Preschool News

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

After an amazing year full of discoveries and learning, our school year is coming to a close. The Graduation Ceremony/End of the Year Program was wonderful! I am so proud of all our little ones. Thank you to Ms. Laura for stepping in to take on our music program and performance. Her hard work and dedication are truly appreciated! We have one final celebration before our little ones head off to enjoy summer vacation. Our last day of school is June 6th and we will celebrate with a mini carnival in the courtyard: games, food and a bounce house!

Our school continues to be a center full of hard-working and loving teachers where children can come to learn and explore. There are so many people who do so much for us. Pastor Jerry brings the bible to life with music. Ms. Irene thrills the children with magic in the kitchen and an appreciation for art. Ms. Amy enthralls our little learners with hands on science experiments and wonderful stories. And of course, our classroom teachers are so dedicated to making Advent preschool a place full of love and love of learning.

In addition to all these wonderful people who actively teach our students, the support of the congregation has such a huge impact on the success of our school. From the generosity of parishioners helping to provide scholarships, the quilters for providing a demonstration and supplying mini quilts for our students, to the Property Board for all their work in keeping our facility safe and attractive and all the smiling faces we encounter in our daily journeys, you are all so very important.

In that same vein, please consider giving to the preschool scholarship fund to help a deserving child attend our preschool. Partial to full scholarships are awarded to families based on financial need.

While our children will be home for the summer, we will be preparing for a new and exciting school year. If you or someone you know is interested in our program, I can be reached at (904)272-6370 or throughout the summer.

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.

We would love for your family to become part of our family!
