Christ Lutheran Day School’s curriculum philosophy is based upon the following principles:
- Developmentally appropriate practices as established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
- A focus on the whole child – to include development in the areas of literacy, sensory organization, motor activity, social-emotional development, and approach to learning.
- A belief that children develop through a developmental continuum, rather than accomplishing a particular skill set all at once.
Christ Lutheran Day School has created a curriculum that looks at each child’s individual needs and goals to help scaffold him/her to his/her fullest learning potential.
