Pre-Kindergarten

preschool children

LIFE! Lutheran School’s Pre-Kindergarten a mixed class of 3 year olds and 4 year olds. You have the option to choose 3, 4, or 5 days a week for your child.

Our Pre-Kindergarten is an education program where learning takes place in a safe, loving, structured environment. Our classroom provides a daily routine where students are provided instruction in phonics and beginning math concepts with several manipulatives that provide learning through hands-on experiences. The daily routine also provides 30 minutes of outdoor play and exploration as well as center time, designed for children to use their imagination and to develop positive social interaction skills with their peers. Monthy themes incorporate Science, Art and History.

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are focus days for our 4 year olds. We work on letter sounds, the correct formation of our letters and numbers and follow the Saxon math program for Kindergarten. The goal is to work ahead so that children who are advanced will be challenged and children at grade level will be well prepared for our kindergarten program.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays our focus is on the 3 year olds. We work on letter recognition, colors, numbers, recognizing and writing their names and on social skills. Social skills include sharing, manners, and conflict resolution.

LIFE! Lutheran Pre-Kindergarten is dedicated to creating an exciting and educational first time school experience for your child. We believe that each child is created unique and special and we strive to educate the whole child in partnership with you, the parent. At LIFE!, Faith, Family, and Learning is what we are all about.
