Jesus Loves Me Weekday Preschool

A nurturing weekday environment where your child can grow socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually.

Social

Through group activities, play and interaction with children and teachers in small groups or individually, children will learn to work successfully in a social situation.

Emotional

Development of a healthy self-concept, having the opportunity to try new things in a loving and accepting environment.

Physical

Opportunities for development of gross motor skills such as eye-hand coordination and balance, as well as fine motor skills such as cutting and lacing (these latter skills to be developed according to the individual maturity of the child.)

Intellectual

Focusing on language development skills such as vocabulary enrichment, listening skills, the concept of left and right, etc, and developing cognitive skills such as one-to-one counting, matching objects, and comparing objects through hands-on activities.

Spiritual

Biblical truths such as "God loves me," "I can share," etc., will be taught through simple Bible stories and related learning activities.

Biblical truths will be integrated into every part of the child's learning experience.

Jesus Loves Me Preschool uses the READY! For Kindergarten age level targets developed by the Washington State Department of Early Learning and Development for skills identified by research as having the highest correlation to success in school—specifically learning to read and do math early and well. We use these targets as we plan our lessons and progress through the year.

All classes meet 9:00-11:45am

 

2 year old program – 3 days a week 

  • Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday
  • Tuition $150/month 

The Two year old class is for the child that will be two by August 31 st.  JLM divides the children into two classes based on their birthdates.  Six months makes a huge difference in development during the preschool years and we have found this excels the learning process.  Both classes offer exposure to alphabet/numbers, music, fine/gross motor skills, social development and biblical truths at different levels.  This class takes a field trip each year to the Pumpkin Patch and may offer additional trips depending on class dynamics.

The three-day 4 year old class is for the child that will be four by August 31 st but has yet to show much of an interest in academics or does not enjoy sitting for extended periods of time. This class is similar to the Pre-K program with more attention given to developing fine/gross motor skills and lengthening attention spans. This class does more active learning as well as learning through play. The 4 year old class also gives you another year to decide on whether to place your child in Kindergarten or Pre-K the following year. This class takes several field trips during the year including the Pumpkin Patch, Richland Fire Station and Puddleduck’s Herb Farm.

This class will be more academic driven focusing on phonetics and math values. This class will also provide extended enrichment and exploration opportunities through science, geography, music, and literature units.
