Pre-Kindergarten

2016-2017 School Theme: From Start to Finish...God With Us

School Verse: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."  - Rev. 22:13


Welcome to St. John's Lutheran Pre-kindergarten! Classes are designed for children who are four years old by Sept. 1st. We meet Monday-Friday from 8:50-11:30. Child care is available if your child needs extended care. We would love to tell you a little about what we have to offer. Be sure to check out the links below to see a daily schedule, weekly activities, and the monthly newsletter.

Our goal is to encourage your child's curiosity, language skills, emotional development, creativity, confidence and critical thinking in a playful environment. Most important is the message that he/she is a child of God and his/her first independent step into learning will occur in a loving Christ-Centered classroom.

Pre-Kindergarten Curriculum

We utilize The DML Early Childhood Express curriculum. This holistic, child-centered program nurtures each child by offering carefully selected and carefully sequenced learning experiences. It provides a variety of materials and ideas to foster the social-emotional, intellectual, and physical development of children. At the same time, it nurtures the natural curiosity and sense of self that can serve as the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

I'm very excited to be able to work with this new program as well as incorporating many years of resources and learning center activities to provide the best possible education for your child. Not only will your child be given an up to date educational experience, he or she has something that the public schools can not offer; a Christ Centered Education where the Word of God is heard each and every day.

About The Teacher:

I am a 1980 graduate from the University of Wisconsin Stout with a degree in early Childhood Education. I furthered my education through Concordia University by graduating in 2013 obtaining a Masters in Education with an emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction.  Colloquy certification was completed through CUEnet and Concordia University Wisconsin. This year marks the beginning of my 27th year in teaching. I have had the wonderful opportunity to serve St. John's Lutheran School and you as parents for what will be my 23rd year. I truly enjoy the challenges of teaching both prekindergarten and kindergarten and look forward to working in partnership with you and your child. 

Favorite Bible Verse:  I have had God's help to this very day.  Acts 26:22

Mission Statement:  My mission as an educator is to actively engage my students in Christ centered learning experiences that promote a joy of discovery, love of learning, and the confidence to achieve their fullest potential.   I will incorporate a variety of resources and teaching strategies that address the individual needs and learning styles of my students.  Throughout our busy week the children will grow spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially.
