ANOUNCEMENTS

SETPTEMBER IS BUSY…..

September is busy for many of us as we start the back to school routines! The preschool and 4K sta" were busy welcoming all of their new friends and families. It doesn’t take long for the little ones to get into their daily routine when they come to school! Most of the children are eager to hang up their backpacks and come into the room to start their day! Some of them still start their day with a tear or two…but it doesn’t take long for them engage with their friends and start playing!

Usually, this time of year we enjoy being outside as much as we can. However, the last couple of weeks the mosquitoes have made it not so fun to be outside! It is so nice to be able to go into the Family Life Center and let the children burn some energy. We’re hoping the mosquitos will stop having so much fun on our playground so we can enjoy it soon too!

Child Life Ministries is blessed to be welcoming so many families back for another year and to have so many new families join our CLM Family! The school year has started o" great and the sta" is looking forward to another fun year!

Blessings,

OUR PHILOSOPHY/MISSION

Philosophy

We believe that in order for children to grow and learn, they must have a program that provides a nurturing and comfortable environment that is structured to meet the physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of each individual child. Our program focuses on the development of the whole child. Our philosophy has its roots in our Christian belief that each child is a special and unique gift from God. Our philosophy is also largely based on the work of Erikson and Piaget and so we feel that children develop sequentially from one stage of development to another. Therefore, we provide children with opportunities that will challenge them and aid in their progression from one stage to the next. We also believe that children learn by doing. Active learning and its components are important parts of our curriculum.

Mission Statement

McFarland Lutheran Child Life Ministries is an outreach ministry of McFarland Lutheran Church to the young children of our community and their parents. Academic growth evolves through Christian care, worship, music, art, play, sharing, and story. Our school and childcare center embody a Christian atmosphere of love, acceptance, grace, and forgiveness to each individual child.
