preschool families that talks about themes for the upcoming month, finger-plays and songs, snack schedule, birthday's, and show 'n tell lists.

Separation

Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school

Handling Separation: From the Director

Our Teachers, Secretary, and Director are all skilled at helping children overcome separation anxiety. The child will be handled lovingly and reminded that his/her parent will surely be back to pick them up. They are often redirected to a fun activity and are happy and playing when the parents return.
