Lambs of Grace Preschool provides a nurturing environment of trust built on God’s holy word and daily creates developmentally appropriate opportunities for preschoolers in the local community to grow intellectually, socially, physically, and spiritually.
Lambs of Grace Preschool provides a family atmosphere where each child learns that he/she is a unique and precious individual: a special person for whom Jesus lived, died, and rose again.
It is our purpose to support your child’s spiritual, social, intellectual, emotional, and physical growth in a child-centered environment of warmth, friendliness, and genuine love. We believe that every child should be treated with respect and provided with a safe and secure nurturing environment where children are free to explore independently with guidance from their teachers.
- The children will receive preschool instruction in alphabet and number recognition, reading readiness, math, science, language, music, art, and socialization skills. In addition, children will develop fine muscle skills while exploring and experimenting with different mediums, such as painting, drawing, writing, tracing, coloring, cutting, completing puzzles, and multiple other age-appropriate activities.
- The main of learning is through play. Children make their own choices throughout the day which develops independence, self-discipline, and self-esteem.
- We use a gospel-centered curriculum developed from My First Bible Storybook published by Concordia Publishing House. Through chronologically teaching stories from the Bible, children learn about God’s people, promises, and the Good News of salvation for everyone given to us through Jesus Christ. Bible stories, prayers, songs, and attending an age-appropriate chapel service are part of the weekly curriculum. Our curriculum promotes a child’s social and emotional development by focusing on how Jesus teaches us to relate and act towards our parents, fellow students, and the world around us.
In 2004, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of New Mexico. Since then, I have taught Kindergarten and First Grade with Albuquerque Public Schools, Second Grade for a local Charter School and, most recently, have taught many years here at Lambs of Grace preschool. By far, my greatest joy has been teaching preschoolers and helping to foster in them a lifetime love of learning.
