The Components of our Pre-K Learning Curriculum

Your child will benefit from the learning methodology based on the High Scope curriculum. The following daily activities as prescribed by the High Scope Curriculum will make the most of your child’s creative and intellectual development:

Bible Story – a time to learn of Jesus and God’s saving grace through daily devotions, prayers, Bible lessons, and Bible verses. The children are also invited to sing in designated church services throughout the year including a Children’s Christmas Service.

Circle Time – a time where children sit together and participate in activities related to the weekly themes including songs, finger play, storybooks, action rhymes, and stories with flannel board illustrations all designed to spur creativity and enhance their imagination.

Bean Table – From the small motor skill of scooping to the science and math skill of measuring, the bean table encourages experimentation and curiosity.

Handwriting Center – cutting, coloring, tracing, gluing, and more! This center is designed to strengthen small muscles for writing and builds your child’s left to right eye and hand to eye coordination.

Creative Art – open-ended projects such as painting and picture collages encourage their imagination.

Outside Games and Activities – no child should be cooped up indoors all day! Outdoor activities help children explore the wonders of nature and enjoy the benefits of unstructured physical play.

Playdough Table – a place for your child to create and to build small motor skills essential for handwriting

Block Area – an area with multiple sizes and types of blocks for building and creating. It is a wonderful area for learning the scientific skills of gravity and balance, as well as the social skills of cooperation and teamwork.

Manipulative and other Toys – an area to imagine and create, also building social skills of sharing, taking turns, and cooperation

Housekeeping Area – an area to pretend and imagine, share and cooperate

Small Group Time – This time is intentionally planned and teacher-directed to work on specific skills and knowledge for future academic success.

Religious Curriculum

Lambs of Grace Preschool is an extension of Grace Lutheran Church and School, created to share God’s Word and love with your young child. It is our prayer that through our preschool, Jesus will become your child’s Best Friend. May Jesus stay that Best Friend throughout your child’s life! We are here to direct your child to follow in Jesus’ footsteps by helping your child to:

  • Develop a sense of trust
  • Realize their need for God’s love
  • Know Jesus as their personal Savior
  • Respond to God’s love in their lives
  • Feel secure in God’s love and care
  • See themselves as God’s children

The Learning Environment at Grace

At Lambs of Grace Preschool, we want your child to feel secure and to flourish that is why we create a safe atmosphere with supervision, cooperation, sharing, respect, honesty, and positive guidance practiced. Behavioral correction is part of your child’s learning process. We believe discipline does not have to be traumatic. Inappropriate behavior is addressed with loving yet firm practices such as logical consequences, time-outs, or loss of privileges. We are assisting you in preparing your children for the responsibilities and goals they will undertake to lead happy, fulfilling lives.
