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.

Activities

It is important to us that the children in our preschool learn through their play. Therefore, we offer a variety of activities that give the children hands on experiences, such as crafts, stories, games, music, computers, and special events.

Chapel

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 that allow you to be a part of your child's learning center such as; Boohoo Breakfast, donuts with Dad, Mom's Day Tea, Preschool Sunday, Trunk-or-treat, Easter Egg hunt, Thanksgiving Program, and much more!

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.

In class technology

During center time in the 3 and 4 yr. old classrooms, the children will have an opportunity to explore on-line educational programs on a kids-edition kindle fires. Each tablet is child-safe.

Music, Movement & Sensory                                                                          

Music & Movement sensory 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.
