The daycare provides free nutritious meals each day for the children. Breakfast, Lunch, and an afternoon snack are provided to the children. We offer a home-style menu with meals being planned around the seasons and holidays. Special Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas dinners are provided to help celebrate the holidays with the children. Immanuel Lutheran Preschool & Childcare participates in the Missouri Eat Smart Program. The Missouri Eat Smart Program was designed to reduce childhood obesity beginning at the preschool level. Many eating habits are formed at an early age and are set by the time a child starts school. As a participant in the Missouri Eat Smart Program, the daycare provides fresh fruits and vegetables, more whole grains, more fiber, less fat and less sugar. We also promote a healthier nutrition environment, such as eating family-style meals and role modeling by adults, who eat healthy snacks and healthy foods.
We here at Immanuel Lutheran focus on two different curriculums to teach each child. Our first curriculum is a Bible based curriculum in which your child will learn the exciting and important stories of the Bible. This curriculum will introduce your child to God's love for them. Our second curriculum is a Kindergarten readiness program. This program is designed to help prepare your child for the entrance into Kindergarten. This program starts at the age of 2 beginning with basic concepts and continues all the way through Pre-K learning more in depth skills to ready them for Kindergarten. Once your child has finished Pre-K, they will get the opportunity to participate in a Pre-K graduation.
We will soon be starting the Schnucks eScrip Community Card Program. We will be participating in an exciting fundraising opportunity with Schnucks. By obtaining an EScrip Community card at your local Schnucks or registering your debit/credit card, we will earn a percent of each purchase you make at Schnucks. More details will be coming soon!!! Keep your eyes open!
