About Solid Rock

Objectives

The Solid Rock Preschool and Mother's Day Out is a ministry designed to meet mental, physical, spiritual, social, and emotional needs of preschoolers as an expression of Christ's love. We provide mothers a regular block of time, free from their preschooler, to meet personal and family needs.

  1. To enable every child to grow in understanding and love for themselves, their families, and others in their world.
  2. To help each child grow in awareness that God loves them and that Jesus is a special friend.
  3. To develop a child's problem-solving and communication skills through age-appropriate activities.
  4. To provide each child with opportunities to enjoy creative expression in music, art, and play.

To help us accomplish our objectives, the entire school meets on a daily basis for Chapel. During Chapel, we teach the following:

  1. The Pledge of Allegiance
  2. Patriotic Songs (God Bless America, America the Beautiful)
  3. Counting (in English, French and/or Spanish)
  4. Fun/Silly songs
  5. Bible Verses (for example; John 3:16, Ephesians 6:1)
  6. Bible Stories or a story with a moral or value

Your child will hear some of the following stories: Noah's Ark, How God created the World, Balaam and his donkey, the birth of Jesus, Daniel and the Lion's Den, etc. We will also teach concepts from the Bible that teach a moral or value, such as obeying your parents and why that is important, why it's not good to tell lies, or why it's important to not hit our friends. All of these types of concepts are important for preschoolers to learn, and will be included throughout the year.
