Our elementary program is designed to use the very best instructional approaches to ensure all children grow in their learning to acquire the foundational skills they need to thrive in their future adolescent and teen schooling years. We work collaboratively with families to foster relationships that help children establish their identity and purpose in the Biblical narrative, within a learning environment that emphasizes wholeness, wellness and belonging.
The LCS Elementary program is based on six building blocks that we integrate into our teaching that help children thrive in an God-centred, holistic learning environment.
Faith In Learning
- Teachers weave Biblical narrative into rich classroom instruction
- Experiences are created to further nurture the whole child
