Our Philosophy

Each child is unique and special in God’s eyes and in ours. Therefore, our approach is one of Christian love as we guide children to develop their full potential spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically.

Although our school is associated with Lutherans, all children are welcome. GSLCP welcomes students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin.
We provide a Christian environment where children and adults work cooperatively and individually to promote growth.

All activities encourage development of self-esteem and cooperation. Independence and creativity will always be encouraged. Activities include a broad range of experiences including language art, cognitive thinking, deductive reasoning, music, sensory fields, dramatic play, and physical development.

Our Curriculum

Our hope at GSLCP, is that each child has a successful experience and learns to truly enjoy school. Activities include Bible stories, singing, and stories. We also teach fundamental life skills.

We celebrate holidays at GSLCP with fun and interesting activities tied to the time of year and the occasion. Field trips offer special educational opportunities.

Each day is filled with events that encourage early learning skills including colors and shapes, counting, letters of the alphabet (including writing letters), comprehension, deductive reasoning and spatial orientation.

Crafts and arts help small hands develop fine motor skills, coordination, and organization while reinforcing and understanding of language skills.
