A Loving, Caring, and Nurturing Place to Grow and Learn

First Lutheran Church Preschool provides a Christian environment so children can experience a loving, caring and nurturing place to grow in God’s love while promoting the academic, spiritual, physical and social development of each child.


There will be some changes next year in the Preschool program.

3 & 4 year old preschool: The new hours will be Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday   8:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.  This decision was made by the preschool board based on the family surveys that said a change of hours would be helpful to parents who have children in the public school system.

The Pre-K program will be the biggest change. 

The Pre-K Program will run Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

The hours, days and fees will increase for this program. This is 17.5 hours of school vs. the 9 hours that we are currently doing.

Please let Mrs. Amanda or Kandy in the church office, know if you have any questions and we would be happy to answer them for you.  Thank you!
