Peli Family Center is a not-for-profit ministry of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, providing a childcare program of the highest quality deigned to meet the needs of concerned working parents. At Peli, each child is guided to develop his/her potential in every aspect of life within the shelter and nurturing relationship of Christian love. We operate our Center valuing each child as an individual who must be allowed to grow and learn at his/her own rate and to develop a healthy self-image. Peli will assist each child to grow spiritually, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.
Childcare and preschool frequently represents the child’s first separation from home. Part of this experience is learning that other adults can be helpful and loving. Children have much social learning to do. This is accomplished bet in an atmosphere of love and concern for the needs of each child. Programs are planned to encourage and develop individual strengths and abilities, while helping your child to understand the value of cooperation and interaction with others This is achieved through working, learning, playing, and sharing with other children as well as adults.
Play is the child’s work. We take advantage of this fact and add many facets of early childhood teaching techniques to build a happy and strong foundation. By balancing active time with quiet time, teacher directed activities with child selected ones, and structure learning with fun-time. Peli will encourage the child’s natural curiosity and eagerness to learn about the Lord’s creation.
