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

School is back in session and our little ones are as excited to be here as we are. Our teachers are getting to know our new and returning learners and our students are learning about our school. A successful year starts with getting to know the children and helping them get comfortable in a new environment. So we will take some time to make the children feel at home in their classrooms and helping them come together as a learning community. We have so many amazing things planned for the upcoming school year but these first few weeks of school will focus on getting to know each other, learning the rules of the school and exploring all we have to offer: science, cooking, library and art appreciation classes as well as getting familiar with the playground and all the learning centers in the “big room.” Our academics will center on learning our names; recognizing friends by names; identifying our own printed names, introduction to the alphabet and numbers and find out what our little ones know and want to know. The courtyard looks wonderful! We will spend some time exploring the new plant life and any animal life that comes to visit. Outdoor adventures are a wonderful way to let children investigate their world and stimulate their imaginations. Thank you to all of you who worked so hard to make this area beautiful again. We are always looking for new friends at the preschool so if you or someone you know has a child 15 months through 5 years old, contact me, Kristina Ranieri, at (904) 272-6370 or

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.
