Classrooms

Teacher with Children

LNBC is blessed with wonderful, dedicated and talented teachers.  During the day your children will experience small and large group time, show and tell, center time, art, outdoor play, stories and individual attention.  We are very fortunate to have the gymnasium upstairs for “outdoor play” when the weather doesn’t allow us to go outside. Teachers cover moral and spiritual topics as well as developmental skills necessary for the next age/grade level. We encourage “child-centered” activities that help children gain confidence and strengthen pre-writing skills.

Ministry

Friends

Families from our Preschool have volunteered to minister to residents at Olde Knox Commons, a senior living community located on Ranson Road.  Our Senior Care Pastor, Hal Brown, has a Bible Study for the residents every-other Friday.  The children sing songs for them and also make holiday decorations.  We are very excited to have this opportunity to share God’s love with the staff and residents there. We also support Mission Possible (a mission day emphasis held each spring) by volunteering at The Harvest Center, a ministry in Charlotte that serves homeless children and their families.

Music

Children Playing Music

We have a dynamic music program.  Each age group attends a music class twice each week. The class is designed to allow preschoolers to experience music through movement and individual expression.  Some activities include: playing instruments, interpretive dance, dramatic play, “feet” painting to classical music and fun with bubbles. Children share in Bible songs, classical and children’s favorites, instructional songs along with holiday music and songs that correspond to the classroom lesson themes.

Special Events

Boy and Girl with Dog

Each month our children participate in a school wide special event. These programs are brought to LNBC so that our children will enjoy a “hands-on” experience in a comfortable environment. Parents are welcome to attend our events so that they may enjoy them with their children.

In the past, some of the events have included:

  • Corky the Clown
  • Dance Davidson
  • Fire Safety
  • Irish Dancers
  • Petting Zoo
  • Sprout ‘n Shout
  • Story Tellers
