Abiding Word Lutheran Early Childhood Education exists to teach little children about Jesus and his world, leading them to grow in mind, body, and soul.
Abiding Word will offer a well-rounded program of Early Childhood Education. God’s Word will be taught through weekly Bible stories and chapel services. God-pleasing character will be motivated by the Gospel and practiced daily through interactions with Christian teachers and students. We will provide a complete curriculum that offers balance between structured lessons and directed play. Early Childhood Education at Abiding Word will prepare children well for the future challenges of elementary school.
Facilities and Class Size
Our building is secured with keypad entry and we have two outdoor playgrounds available. We have six classrooms each furnished with child-focused centers for learning and play.
We pride ourselves in low teacher to child ratios and enroll children throughout the year on a space-available basis. We follow the most stringent of regulations for teacher-to-student ratios based on the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Only in the event of an emergency will we deviate from these ratios, never exceeding the State of Texas’ Minimum Standard Regulations.
Weekly Chapel and Worship Participation
Weekly chapel services are held on Wednesdays in the church sanctuary. This is an opportunity for the children, faculty, and parents to gather together for worship, singing, and prayer. Chapel offerings are used to support mission projects in the United States and around the world. You are under no obligation to send an offering with your child, but may do so as your heart desires (2 Corinthians 9:7). AWECE students are given the opportunity to sing in our Sunday morning church services three times each year. We devote much instruction time to these songs in music practice, so attendance is highly encouraged. We love it when parents can join us in worship! We also offer a Thanksgiving program each year in the church sanctuary.
All children have a music class once a week and sing each day in their classrooms. We love having fun with music and praising our Savior. Once a week the children participate in an age-appropriate P.E. class and play outside on their playground daily. We also offer soccer from Soccer Shots.
