PROGRAM

We are licensed by the MN Department of Human Services and accredited by the National Lutheran School accreditation. We are committed to partnering with parents in training and educating children in a Christian environment.



FACILITIES

We have a beautiful early childhood facility, which was constructed in 2013. We are blessed to be apart of St. John’s School. Our early childhood room is supplied with the highest-quality furnishings and educational material, including an interactive display. We have a large playground with an abundance of toys and equipment for students to use. We also have access to St. John’s School gymnasium for those cold, rainy days.



CLASSES

We offer classes for preschoolers (3 years old) and pre-kindergarteners (4 years old). Class assignments are based on the child’s age on September 1. Children must be potty trained to enroll in the preschool class. Each class has a teacher and, if enrollment allows, an aide.



TEACHERS

Our teachers are committed Christians with training in Early Childhood Education. All teachers and aides have successfully completed a Netstudy 2.0 background check by the MN DHS. Most importantly, our teachers have a love for children and a passion for teaching.



CURRICULUM

We provide a structured school day for our students. We utilize materials that focus on best practices and developmentally appropriate practices for children including One in Christ, Starfall, and other supplemental materials.
