Christ Lutheran Preschool partners with parents in nurturing young children in a Christian environment, assisting them to grow spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually.

Philosophy Statement

So that the Children may…”Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18)

We Believe:

  • Early childhood education is an integral part of Christ Lutheran Church’s mission and ministry.
  • The young child is a gift from God and learns best about God’s world through experimentation and exploration.
  • Each child is a unique and special child of God and we encourage the development of Christ-esteem and individuality.
  • Children learn best through play and by developmentally appropriate activities provided as avenues for learning.
  • Early childhood education provides a warm and loving Christ-centered environment where children can develop to their fullest potential physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and spiritually.
  • Early childhood education is a ministry to young children and their families.
  • Early childhood education is a joint ministry that involves the congregation, the community, the staff the family, and the child.
