Peace Lutheran Preschool reaches out to the children of Peace and the community to share God’s love with young children. We provide a loving, stimulating Christian environment that encourages growth in all areas of development: spiritual, social-emotional, physical, and intellectual. We enroll students from all denominations and welcome all children.


Preschool

Philosophy

Children learn by doing and through play. They are provided many varied activities that promote readiness skills which prepare for future learning.

Curriculum areas include art, math, language, social studies, science, music, physical education, and religion. Our preschool has a Christian emphasis. Children will sense a loving God and begin to have an understanding of concepts such as sharing, caring, loving, and forgiving.
