Christ Lutheran Children’s Center is committed to offering a high quality program to all of the children in our care. While your child is enrolled at Christ Lutheran Children’s Center, we will help them to mature intellectually, physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. We will work with your child on developing skills, attitudes, and habits which will help set a firm foundation for experiences in future years.
The creative self covers the areas of self-expression through the use of art materials and
music and creativity as expressed in play and applied in thought.
The physical self includes not only large and fine muscle development, but also handling
routines, since such things as eating, resting, and toileting contribute to physical comfort and well-being.
The emotional self considers ways to increase and sustain mental health, to use
Conscious Discipline to foster self-control, to cope with aggression and to foster a positive self-image.
The social self entails ways to build social concern and awareness, learning to enjoy work
and learning to value the cultures and differing abilities of other people.
The cognitive self (intellectual) is considered in terms of language and the development of
specific learning abilities such as basic skills and concepts.
The spiritual self discovers that he or she is loved by God and increases awareness
of God’s world and his or her place in it.
The language self includes basic language acquisition that aligns with our program
philosophy and considers both family and community perspectives.
At Christ Lutheran Children’s Center, we use the creative curriculum. With the creative curriculum, the teachers offer many opportunities for the children to play, explore, and enhance their learning.
The curriculum is based on individual and group interests and development. All lessons are aligned with the Ohio Early Learning and Development Standards. The curriculum helps teachers offer developmentally appropriate opportunities that support active learning and promote children’s progress in all developmental areas.
Creative curriculum also helps our teachers to be their most effective, while still honoring their creativity and respecting their critical role in making learning exciting and relevant for every child.
