Preschool

St. Matthew Lutheran Preschool

A creative and engaging Early Childhood experience built on the foundation of Jesus!

At St. Matthew Lutheran Preschool, we believe that young minds are extremely impressionable and able to learn great things.  That is why we place a strong value on our Preschool program, where we can begin to lay the educational building blocks of a child's emotional, cognitive, physical, and spiritual experiences and initiate the path to becoming a life long learner and follower of Jesus.

Mission

Our Mission Statement:  Together in Christ: learning, growing, serving

At St. Matthew Lutheran Preschool, we believe that young minds are extremely impressionable and able to learn great things.  That is why we place a strong value on our Preschool program, where we can begin to lay the educational building blocks of a child's emotional, cognitive, physical, and spiritual experiences and initiate the path to becoming a lifelong learner and vibrant follower of Jesus.  This is such an exciting journey and we look forward to watching your child grow in significant ways!

Philosophy

Our preschool day is a mix of student led, play based, and teacher directed lessons and activities. We infuse movement throughout the day and take a child’s attention span into consideration as well.

The play based philosophy allows children the freedom to have fun while discovering their world and interests, which empowers the student to become a more self-aware, happy, confident, and independent individual with an appreciation for and love of learning as well as a love for Jesus. Learning through play and experiences promotes and enhances the development of creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking skills. The play based classroom incorporates different areas throughout such as blocks, house, science, art, writing, sensory, dramatic play, math, language/literacy, puppets, STEAM, and manipulative centers. Throughout the entire day, Jesus and His love is incorporated into all possible areas of learning.
