“Play is the highest form of research.”—Albert Einstein

Summer is quickly approaching and so is the end of our school year. Our classrooms are full of 40 very excited and wonderful children ready to finish out the year with singing, dancing, playing, and creating. Along with our children, our garden is also blossoming. We love taking care of it and reaping the benefits!

This month we will be studying “Water, Water Everywhere”, which includes ponds, oceans and all things water. We will wind up the school year learning about summer fun. The teachers and children will be working hard to prepare for our end of the year program/graduation which will be held on Wednesday, May 31st at 6:00 p.m. in the fellowship hall. Please join us in this celebration! The last day of school will be Wednesday, June 7th and we will have a carnival in the courtyard.

The kids have learned so much this year. They have learned the alphabet, how to count and many other academic concepts but more importantly, they have practiced being kind and learned to love Jesus and each other. Our teachers strive to provide a warm, loving and enriching environment in which our children can learn. Your continuous support and generosity makes this possible. Together we have touched the lives of so many children. Thank you for helping to make our school great!

Philosophy of Advent Lutheran Preschool

It is the philosophy of Advent Lutheran Preschool that early childhood should be a time of exploring and discovery in a fun and safe environment. Preschool children are curious and eager to learn. The staff strives to nurture and encourage these qualities in all who attend.

The purpose of our preschool is to provide an atmosphere that encourages social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth which leads to the development of the child as a whole.

Planned within the framework of philosophy and purpose, Advent Lutheran Preschool’s curriculum includes early literacy, beginning math, sharing and conversation, stories, songs and movement to music, creative art activities, physical education, cooking, science, social studies, computers and bible story time.

The environment will allow hands on learning by loving teachers and will feature a low teacher-student ratio. Our learning environment is based on Christian principles and Advent Lutheran Church sponsors the preschool as a mission to its community.
