Preschool is the beginning years of education about the Orthodox faith. The curriculum this year is focused mainly on the foundations that our children need in their faith. It is our goal to teach them how to properly make and identify the sign of the cross, properly pick out the icon of Jesus, Receive communion correctly, light a candle, kiss the icon in church and recite a prayer of thanks to Jesus. The curriculum also includes things such as being grateful, kind and helping others. The curriculum also focuses on the main idea that each child is special and loved by God.
Our goal for kindergarten children is to experience joy; not only through family and school activities, but also through worship and church life. We have chosen aspects of worship and stories from scriptures that are examples of joy centered on Christ. The kindergarten child learns to celebrate the joy of God’s love and begins to feel a sense of trust and well-being in his emerging relationship with God. We will be using Happy with God, the kindergarten textbook of the “Living Our Orthodox Faith” we want to show the children that God’s love is our greatest source of happiness.
The theme for 2018-2019 program is is based on Luke 18:10
