The Giving Tree Preschool

We are a Christian, half-day school and a ministry of Lutheran Church of Our Saviour.

Operating as usual


February Update:
Our themes this month are “Dental Health” and “Our Many Feelings.” The children will learn about the proper care of their teeth 🦷 and the importance of eating healthy foods.🍎 They will also explore the many feelings we all experience: happy,😄 sad,🥺 mad,😡 excitement,🤩 and fear.😧 The Bible story is Jesus Blesses the Children—even though they may be small, children are important and loved.❤️ We will also celebrate Valentine’s Day with card exchanging and parties.💌

This morning at Chapel, Abbie told us the story of The Good Samaritan. We talked about the many ways we can be a good neighbor and friend!
