Preschool and Early Childhood Development
We appreciate your interest in our Preschool program here at Emmanuel Lutheran School. This program is designed for your child to have excellent care while equipping them in the knowledge of the Lord at an early age. We hope our program will also provide a smooth transition for your child into their upcoming classroom.
With core Christian values, our teachers offer love and care for each child in a very personal way. One of the advantages to our small classroom size is that no child is overlooked or left behind. Our teachers assist each student with developmentally appropriate skills and provide a safe learning environment. Emmanuel Lutheran offers various programs for children from infant care through Pre-K.
- Infants: Extended Care Only
- Toddlers: Extended Care Only
- Two Year Old - Five Year Old: Half Day / Full Day / Extended Day
*Please contact the Early Childhood Center Director for 2 or 3 day options at (828) 281-8182 ext. 133.
