Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

We believe that early childhood is valid in itself as a vitally important stage of life. Peace Lutheran Preschool provides a safe, nurturing, Christian environment that promotes the development of each child physically, socially, emotionally, aesthetically, intellectually, linguistically, and spiritually. We believe learning is rooted in life experience that allow for exploration and discovery. We prepare an atmosphere where children are free to choose from a variety of materials and activities that involve and challenge them. We realize that children come to us with unique needs and backgrounds. Our program is a place where diversity is recognized and celebrated. We believe that relationships between parents and teachers are essential in order to provide for the maximum growth and development of each child. We encourage parent involvement and support interactions that allow parents and staff to work as a team. We believe that a quality early childhood program is based on knowledge of child development and learning. We ensure our program is of the highest quality by following the guidelines established by the NAEYC.

A Typical Day

Each class is set up in centers, allowing children many activity choices. Children have frequent opportunities to visit the homeliving, block, art, science/nature, manipulative, sensory, and book centers. In addition to theses activities, teachers plan activities centered around a weekly theme. Activities related to the theme may include art projects, group time, experiments, cooking, songs, stories, and occasional field trips. Children also participate daily in outside play on the shaded playground. Other activities include a weekly Chapel time as well as Creative Movement, a combination music and movement class. Lesson plans are posted outside each classroom to let you know what your child is learning each week. Weekly notes are also sent home to share classroom happenings and inform parents of upcoming events.
