Grade 6 Teacher
The early childhood years are an exciting time of growth and development! Here at Peace Lutheran Preschool we offer a well-planned program with a wide variety of experiences to develop young minds and bodies. We are dedicated to the growth of the whole child. Our program provides a balance between free play and teacher-directed learning activities. Learning takes place in a warm, friendly and relaxed setting. Learning materials are easily accessible to the children. These experiences provide a pleasant and enjoyable approach to discovery and creativity. We offer Panther Cubs (age 2 with an adult), 3s, 4s and Young 5s.
Our Mission is "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.“ Proverbs22:6
Our goal is to partner with preschoolers and their parents during these critical, formative years. We will walk alongside you as we teach children the love and Word of God.
Our program is designed with your child in mind. We provide a safe, nurturing environment with experienced teachers who love God and love His children. Classroom routines and daily lessons are strategically planned to help each child develop social skills and gain knowledge in preparation for a lifetime of learning.
Our day consists of a balance of large group, small group, and independent activities. In each area we look for opportunities to help children learn, laugh, and recognize how amazing God has made each of us. A typical day includes: learning centers, free choice play, large group/circle time, Jesus time, stories, outdoor/gym time, music and movement, snack time, and closing prayers.
