Preschool News

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

February brings mountains of love! Pastor Jerry will teach our little learners about sharing the love of Jesus and we will share our love (and candy) in celebration of Valentine's Day. Through stories, activities and hands-on investigations, the kids will learn more about the weather including tornadoes and hurricanes. We'll have an on-site field trip with a dental hygienist to learn how to keep our teeth healthy. Our final theme for February is Growing Gardens when the children will learn all about seeds and how to create and care for gardens. We need to get our little preschool garden ready for planting. If anyone has soil, compost, mulch, seeds, plants or any other items to help our preschoolers create a beautiful garden, we welcome your donations.

Fall enrollment will begin this month. If you are interested or know someone who would enjoy becoming part of our school family, contact Kristina Ranieri at (904)272-6370 or email Check us out on Facebook to see some of the amazing things we do at preschool.

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!
