Scripture tells us parents are their children's primary spiritual nurturers. But, in this day of busy families and a need to nurture the parents as well as the children, the church is actively involved in the integral process through their system of early childhood and preschool programs. This capstone developed an evaluation checklist Lutheran childcare administrators and teachers can use when choosing curriculum to assure it is Christ-centered, integrates the teaching of faith concepts into all domains, uses developmentally appropriate methods for teaching and, has a strong component for partnering with and empowering parents to serve as their child's primary spiritual nurturers.
