Faith Christian Preschool Philosophy
We at Faith Christian Preschool are vessels used by God to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, namely His love, forgiveness and salvation. Our Congregation and our church body, the Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod, have always emphasized education as a prime ingredient in our mission. It is our approach to teaching- an approach centered in Jesus- which we believe makes Faith Christian Preschool special. Because of this perspective, children are seen as unique and special gifts of God and are treated with love and respect. This is done in a natural, gentle, caring way by our dedicated staff. We are NOT a pushy or aggressive preschool, trying to make all children Lutherans. However, we will not teach anything with which we as Lutherans do not agree. We see ourselves as partners with parents in children rearing, and we respect other Christian traditions and experiences
