Jesus put His hands on the children and blessed them. (Mark 10:16b)
What a blessing it is to share school days with wonderful children at Apostles Lutheran Preschool! Apostles Lutheran Church is dedicated to providing a quality early childhood program in a safe and caring Christian environment for children each school year. We are an extension of the Children's Ministry program and licensed by the state of Florida. Our purpose is:
*To provide an uplifting and enjoyable setting where children learn, grow and develop
*To engage children in activities that will help them discover how wonderfully God has created them.
*To encourage children in Christian attitudes of respect, kindness, thoughtfulness, service, hope, forgiveness, peace, and love.
*To have children consider church as a great place to meet friends, to help others, to have fun, and to form life-long connections.
*To encourage and support parents in how they live out their God-given role as parents.
Our Christian curriculum goal is to help children develop competencies in social-emotional development, self-help skills, creative self-expression, large and small motor development, and intellectual growth. We believe a child's first encounter with school should be fun, within a positive and rewarding setting.
We provide a Christian learning environment, sharing God's love in our work and play through activities that include prayer, Bible stories, music, movement, crafts, songs, discussions, and opportunities for group concern and care.
Children’s progress is reviewed through a semester assessment. This assessment provides our teachers with reliable feedback regarding our student’s progress and development. Instructional adjustments are made towards accomplishing educational goals for all.
We considerate it a blessing to be able to partner with parents in the education of their children. Apostles Lutheran Church Preschool admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate with regard to race, color, gender, religion, or disability. This policy includes administration of its educational, admissions and scholarship policies.
