Grace Lutheran Preschool

Grace Lutheran Preschool was established in 1966 to serve children from 2-6 years of age. Our primary goal is to provide our students with a Christian education within a safe, healthy and enriching environment that allows them to develop at their own pace.


Our Educational Philosophy

Children deserve an intimate environment where they are not pressured to compete for attention. We encourage children to freely explore materials within safely established limits. We strive to maintain an environment where children can develop spiritually, mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally.

Both group and individual activities are provided for children. We also explore the community in which we live by inviting community helpers to our school. Through our program, children become better prepared to face the challenges to be met early in elementary school.

Parents are encouraged to drop by and visit during any hours of operation to observe and participate with our activities. We believe that parents are a child’s first and most important teachers.

The adults that children will encounter during their time at Grace Lutheran Preschool are warm and caring. They are qualified and experienced. They will model appropriate voice and language as well as behavior.
