Philosophy

Founded in 1998, our early childhood classrooms exist to apply the Word of God, as revealed in Scripture, to the hearts and lives of these very small children. In most cases, our preschool will be your child's first experience with "school". It is our prayer that through our early childhood programs, Jesus will become your child's Best Friend. May Jesus stay that Best Friend through your child's life. We are here to direct your child to follow in Jesus' footsteps.

Redeemer Lutheran Preschool strives to maintain excellence in all of our programs. Our prayer is to remain a campus where we can serve others through the love of Jesus with a quality program. The Lord has blessed us with a beautiful campus, dedicated staff, and a quality program a step above the rest!

The word "child" brings a smile to my mind. I had a wonderful childhood growing up in a christian home with five siblings and attending Christian schools for my entire K-12 education! I loved school and loved my teachers! Learning was fun! I knew from the age of ten that I wanted to be a teacher! I also knew I wanted to be a mother! God blessed me with an opportunity to do both! While pursuing my teaching degree I met my husband Greg. We married in 1978 and had a family of three boys. I taught first grade for a few years until motherhood became my main focus. As my sons entered school full time, I went back into the classroom. This time in KINDERGARTEN! I found my passion...5 year olds! I have taught full day Kindergarten at Redeemer for over 25 years! And I have over twenty five "favorite" classes! Each year brings abundant joy and endless rewards as I see children discover that learning is fun! My goal is to teach children to love their Savior, love school and love to learn!
