St. Luke Preschool

Our Mission

The mission of St. Luke Preschool is to provide a loving, safe and secure Christian environment. Our goal is for children to learn, grow, and develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually through age appropriate activities and skills. We strive to instruct, guide, and nurture each child that he/she may develop into the special person that God desires.


About Us

St. Luke United Methodist Preschool is dedicated to the education of young children. We offer a developmentally appropriate Christian curriculum that promotes learning through child-centered, hands-on activities. We are licensed by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) that governs Christian schools and requires that we meet the state and local requirements for licensing in addition to meeting ACSI standards which includes providing a Christian curriculum.

It is important to us that the children in our preschool learn through their play. In our experience, children who know they will have the opportunity to "get messy" will come joyfully to our program. Therefore, we offer a variety of activities including arts & crafts, story-time, music, games, and much more that give children hands-on experience with a variety of materials. We also have Chapel and computer time each week in addition to our curriculum activities.


On Monday and Tuesday of each week, preschoolers go to the St. Luke Sanctuary for Chapel. This is a time for children to learn about God's love by hearing Bible stories presented in a way that is meaningful to a young child. It is also a time to celebrate God's love through singing!

Special Events

Throughout the school year we host many special events starting the very first day of school with Boo Hoo Breakfast. The parents enjoy a light breakfast while they Boo Hoo on their child's first day at school...Kleenex provided! We also eat cookies with Santa, hunt for Easter eggs, visit the pumpkin patch and even march in our annual Mardi Gras parade.

Music & Movement

Music & Movement is a time for preschoolers to hear different types of music: slow and fast, loud and soft, traditional, spiritual and classical. Not only do children listen, move, sign, and play games to music, they also experience the wonderful sounds of different instruments.


Totsercise is a fun fitness program that each age group gets to participate in. The children stretch, dance, workout and play games while working on balance, flexibility, and gross motor skills. We incorporate the weekly theme, listening skills and other educational aspects into this exciting and upbeat class. Totsercise is the perfect way to introduce children to exercising at a young age.

Computer Lab

Computers are one of the most fascinating aspects of modern life. Our 3- and 4-year-old classes have the opportunity to use our computer lab set up just for them. The children are able to each play an educational game. The use of computers promotes fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and a positive attitude toward technology.
