Little Saints’ Preschool

Little_1Welcome to Little Saints!

The Little Saints’ Preschool is a program of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church.  It is open to people of all faiths or of no faith. We do not teach Lutheran doctrine, but we do practice and teach Christian beliefs about the love of God and our responsibility to care for each other and the world that God gave to us.

Our children will have:

  • Prayer at snack time
  • Chapel time
  • Daily lessons
  • Arts and crafts
  • Music
  • Indoor and outdoor playtime
  • Classroom visitors (firefighters, dentist, police and other community professionals)

Certified teachers and qualified helpers

Our Goals:

We believe that God has called us to minister to bodies and souls, and so our preschool program seeks to enable the development of the whole child, including:

Spiritually:

  • Growing in Jesus love
  • Learning to pray
  • Practicing a Christian way of life

Emotionally:

  • A healthy self-image
  • Appropriate emotional expression

Socially:

  • Sharing with others
  • Listening to others
  • Listening to instructions

Physically:

  • Small motor skills

Intellectually:

  • Language skills
  • Colors and shapes
  • Letters and numbers
  • Language Arts
  • Science
  • Social Studies

We offer half day programs for 2, 3 and 4-year olds through morning and afternoon sessions. Our 2-year-old separation classes meet for 2-hours each day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays with options for 2, 3 or 4-day classes. Our 3-year- old classes meet for 3 hours each day Monday through Friday with options for 3, 4 or 5-day sessions. Our 4-year- old classes meet for 3 hours each day Monday through Friday with options for 4 or 5-day sessions.

Our “Together We Grow” classes meet for 1 ½ hours each day and are designed for children ages 18 months to 32 months who are not quite ready for a separation program. A parent or caregiver stays with the child for these sessions.

During the summer, we offer a 5-week camp for 3, 4 and 5-year olds. These sessions last for 2½ hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
