Bethlehem

Preschool

Our Philosophy

Bethlehem Lutheran Preschool believes God made each child unique and special, therefore, individuality is encouraged.  Children learn best through play and by developmentally appropriate activities with a wide variety of materials.  At Bethlehem we focus on the development of the whole child.  We believe that when we enroll a child, their entire family becomes a part of our extended preschool family.  Our school provides a warm and loving environment where children can develop to their fullest potential physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually and spiritually.  We believe that social confidence and a sense of independence is an integral part of academic success. 

 

Our Staff

All staff members are DPI licensed or State Certified Early Childhood Teachers.  All teachers are required to participate in continuing education courses on a yearly basis.  Our staff is dedicated to the Christian faith and possesses nurturing qualities and a true love of children.  Our staff is dedicated to ensuring the best experience for our preschoolers and their families.

Family Values: 

Our staff and teaching philosophies reflect those common to families with young children.  We believe the whole family becomes a part of our school, not just the child. 

Communication:

At Bethlehem Preschool we value communication with families.  We feel that getting to know your family unit and circumstances allows us to better meet the needs of each individual child.

Individualized Learning: 

All children learn in unique ways and at their own pace.  Our small classes allow our teachers to help set and meet individual learning targets.

Family Events:

Our school year is full of whole family events that include a Christmas program, Grandparent’s Luncheon, and year end family program.
