On Monday and Tuesday of each week, all classes come to the St. Luke Sanctuary for Chapel. This is a time for children to learn about God’s love by hearing Bible stories presented in a way that is meaningful to a young child. It is also a time to celebrate God’s love through singing!
It is important to us that the children in our pre-school learn through their play. Therefore, we offer a variety of activities that give the children hands on experiences, such as crafts, stories, games, music, computers, and special events.
Throughout the school year we host many special events that allow you to be a part of your child's learning center such as; Boohoo Breakfast, Donuts with Dad, Moms Day Tea, Preschool Sunday, Trunk-or-treat, Easter Egg hunt, Thanksgiving Program, and much more!
Music, Movement & Sensory
Music & Movement sensory is a time for pre-schoolers to hear different types of music: slow and fast, loud and soft, traditional, spiritual, and classical. Not only do children listen, move, sign, and play games to music, they also experience the wonderful sounds of different instruments. The children will experience bouncing on a trampoline, and walking a balance beam. These exercises help the children to strengthen their large and small motor skills while having FUN!
During center time in the 3 and 4 year old classrooms the children will have an opportunity to explore online educational programs on kids-edition Kindle Fires. Each tablet is child-safe pre-downloaded with several educational options for the children to explore.
