Also, the 4-year-olds have lunch and nap time.

Program Philosophy: We believe that it is important for our students to learn more about Jesus and His love for them! We accomplish this through Jesus time, worship, and prayer time. We also believe that it is important for our students to gain confidence and curiosity in exploring their world. We do this through exploratory and interactive play and organizing our curriculum around different themes. We believe that students need and grow through socialization. We do this by providing time for students to play and work together and by helping students work through conflicts they encounter.

Curriculum Type: Our religion curriculum is distinctly Lutheran Christian. A lot of our letter, writing, and number work is done through curriculum from Learning Without Tears.

Student/Teacher Ratios: We meet state standards, plus several of our rooms have an extra adult to service students with behavioral needs.

Number of employees (including teachers and support staff): 2

Meals Provided: Breakfast for both age groups can be bought at school or brought from home, lunch for 4-year-olds can be bought at school or brought from home,  and afternoon snack for 4-year-olds is provided by school.
