Lions Room


Train up a child in the way he should go; And when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

Welcome to the Loyal Lions room!

We are happy to be starting the 2016/2017 school year with you! We are excited to tell your child about Jesus and all the wonderful teaching of the Bible! We also prepare our class for their future educational career by learning to say, recognize and even write our ABC’s and 123’s. We will also learn patterns, placement words, phonics and Spanish this year! In the Lions room we play plenty of games, sing lots of songs and have a ton of fun! We are confident that this curriculum will help each child learn the fundamentals, gain confidence and make new friends. Most of all, we want your child to know that they are loved by Jesus Christ!

Looking forward to a wonderful year, Teachers,
-Jennie & Marla

  • Please wear socks.
  • Please make sure to label ALL of your child’s items even your child’s non-disposable lunch containers items

Additional Considerations

Separation Anxiety

A few children may have some separation anxiety, this is very normal especially in the first weeks of MDO. We find the best way to calm a child is for mom or dad to say a quick goodbye and let your child know that you will be back after lunch to pick them up. Most children cry for mom and dad’s benefit and calm down minutes after your departure. Be assured that if your child cannot be calmed, we will notify you.
