Mission and Purpose
At CIC Weekday Preschool our mission is to provide a Christian-based environment that is safe, nurturing, accepting and respectful of all individuals. The preschool exists to promote the physical, intellectual, social/emotional and spiritual needs of young children in our community, in order that each child may become the person that God fully created them to be. This will be accomplished by providing learning and developmental experiences consistent with Christian principles of Community in Christ Lutheran Church based on the authority of the Bible with decisions aligned with the Preschool's core values of love, integrity and compassion.
We believe that children learn best through play and developmentally appropriate activities. We believe that children learn by doing. We believe that children learn through interactions with caring adults who serve as role models. We believe that children learn through communication with others and develop important skills needed to live in a diverse world.
Being mindful of your children’s spiritual health is also an important part of our mission. We affirm God’s presence each day in some manner-often in the form of blessings, prayers, a Bible story or song. Once weekly the children attend Chapel services with our Pastor and Christian Music Director in the main sanctuary. Chapel visits are positive, upbeat, and child-friendly opportunities to learn about God and His amazing love. The teachers reinforce the Chapel time via activities in the classroom throughout the week.
The goals in all our preschool classes reflect developmentally appropriate practices and follow the Wee Learn Curriculum. The Wee Learn Curriculum is designed to meet the needs of the total child. The curriculum provides specific activities around which the classroom teacher can build a positive experience for every child. We add to the curriculum by using enrichment activities in order to provide excitement and curiosity for the students. We offer a balance of “self-directed” activities, children choose to do on their own, and “teacher directed” activities, which can be done with children individually or in small groups. Physical development includes activities to assist children in small and large muscle development using age appropriate materials and equipment. Creative activities such as art, blocks, dramatic play, and music help to develop the senses, the imagination, and the skills that are a large part of reading readiness.

The preschool's observation of holidays, teacher workdays and inclement weather closings, mirrors that of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Public Schools. Additionally, The preschool will be closed on Election Day in order to maintain the best security for the children since our church is used as a polling center.
