A DAY AT GALILEE PRESCHOOL

Galilee Preschool begins the day with gathering the children together for circle time.  Our time together focuses on a bible story, verse/song, interactive discussions about the letter, color, shape and number of the day as well as music and dance.

The Children will participate in teacher guided and student guided activities.  Each day, while guided by the teacher and assistant, the children will complete one or more projects relating to a topic discussed during circle time.  The children will also have the opportunity to visit developmental centers of their choice which coincide with current skills and themes.  The goal of our centers is to reinforce skills and encourage interactive, small group play.

We conclude our day with a snack provided by Galilee Preschool and gross motor time to play either outside or in the narthex.

Throughout the day, the teachers are modeling appropriate behaviors and encouraging children to play, talk and cooperate in a way which shows kindness and Christ-like behavior.


Weekly Extras and Community Connections

Chapel and Music - Once a week, the children attend chapel lead by Director of Discipleship, Emily Phoenix.  The children will also have music time which centers around our theme for the month.

Jump Bunch - Galilee Preschool has partnered with a local Physical Education company called "Jump Bunch". Our children experience gross motor and fine motor fun through the monthly visits of the Jump Bunch.

Anne Arundel County Library - Literacy is a valued lesson at Galilee. To increase literacy awareness and provide additional interactive learning, AA Count Library visits Galilee four (4) times a year.

TESTIMONIES FROM GPS FAMILIES


"We felt at home and that GLP was a great place to begin the foundation of our children's education. Based on skill building techniques and rooted in the Bible, GLP is the right choice for our family" - The Paxton Family


"As a parent, I entrust my greatest blessing the staff at Galilee 2 full days a week and I am grateful for the love care and guidance he receives. The teachers and director look at each child as an individual with their own strengths and needs. The school couldn't be more clean and to me that says the teachers care about my son. My son has been blessed with awesome teachers who understand his needs as a 3 year old and handles him with grace. My child has learned so much and continues to share with me the great activities that happen at school. Thank you Galilee for an incredible early childhood curriculum that engages and teaches at all steps of the day. Jennifer and Kim continue to do amazing works of the heart with all children. I have and will continue to praise and recommend Galilee." - The Meyer Family
