Gethsemane Lutheran Preschool is a Christ-centered, play-based preschool. We focus on the whole child. Each class has individual curriculum that will teach developmentally appropriate activities. This includes social, emotional, academic and religious principles.
We offer learning opportunities for children from 3 months to 4 years old. The school has a Christian-based curriculum but accepts students from all backgrounds.
Our normal school day begins at 9 a.m. and goes until 2 p.m.
Extended day hours are available from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Our teachers are trained in child development, first aid, and CPR. They make the children their first priority. We know it is hard to leave your little ones and want to assure you our door is always open. Your children are a blessing and we are so glad we are able to serve them during the day!
The Gethsemane Preschool endeavors to meet the needs of the whole child. All aspects of each child’s development are considered of equal importance. These areas of growth include spiritual, social, intellectual, physical and emotional. Each student is given the opportunity to learn and do what is appropriate for his/her age, interest and level of maturity.
The teaching staff of Gethsemane Preschool is committed to providing learning environments that are age-appropriate. This approach allows individual students to grow through active exploration and investigation, based on sensory stimulation and hands-on manipulatives used in learning centers. This active learning process allows each child’s skills to develop to his or her fullest potential. These early years lay a quality foundation for each child’s future educational success. Our educational process is committed to leading each child to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
The mission of Gethsemane Preschool shall be to provide an atmosphere in which the Gospel of Jesus Christ is promoted and to implement a program of quality Christian education encouraging development in every area of each child’s life: spiritual, academic, social and physical.
