Community Preschool

Community Preschool of First Lutheran Church would like to invite you to visit and join our preschool fun. We have been located in First Lutheran Church since 1979.

We have classes that are offered Monday – Friday. This allows you to choose a class on a Monday/Wednesday schedule or a Tuesday/Thursday schedule for all preschool ages. If you have more that one child that will be attending different classes we will work with you to make sure that they are here at the same time. We also provide before and after school care.

Community Preschool strives to provide an early childhood social and educational experience in a Christian Environment. Our goal is to enhance each child’s self concept by stimulating his or her cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Children are encouraged to experiment and explore the world around them.

At Community Preschool we realize how important a child’s first school experience is. We provide a warm, accepting Christian environment with activities in which each child can be successful. We emphasize developing social skills, Kindergarten readiness and having fun as we learn!  Our school days include experiences in math, reading, music, science exploration and creative art.
