How do you share the Christian faith in Preschool?
St.John’s Preschool is part of the Children, Youth and their Families ministry at St. John’s Lutheran Church. We are a Christ-centered preschool where prayers and Christian Education time are part of each day. Holidays, including religious holidays, are celebrated. We do recognize, respect and encourage a culturally diverse experience for all children.
This is a general guideline to St. John’s Two Year Old Class:
Making friends and maintaining friendships, playing cooperatively with other children, beginning to use turn-taking in play, and participating in social activities.
Language Skills - Expressive
Speaking skills; expressing wants, needs and thoughts verbally, using language to interact with peers, a range of vocabulary, and using speech that can be understood knowing an Two year old is more able to understand than to verbalize.
Language Skills - Receptive
Listening skills; responding to verbal requests knowing an Two year old requires modeling or demonstration along with verbal directions, and recognizing common sounds in the environment.
Early Literacy Skills
Interest in reading activities.
Small Muscle Skills
Eye-hand coordination, and exploring materials of different textures.
Large Muscle Skills
Balance, coordination, and sense of direction e.g. up, down, beside.
Adjusting to change in routine, consistency of behavior and mood, labeling emotions of others, showing a range of emotions, learning to express anger and frustration appropriately, understanding the consequences of behaviors, and beginning to use words to solve problems with peers.
Following the daily classroom routine, transitioning from one activity to another, and paying attention during group activities.
What is the average class size?
The average class size for our Two Year Old Class is six children.
Can I enroll after preschool has begun in September?
Yes, we always welcome new students throughout the school year based on available openings.
We recognize and work with parents of children with food allergies.
Nutritious foods need to be considered when choosing a snack; suggestions are fruit or vegetables, crackers, cheese, fruit juice or milk. Birthday and holiday snacks may include some sweet treats.
