Good Shepherd Lutheran Church
A CHRIST-CENTERED PRESCHOOL WELCOMING ALL CHILDREN AGES 2 1/2 THROUGH 5 Our half-day Christ-centered preschool program was established in 1981 as a ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Good Shepherd’s daily program of Christian education relates to the experience of young children, addressing their complete developmental needs. In addition to addressing their educational, social, emotional, and physical needs, we provide a loving environment to nurture their spiritual needs. In an informal, caring atmosphere, learning centers and discovery activities build foundations for future academic growth. Preschool registration for the fall 2015 classes has begun. Open enrollment continues throughout the school year, class size permitting, as Good Shepherd maintains a low student/teacher ratio. The Christian curriculum used at Good Shepherd includes a rich combination of many resources. We use the Beginner’s Bible materials extensively in the classroom (Zondervan Publishers) as well as specific lessons from Early Childhood Devotions and publications from Concordia Publishing House, the Southern Early Childhood Association, and NAEYC. These materials relate to the experiences of the young child while providing Christian guidance. Our pastor, director of Christian education, or music director shares a Bible message each week in Chapel. Our weekly music program teaches the children many wonderful songs and provides them the opportunity to choose a simple musical instrument to play. In early December, all the children perform a Christmas program for their families and friends, followed by a fellowship event.
King of Kings Lutheran Preschool
King of Kings Lutheran Preschool serves as a ministry to the children and families of our church and as an outreach to our community. We first opened our doors in 2002 in the church education building. We have four classrooms, a kitchenette, bathrooms, administrative offices, and a wonderful fenced in playground with rubber mulch and a bike deck. All school related activities take place on the church campus. We have access to the church kitchen and use the fellowship hall for our in-house field trips, indoor recess, parent coffees, and receptions. The children spend time in the worship center for Chapel Time, evening music programs, and other scheduled activities. Our staff consists of a director, teachers, teaching assistants, an office assistant and a floating assistant. All staff members have a Christian church affiliation or profess a faith in Christ. Our teachers have a minimum of a B.A. or B.S. degree as do most of our teaching assistants. All staff members have experience in early childhood education and earn a minimum of 16 certification hours in professional development each school year. Each classroom is staffed with a teacher and a teaching assistant. Our teachers work closely together to create a developmentally appropriate curriculum and plan special activities and events. Once a week each class has a scheduled Music Time with a professional music teacher, who is also a part of our staff. Our music teacher is certified in Early Childhood Music and Movement, and has a B.A. in Early Childhood Education. Our preschoolers enjoy several in-house field trips throughout the school year. Our favorites include musicians, theatrical performers, puppeteers, community helpers, science, and fitness. Our four year olds also enjoy a monthly Story Time with a professional librarian. King of Kings Lutheran Preschool is licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services. Each staff member has on file a Criminal History Records Check and Central Registry Report conducted by Child Protective Services. Additionally, all staff members are certified in CPR and First Aid, PMAT, and have a current negative TB test on file.
