Reaching out with Christ’s love to serve and grow through early childhood education.       

Our Philosophy


The purpose of St. Paul Lutheran Preschool is to reach out with Christ's love to serve children and their families.


With this in mind, we further define our purpose as educating children and families through the love and teaching of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We are committed to Christian Education by providing all the essentials to those we reach in order to train the whole child. We do this by identifying the spiritual, social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs with the use of age appropriate learning and interactive play.


The philosophy is based on God's promise given to us in Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it."

About our Preschool...

Preschool classes can be a child's first step into the world of education.

At St. Paul Early Childhood Ministry we learn:

  • How to interact with others

  • Conflict management

  • Beginning literacy

  • Number sense

  • Fine motor skills

  • And so much more!

Our program uses the Indiana District Early Childhood Curriculum. The standards found in this curriculum lines up with the Indiana State Standards and includes religious instruction from the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
