ANOUNCEMENTS

EASTER!

We at CLM, want to wish all of you a Blessed and Happy Easter. The death of Jesus on the cross, guaranteed new and eternal life for all of us. It is with joy and thanksgiving that we celebrate the Risen Jesus! Our worship and music with the children has focused on the gift of New Life through Jesus.

It is such a blessing to see Easter through the eyes of children, who believe with such free abandon, faith and sincerity, that Jesus suff ered and died, and then lives again! No doubt and no question. May we all accept this gift of Jesus and may our response be one of thanks and gratitude to our Savior, who took it all, who took the fall, so we all would be saved.

Easter Means Salvation! Easter Means We Win!

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.

OUR HISTORY

Our Child Life Ministries began in 1979 with the Martin Luther Christian Day School corporation. Since then our ministry has grown to expand on the preschool by the addition child care and after school care. More on our History.
