Curriculum

Calvary Lutheran Preschool strives to prepare our students for Kindergarten socially and academically. 

We follow a consistent daily schedule.  This includes circle time, learning and play centers, art, music, snack, and recess. 

Our curriculum builds upon a foundation for beginning learning.  This includes letters and numbers, and colors and shapes, and lots of literacy! We also encourage healthy habits and manners. We have chapel on a weekly basis and learn Bible stories, Christian songs, and gather an offering to help the sick children at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Our music time is a daily preschool-wide event.  Songs are secular and religious in nature; we also use instruments and a lot of movement! 

 

Please Remember to Refer to your One in Christ Curriculum.
