    As an extension of Abiding Love Lutheran Church, our preschool exists to share God’s love and saving plan with young children and their families, while providing spiritual and educational nurturing within a loving, creative and structured environment.
  • Children are admitted without regard to race, national origin or religious background. Our curriculum is designed to support all aspects of a child’s development, and emphasizes spiritual, academic, social, emotional and physical growth in a safe, stable environment.
    • Learning & Fun

      Children experience both group and individual activities that promote hands-on and interactive learning.

    • Christian Education

      Combining loving families, loving teachers and the love of God, we provide a rich educational and spiritual environment for each child.

    • Friendly Place

      We strive to encourage the development of the Christian virtues of love, friendship, forgiveness, self-discipline, responsibility, honesty, courage, commitment and faith.

    • Children Safety

      Our staff has completed the required forty-five hours of state education, and all have CPR and first aid training.

  • Bible Curriculum

    Our Bible instruction permeates every part of our curriculum, and it is our hope that it fills your family home as well. The base of our daily Bible Time includes:

    • One in Christ Curriculum
    • Use of beginner’s Bible and story Bible
    • Songs of praise
    • Prayers
    • Sharing a family interaction page, sent home weekly for in-home Bible lesson review
  • Chapel

    Chapel with Pastor Gensmer is every Wednesday at 8:30am at church. Every child and teacher will walk up and get to experience a church setting while Pastor retells the Bible lesson and connects it to the children’s every day life. They learn to listen, pray and to praise God. This is a wonderful experience for the children. We encourage parents to attend chapel to show the importance of learning and knowing their Savior.
