What We Teach

Mt. Calvary Lutheran Preschool believes that parents are the child's first teachers. We believe that children learn best by working with hands-on experiences using their five senses: touching, seeing, hearing, smelling, and tasting in a creative learning atmosphere.

We recognize the uniqueness of each child and offer opportunities for growth by providing them with a positive, creative, and stimulating environment in which to develop and learn. It is our hope that in focusing on the whole child, with a strong emphasis on self-esteem, our children will enjoy continued success in the world.

We believe that play is to be respected as a vehicle for learning. Children use this mode to model, create, explore, solve problems, interact socially, pretend, and dream.

Hands-on learning includes:

  • Bible stories
  • Health and safety
  • Music and movement
  • In-house special events
  • Large/small motor skills
  • Offsite field trips
  • Language arts
  • Science/Nature
  • Number readiness
  • Social skills
  • Dramatic play
  • Creative art
