King of Glory Preschool is a community service
ministry of King of Glory Lutheran Church, Newbury Park,
California. Founded in 1991, our beautiful facility was
constructed specifically to house the preschool. In this
child-centered, nurturing environment, children develop
physical, social, emotional, cognitive, spiritual, and
creative skills, providing them with a positive attitude
about life and learning.
Philosophy and Goals
At King of Glory we value children for who they are,
not for what they know or what they can do. We
demonstrate this by listening to them, recognizing their
efforts, and providing opportunities for each child to
At King of Glory we provide a climate in which
children can explore their world at their own pace.
Through "hands-on" activity centers and experiences
children are encouraged to discover answers, properties,
relationships, skills, and concepts for themselves.
We strive to build a "language rich" environment to
ensure that young children gain the verbal skills
necessary to communicate feelings, thoughts, and needs.
We promote creative adventure with language by exposing
our students to the best of early childhood literature
and encouraging their own imaginative use of language.
We foster the development of strong, healthy bodies
by providing nutritious snacks, promoting good health
habits, and designing our playground and classroom areas
to stimulate both fine and gross motor development.
At King of Glory we are dedicated to nurturing in
each child the knowledge that she/he is special to God,
created, loved and uniquely gifted by him.
We look forward to
having you as part of our King of Glory Family!
