About the Provider

Description: The Church of the Savior Nursery School has been part of the ministry of the Church of the Savior Lutheran Congregation since 1971. The school is established in obedience to and as and instrument of the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ, who said:"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded of you." Matthew 28:18-19 We use a creative approach, dealing in different media. Each child works at his or her own level; therefore products will not be the same for every child. The process is more important than the product.
