STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Trinity Lutheran Classical School’s Preschool seeks to:
-  Provide a firm foundation in the Christian faith at an early age, based on God's Word;
-  Incorporate Christian morals and values daily in the curriculum;
-  Provide a loving Christian atmosphere in which the young can grow and provide Christian teachers who are free to express their     faith in word and example;
-  Help children develop a prayer life and an appreciation and understanding of God's Word at an early age;
-  Provide a support network for all family members;
-  Develop a mission outreach to the community - children and their families;
-  Extend the church's activity into the community through community service.

SPIRITUAL OBJECTIVES

The objective of Trinity Lutheran Classical School’s Preschool is that everyone, through the Word and Spirit, may:
-  Know God and His seeking and forgiving love in Christ and respond in faith and love;
-  Identify themselves as a child of God, a member of Christ's Body;
- and as such: grow in self-understanding and self-acceptance, express His love through service to fellow human beings, relate    responsibly to His whole creation;
- And live in the Christian hope.

   In Deuteronomy 6:7, God directed ALL Israel to instruct children in the Word; they were to "teach His Word diligently to your children and...talk to them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise."

   We believe Lutheran Preschool is a way to allow the Word of God to permeate and saturate the life of the young child.

CURRICULUM

Curriculum  is what  happens  in  the preschool  classroom - the framework for all activities.  Children learn through using all five senses, so in the classroom, you   will see role-playing, block structures, classifying, sorting, counting, smelling, tasting,       and touching.  Children may be noisy and active; but learning is taking place.  Our curriculum covers the following areas:


  -  Spiritual growth and worship
  -  Language development
  -  Reading readiness
  -  Math concepts
  -  Health
  -  Science
  -  Social Studies
  -  Physical education
  -  Fine motor skills
  -  Hand-eye coordination
  -  Arts, Crafts and Music

This  curriculum is achieved by dividing our time between teacher directed    activities and individual, free-choice activities.  The CPH"VOYAGES  - Exploring God’s Word" curriculum and various supplements are used.  We encourage children to write using D'Nealian handwriting which they will use in the Miles City Public Schools.
