“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
~ Proverbs 22:6
NURTURING THE CHILD
The East Richland Christian Preschool Program is Christ-centered and joins with parents in helping each child develop emotionally, physically, spiritually, and academically. As preschool students begin to spread their wings, our staff nurtures their inner-strength in order to develop their confidence and independence.
3-year old and 4-year old Preschool programs are available and have both full and half day options.
Students learn Pre-Kindergarten skills through instruction, creative play, discovery centers, field trips, and social interaction with peers. Students share in Bible stories and prayer and learn scriptures through music; this all helps their memorization skills and aids in future spiritual growth. The Preschool Program is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and its curriculum complies with all of the Ohio Standards for phonics and writing, math, social studies, and science.
We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children spiritually, physically, emotionally, academically, and socially as mandated in Deuteronomy 6. Our aim is to come alongside of our preschool families through cooperation and teamwork in order to provide a strong, Christian educational beginning for the child.
The goal of the East Richland Christian Preschool Program is to develop the total personality of the child by providing an education experience of lasting value. This approach addresses the following areas:
- Intellectually – by exploring and using first-hand experience which help to build an enthusiasm for learning.
- Physically – by offering experiences which will develop large and small muscle co-ordination and motor skills.
- Socially – by encouraging participation in group activities and getting along with others which will help bring a feeling of security and belonging.
- Spiritually – by inclusion of God’s Word interspersed in the daily program with Bible stories, verse memorization, and songs, as well as a special Bible time story each day.
