Seeds of Faith Preschool will not be opening the 2020-2021 school year. This decision was based on many factors: Covid-19, student enrollment numbers, and Douglas Co. School System’s decision to do virtual learning.
Our Preschool seeks to offer children various age-appropriate experiences so that they may begin to learn how to live as God’s creation in God’s world according to the Bible. Luke 2:52 states, “And Jesus increased in wisdom [mental], and in stature [physical], and in favor with God [spiritual], and man [social and emotional].” We strive daily to include opportunities for growth in each of these areas. Each class has an established routine to provide stability so the children feel a sense of security but also learn about limitations. Free play during the morning gives flexibility to the schedule so they may learn to make independent decisions and interact with peers. A typical day at FPC Seeds of Faith Preschool will include:
Center time – Dramatic play, puzzles, arts, blocks, science, reading
Large group time (3’s and 4’s only) – Discussion of daily activities, a Bible story, the weather, calendar, and different themes/subjects as they occur through the year
Small group time – Quieter opportunities for individual work, learning centers, or language instruction
Outdoor activity time – A time for children to climb, run, jump, and use large muscles (the youth center gym will be used in case of inclement weather)
Snack time – An opportunity to get nutritious refreshment and socialization
Music – Songs and movement will be incorporated into activities. Children will attend music class once a week
Bible Buddies — Every other week, a class for all ages with stories, puppets and fun activities learning about God’s word
Chapel – Every other week - the 3’s and 4’s will visit the sanctuary for songs, a bible story, and prayer time with one of the pastors or staff members
Spanish– Once a week, the 3’s and 4’s will have Spanish class. They will learn basic words in Spanish like colors and numbers through songs and activities
Library– Once a week, the 4’s will have story time and an opportunity to “check out” a book from our Library
Young children are “hands-on” learners. They need a variety of three-dimensional materials with which to investigate and create. We encourage center-style activities with an emphasis on learning by doing, problem solving, and discovery. Children will explore number concepts, letters, sound, shapes, and colors in a way that is appropriate for their developmental level.
Seeds of Faith will not be open for the 20-21 school year. We hope to re-open for the 21-22 school year.
