Early Childhood Program
Our Savior Lutheran School Early Childhood program offers a Christian nurturing environment where your child can grow and learn. In these early years, we concentrate on developing the following areas: academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual, in each child. We believe that each child is a precious gift from God uniquely made by our Creator and in need of a Savior, Jesus. Our loving teachers are trained in early childhood development and understand how to serve their students in preparing them for the next level of development.

These early years are crucial in building the foundation for success in future school learning. The following are the curricula we use at OSL:
We use the Christian based A Beka curricula for learning the alphabet, phonics and handwriting. We also us A Beka for learning numbers and early math skills. This is a traditional, classical Christian approach to teaching early literacy in math and language. It is age appropriate with lots of interaction between the student and teacher. Along with the A Beka curricula, students will be exposed to favorite childhood classic stories, poems and nursery rhymes.
Character training in Christian values is also intentionally taught throughout the day. Through orderly classroom routines, use of manners, teacher examples, Bible story time and discipline, Christian values are taught, practiced and reinforced.
We use One in Christ from Concordia Publishing House as our religion curriculum. Our Bible stories are introduced in chapel and then retold in a variety of ways throughout the week along with Bible crafts to reinforce the Bible truths learned. Our Bible stories are chronological beginning with Creation, Old Testament stories, the birth of Christ, His ministry, death and resurrection and so stories of the Apostles.
The truth of Jesus Christ is always our focus in everything, and our teachers are committed to bringing that truth into all parts of the curriculum.
