About the Provider

Description: Light of the World Academy is a ministry of Shalom Lutheran Church. We believe that each child is a gift to us, created and loved by God. We believe that learning is life long. Light of the World Academy provides a Christ-centered learning environment in which both children and parents feel welcome. We believe that education involves the whole person -- emotionally, socially, intellectually, spiritually and physically.

We believe in the uniqueness, worth and dignity of the individual. We believe that positive self-image is basic to all learning. Our academic preschool and kindergarten programs are based on the philosophies of Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori classroom is a prepared environment in which all children learn through an individualized approach. Children are provided with an atmosphere in which they will learn from their peers. They develop self-discipline and learn respect for each other and their environment. The children become self-motivated and self-directed and very independent as they work at their own individual academic level.

No child is stifled and no child is pushed to move on before he or she is ready. Under the guidance of a carefully trained teacher, the students are challenged at their own individual levels. Light of the World Academy is equipped with a full range of specialized materials that encourage manipulations, questions, discovery and knowledge about the world. We stress the process of learning rather than the end result. Children learn not to fear mistakes, instead viewing them as an opportunity for learning.

We believe that our focus in meeting the child's needs, helping him gain an inner discipline, spiritual knowledge and respect for rights of others is preparing a child for life. At Light of the World Academy, your child will be introduced to sensorial and practical life activities, math, reading, art, music, geography, computers, foreign language, science and spiritual education. And most importantly, a love of learning that will last a lifetime.
