March Update: Preschool

by Vickey Weeks on March 07, 2019

GOD MADE ME!!!

Our preschool vision is to begin to lay a foundation in our children of who God is and who we are in relation to Him. A great place to start is now, in the preschool years, with this simple but powerful truth—God made me!, We want to teach them  that we are all wonderfully made by God.

In week one when we talk about how we are wonderfully made by God. God made each and every one of us and no two of us are the same. We are each unique and special in our own way.

Week two, we will add that God made us in His image. Yep, that creativity, smartness, and the desire to help is all from God because He is creative, smart, and helpful too! God made us like Him, and that makes us wonderful!

Week three, we talk about how we are very important to God, not because of what we do but because of Who made us. We’ll unpack what the word important means while we learn that every individual is important to God. Why? Because He made us!

Week four, we will talk about what it looks like to respect ourselves. After all, something God made deserves a little respect. Respecting ourselves means taking care of our bodies. We need to eat healthy foods, brush our teeth, and get enough rest if we want to respect the bodies God gave us.

In week five, we will talk about what it looks like to respect others. God made all people, so all people deserve respect. For preschoolers, respecting others means using kind words, sharing, and playing together nicely. We can be kind to our friends, because God made them too.

Preschoolers need to learn now that they are wonderfully made by God, in His image. This makes them very important and motivates them to respect themselves and others.
