General School Mission

Palm Valley Lutheran Cooperative Preschool is nonsectarian,
valuing variety and difference in background among its families
as well as deep commitment to growth and education of children.

PVLCP GOALS:

Educational goals of PVLCP are to offer opportunities for children to:

*Grow spiritually through their awareness of God's world
*Learn to use their muscles and senses with increasing control
*Become aware of their own feelings and emotions as natural and acceptable and to learn to express them in constructive ways
*Enjoy the company of other children, see themselves as individuals and grow in independence, self-confidence, and self-control
*To explore books, dramatic play, art, music/movement and a variety of hands-on activities in order to sharpen their ability to observe, listen, follow directions and communicate while keeping a sense of wonder
*PLAY AND HAVE FUN!!!

We strive to maintain a balanced awareness of the relationships between social, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual growth.
