Preschool Introduction

 

Conveniently located on the South end of San Clemente, Our Savior’s Lutheran Preschool is a place where your child matters! Simply walking on campus, you will find that Our Savior’s is a close-knit family that understands and values exceptional education which equips children to be members of our community while stimulating the foundation of Christian values and reflection.

Our Savior’s Lutheran Preschool is committed to excellence. This is achieved through creative and energizing curriculum, highly qualified and inspirational staff, low student/teacher ratio, and a passion to provide a quality educational experience, helping to spark a passion for learning that will last a lifetime!

 

Your family will receive constant communication into your child’s growth, supported by assessments and progress reports along with parent teacher conferences. This partnership facilitates extension of the child’s day into the home and bridges the learning opportunities both at school and home.

Preschool Curriculum

 

 

 
Our Savior’s Lutheran Preschool provides a unique opportunity for children to be engaged in a pre-academic environment with a child centered approach. Our Preschool team designs their curriculum and lesson plans starting with the California Preschool Learning Foundations, customizing instruction based on classroom personality and the child’s individualized goals and needs. These developmentally appropriate practices and classroom experiences intentionally foster exposure to the world around the child and capture the many moments of curiosity. Throughout the day our teachers guide student learning individually and in groups to explain, educate, and empower the children, encouraging them to ask questions and explore their learning environment.

Our preschool team understands that every child develops at their own pace while being committed to continuous growth and excellence in all levels of early childhood education.  While being focused on long term educational goals, our most important goal is to foster and encourage a love of learning.

  • Social-Emotional Development
