Train children in the ways that they should go, and when they are old they will not stray. PROVERBS 22:6
And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him. LUKE 2:40
About Family of Christ Preschool
Family of Christ offers a faith-based, positive, safe, nurturing, fun environment where young children learn through play. The program is designed to meet the individual needs of two- to five-year old children (not yet enrolled in kindergarten) in their spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical growth.
FoC Preschool is licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health & Human Services and our curriculum meets the Minnesota Core Competencies of Learning. Our entire staff attends continuing education courses in early childhood development each year. Staff also receives health & safety training yearly, and CPR & First Aid training.
Our classroom are arranged to include a variety of interest centers, where children may choose from a wide assortment of activities. These centers ensure that children develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically — areas of development which happen simultaneously. In our classrooms we have an art center, block center, book center, dramatic play center, table games/manipulatives center, sensory table, science center, and a writing center.
Parent/guardian involvement is strongly encouraged in every part of the program. Parents/guardians are welcome to visit any time, and we encourage everyone to attend at some time during the year. Our commitment to our families includes:
- A parent/guardian and student orientation
- Fall/spring conference for each family
- An open door policy
- Monthly & classroom newsletter to keep families up-to-date
- A positive approach to behavior guidance
