Spiritual Learning

 

Christ Lutheran PreSchool provides a non-denominational Christian curriculum component to our early childhood learning. Through that component, students have opportunities for spiritual learning. Examples of that component include:

 

  • Godly Play: Each month, students hear a favorite Bible story, which is introduced with figures and manipulatives that they can use to help tell the story. (For example: The story of Noah and the Ark includes a child-friendly boat with numerous pairs of animals.)
  • Spiritual Enrichment/Bible Time: During the month, our Pastor or PreSchool Director visits each classroom to remind children about the message from that month’s Godly Play story.
  • Family Chapel: Each month, families and care givers are invited to join their preschooler for Chapel Time. Children sing songs, recognize birthdays, and celebrate their day. (Note that out of an abundance of caution, Chapel is currently suspended to maintain a safe learning environment in light of COVID-19.)
