Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

""Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6
Our Savior Lutheran Day Care is committed to a philosophy of providing a warm, loving Christian
environment that will allow children to develop a positive self-concept. They will realize their
uniqueness as God has created them, and will develop their spiritual, social, emotional, physical
and intellectual skills."

A Typical Day

"Our Savior Lutheran Day Care is a ministry and part of Our Savior Lutheran Church and our
Christian congregation. We will provide a quality Christian environment for your child that will
include sharing Bible stories, singing Christian songs, and the celebration of Lutheran holidays.
Along with sharing stories, Our Savior Day Care will provide a stimulating environment for your
child to grow and develop by offering different learning centers. We will develop learning centers
and activities based on the age and stage-appropriate levels of the children. Specific learning
centers and curriculum activities will foster your child's development by focusing on social
interaction, self-expression, spiritual growth, small and large motor skills, quiet and active
activities, and outdoor play. Children will go outside daily, weather permitting.
Children enrolled in Our Savior Day Care will occasionally go on small walks around the
neighborhood of the Day Care to visit the community, investigate, and learn about their
Our Savior Day Care will promote cultural diversity within the classroom by exposing children to
different areas of the world. This will be done in terms of the toys the children play with, items
hung on the walls of the Center, and through the use of books and music.
Children over the age of 2 will go outside daily unless the temperature is 0 degrees F., with or
without the wind chill, or above 90 degrees F. Children under 2 years of age will go outside daily
unless the temperature is below 20 degrees F. with or without the wind chill, or above 90 degrees F.
Parents must supply their child with proper clothing for outside play!
Our Savior Day Care will utilize the experience of field trips with the children. Parents will be
notified, in advance, when a field trip is going to occur. No child will be allowed to attend a field
trip without parental consent in the form of a signed permission slip. Non-walking field trips will
be scheduled based on availability of parent drivers. Drivers will need to have on file, at the Day
Care, a copy of their driver's license and verification of automobile insurance.
For children under 2 years of age, we will follow the guidelines designed specifically for their
routines, found in the intake information on the Child Under 2 form. They will be held, rocked,
sung and talked to, and given protected space to be on the floor and free to move and explore.
Experiences will be sensory--with activities that enhance smells, sounds, textures, tastes, and
interesting sights."
