NEXT GENERATION PRESCHOOL
Director: Lisa Waits
Purpose of Next Generation Preschool
Next Generation Preschool is an outreach ministry of Ascension Church of Cleburne, TX to families of the church and the community. The program enables the parents time each week to work, or take time for themselves, or take care of personal business. Parents can feel secure in the knowledge that their children will be receiving proper care and Christian guidance.
This ministry provides opportunities for Preschool children to enjoy happy learning experiences at church and to expand the child's social environment and development.
Next Generation’s objectives in teaching children are to enable children to:
Grow in understanding and love for God, themselves, their families, and others in their world
Grow in the awareness that God loves them and that Jesus is a special friend
Grow in the ability to think, solve problems, and develop language and social skills
Enjoy creative expression in music, art, and play
The purpose of the Next Generation Preschool is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children to grow physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually through developmentally appropriate activities in order to develop a positive Christian self-image and prepare them for the transition into Kindergarten.
