All Pre-School and Kindergarten CCE classes are currently full. You may come by the RE center to look at Home study materials as an alternative.
PreK - K CCE and Home Study families will use the Our Sunday Visitor textbook series, I Am Special. Through this series, children age 3,4,and 5 are “empowered to explore, discover, and learn more about themselves, about their relationships with others, and about God's marvelous creation." (Joan and Paul Plum Authors of I Am Special Series.)
OVERVIEW OF PRESCHOOL PROGRAM
Preschool children are not ready to absorb complicated religious beliefs. Religion for them is understandable in terms of their own experiences. This religious formation program, therefore, draws upon scriptural themes for many of its lesson topics and relates these to the children’s everyday experience and level of understanding.
AGES 3-5 CURRICULUM
Reinforcement of Christian values and attitudes being taught at home.
Participation in Christian learning experiences and activities
An introduction to community worship through active participation in prayer and song.
Fellowship and fun with children their own age.
To develop positive attitudes about themselves, their family, and friends by discovering and learning more about the many gifts, talents, and abilities that God has provided.
