As your child enters First Lutheran Church Preschool, we want you to know that we share with you a desire that this experience will be a most successful and happy one. We know the importance of this year in your child’s life. To insure the maximum growth and development of your child, it is important that there be mutual understanding and trust at all times between home and school. Preschool begins this cooperative relationship by building upon and strengthening the many skills you have taught your child at home.

We offer sibling discounts, scholarships, and referral credits.
