Our Program

Goals for your child in our Christian environment:
  • Learn to respect self and others.
  • Learn to care about others.
  • Gain confidence in one’s ability to learn and grow through Jesus’ love.
  • Learn that because Jesus first loved us, we love each other.
  • Learn through Bible stories, through developmentally appropriate curriculum and play.
  • Grow and develop socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and academically.

What does Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum mean?

It is a program that provides children with a wide variety of opportunities to learn skills, develop, knowledge, and gain self-confidence through interactions with their environment and other people.  This type of curriculum creates an environment through which children learn to comprehend the world in which they live.  This comprehension comes through hands-on experiential learning and discovering the answers to questions such as:

  • How does this work?
  • What makes this go?
  • How many is 6 or 2 or 25?
  • What do you think will happen next?
Children learn to work and play cooperatively with others.

Mission Statement
We at Lutheran Child Development Center (LCDC) are dedicated to provide premier care and Christian education from highly trained educators. Through developmentally appropriate practices we provide a faith based curriculum for children within an exceptionally high quality preschool setting. We want every child to experience success at the best preschool in Charlotte County.
Lutheran Child Development Center has been established to provide a loving, nurturing, and stimulating environment where young children and their families can experience the love of Jesus on a daily basis. The Bible teaches us in Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” We believe, therefore, that the spiritual development of young children is one of the most important reasons for our existence. Children will learn about God’s loved for them and how to show God’s love to others.

At LCDC we believe that children learn best through play. LCDC creates a learning environment in every aspect of a child’s day. LCDC provides developmentally appropriate experiences that foster growth of the children as they work and play individually and within groups.

Each child is unique and has been blessed with different talents and abilities by God. Our goal is to provide the children with a variety of experiences that will develop them in all areas, including spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social and creative, as well as to enhance their physical growth. We believe that children acquire knowledge about the world they live in through a variety of activities and experiences including discovery, exploration, and hands-on activities.
