Preschool

St. Peter’s Lutheran Preschool offers a safe, Christian environment for children to learn and grow. The preschool program offers an age appropriate curriculum with hands-on experiences that will help prepare children for their formal school experience. Areas of focus include self-help skills, social and emotional development, language, large and small motor skills, pre-reading, pre-math, art, music, science, and social studies. Field trips and special guests are part of the excitement throughout the year.  Classes are offered for children 2 to 5 years of age.

Christian education is an integral part of the curriculum. Our pastors lead chapel for the children twice a month in the sanctuary and Bible stories/Jesus time is part of our daily schedule for every class. Also, as part of our curriculum, St. Peter's Lutheran Preschool believes in the importance of music for our children. Research has shown that music at an early age helps with brain development. The children explore music using vocal play, singing, listening, keeping the beat, imaginative play, movement, and the exploration of rhythm instruments.

We are pleased to offer an ALL day option again this year, available for our 5 year old PreK class.  In addition to their morning session of preschool, these "LEAPSTERS" will eat lunch at the day school and join the kindergarten class for LEAP (Learning Enrichment and Achievement Program). The number of students accepted to the LEAP program is subject to first come, first served AND the number of children enrolled in Kindergarten.

The professional, dedicated staff includes a director, three teachers, and two teaching assistants. All of our teachers have bachelor’s degrees with over 50 years of combined teaching experience. They each have a special love for little ones. Staff members are required to have professional development each year along with training in CPR, first aid, and universal precautions.
