Preschool

ABout Us

Bethany Lutheran Preschool was established in 2005 as a ministry of Bethany Lutheran Church.   Our preschool presently provides care and programs for children age 18 months through 4 years old turning 5. Our preschool offers developmentally appropriate, theme-based curriculum with opportunity for learning, socializing, and playing. Children attend music class and chapel each week. 


We are a licensed child care facility through the Department of Family and Protective Services. All teachers receive 24 hours of training each year that is appropriate to the age of children in their classroom.


The school year begins in September and ends in May. 

We also offer an optional summer program, which begins in June and ends in August. 


Enrollment in our Preschool can occur throughout the year. Preschool hours are Monday through Thursday,
