By the age of five it is our desire that all our preschoolers would know these three basic truths: God Made me, God Loves Me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Your child will participate in variety of activities that reinforce a monthly bottom line that is built upon one of these basic truths. If you would like to know what your child is learning this month, pick up a parent cue card located at your child's classroom door.
Sunday mornings are divided into four segments. When children arrive they will be welcomed with our Make it Fun activities. These activities are designed to grab preschoolers attention and prepare them to hear the bible story. Then they will travel to Butterfly Island. Here, preschoolers are encouraged to dance and sing during worship, act out their memory verse and participate in an interactive bible story. When they return to the room, they will participate in Make it Stick activities. These activities include creative crafts, games and snacks that reinforce the bottom line. Before dismissal, all preschoolers will gather in a small group for Make it Real. This is a preschoolers time to share what they have learned today, apply the bottom line, and learn to pray to God.
Each Sunday, we serve saltines and graham crackers for snack. If a new snack is served, we will post a sign at the door alerting you of the change. Be sure to note allergies in the check-in book and communicate with your child's teacher. If you child is potty training, make sure communicate their schedule with your child's teacher and ask for a potty training sticker to place on your child's security tag. Please label all your child's belongings. Your child will promote to the next classroom based on the school calendar. Promotion takes place in the spring.
