OUR SCHOOL

This preschool is a ministry of Cross of Glory Lutheran Church.  Our Mission, Guiding Principles, philosophy, and methodology spring from those which guide our congregation.  At the very heart of this faith community is a commitment to welcoming all people.  Therefore, ALL CHILDREN ARE WELCOME at the Welcome Place Preschool regardless of religious affiliation, race, color, sex, nationality, or ethnic origin.  We commit ourselves to offering a loving, learning environment to all God’s children.

OUR METHODOLOGY

We believe that preschool children learn best in a loving environment through play.  Therefore, each child is encouraged during free play to choose from a variety of developmentally appropriate activities.  The child’s learning is guided by his or her own active curiosity.  Free play is a time for social interaction with peers and adults, problem solving, experimentation, creative expression, decision making, large and small muscle development, manipulation and exploration of their world.

OUR LEARNING & GROWING OBJECTIVES

An appreciation for their own uniqueness and that of each individual

The values of love, joy, peace, courage, faith, generosity, and self-control that helps them grow into people of character

The education and social skills they need to succeed in future educational experiences

The unconditional love of Jesus and the presence of God in their everyday lives

An excitement towards a lifelong love of learning

OUR DAILY ACTIVITIES

Each day will include: prayer, music, art, story time, large and small motor activities, dramatic play, and healthy snacks.

CLASS SIZES

Our class size will ensure that each child receive special and individual attention.  There will not be more than 10 students per teacher. (In accordance with DCFS guidelines)
