Birth – Kindergarten

Partnering with parents to capture the hearts of our preschoolers for Jesus!

Objective: for preschoolers to realize:

  • God made them
  • God loves them
  • Jesus is their friend

Our strategy to accomplish this:

  • Teach basic truths through active learning.
  • Provide a safe, clean, loving, nurturing environment where basic needs are met and parents can feel secure about leaving their child in our care.
  • Training new parents.
  • Training for parents and preschool teachers throughout each year.
  • Nurture families by providing childcare and family-oriented activities throughout the year.
  • Encourage consistent feedback from parents and preschool teachers to ensure we are meeting our vision, objectives and strategies.

Curriculum

Sunday Preschool Park utilizes TRU Curriculum. TRU curriculum takes our preschoolers on a chronological journey through scripture. It is a 3 year study plan and children will see how the Bible is not a series of unrelated stories, but one big story about God’s plan for salvation. We utilize this curriculum to better help parents to have discipleship discussions with their children regarding the scripture being studied.
