“And He took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.”

 GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

 

The mission statement of Epiphany Lutheran Church is to help people grow into a living relationship with Jesus and His Church through worship and fellowship; to understand God’s purpose for their life through Bible study and prayer; and to go forth as Jesus’ Ambassadors to care for and share His Good News with all people.

 

Epiphany Lutheran Church Mother’s Day Out is licensed by the state and was established to help meet the needs of young families in the Pearland community.  It is our calling and privilege to provide a program where children are cared for in a loving and secure environment, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through everyday activities. Children attend chapel in the sanctuary on a weekly basis where they experience worship and singing.

 

We are committed to the belief that “children learn by doing.”  In partnership with parents, we provide well balanced, age appropriate activities, including the introduction of colors, numbers, shapes and the alphabet.  Social skills are a very important part of being a preschool child.  Classroom activities focus on the importance of sharing, listening and cooperative play.

Our Pre-K 4 classes focus on preparing the children for Kindergarten in a variety of fun ways. This includes encouraging independence, expanding fine and gross motor skills, reading readiness, and math/science concepts.  Circle time is used to introduce new concepts, including the calendar, show and tell, student of the week, etc.  Creativity is promoted through the use of centers, art and music.

JANUARY NEWSLETTER 2015

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! Welcome Back!! It has been a very nice and restful holiday season and we are now ready to get back into the routine of things.  With January here, it’s “back to school” time once again.  We hope your children are ready for fun times here at Epiphany with their good friends and teachers.

 January will be a relaxing month for us.  Your children will get reacquainted with their friends and teachers and have lots of free playtime!   One of our favorite days of the year will be Pajama Day on Thursday and Friday, January 15 & 16!  Dress your children in their favorite pajamas for this fun day and remember to send them in their tennis shoes.  Activities will include popcorn, movies and story time!

Class pictures will be taken by Higgins photography on Wednesday and Thursday, January 21 & 22.  These will be available for you to purchase.

 Thursday and Friday, January 29 & 30 will be Team Spirit Days in support of the Superbowl!  We encourage your child to wear their favorite team shirt.

  Please make sure your monthly tuition is paid in full by the third week of

  the  month.

 

A copy of the monthly newsletter is always available on the Mother’s Day Out bulletin board between rooms 3 and 5 in the main building, as well as online at our website at epiphanypearland.org/mdo. These newsletters are sent home with your child at the beginning of every month, and include any important dates and activities for that month.  Please make sure that you receive your copy and keep it in a handy place to refer to during the month.

 

Thank you also to everyone who participated in the MDO Sunday on December 7th.  It was a HUGE success! We appreciate all of the parents who brought their children to sing praises to our Savior. Special thanks to Kendra Bremer for teaching the children our special songs!
