Daily Objectives

Our goal is to provide your child with a happy and successful preschool experience, and it is our hope that your child will develop confidence, responsibility, cooperation, and more through our program at St. Paul's. Preschool students at St. Paul's will explore a variety of daily learning activities including: literacy and math, center time learning, Spanish counting and colors, daily theme lessons, music, finger plays, art activities, and religion.

Field Trips & Activities

Activities are planned for both individual and group interaction. Field trips and resource persons visiting the school are added to enrich your child's knowledge about the community. Creativity is encouraged through many art activities. Christian principles, social adjustment, language development, and coordination are given high priority.

Teaching Staff

St. Paul's offers fully certified early childhood education staff for every section of our preschool program. The preschool teaching staff at St. Paul's Lutheran School provides a safe and secure learning environment, as well as tools for learning with a balance of developmentally appropriate activities and materials. The educators are good role models who enjoy learning with the children and encourage freedom with responsibility, assessing and evaluating learning and curriculum. They value parents as partners in their child's education.
