Preschool (3-4 year olds)

St. Michael’s is an exceptional, Christ-centered, award-winning preschool and ministry of St. Michael’s Lutheran Church that is open to families in the Twin Cities area. We invite you and your child to consider St. Michael’s as your next “home away from home!”


Our mission is to create a loving Christian environment in which the children can develop to their fullest potential:  including spiritual, physical, emotional, social and cognitive growth in their young lives.


Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it. -Proverbs 22:6

The objective of St. Michael’s Preschool is to provide each child a safe, loving and positive environment where faith is naturally integrated into the curriculum.

I have had 3 kids in St. Michael’s Lutheran Preschool and could not be happier with our experience there.  The teachers and staff are amazing, loving, and experienced.  The enrichment option for 4-year-olds proved to be a great transition to all day kindergarten for my kids.  I love that they teach the basic academic, social, and independent skills for kindergarten readiness, along with teaching about the love of Jesus.  Truly a wonderful place and I partly wish my kids could stay preschool aged forever!

All of our 3 boys have attended St. Michaels preschool. We absolutely have loved how much our children thrive at this school. They are so well loved, cared for, and encouraged! There are many options for just morning classes, adding lunch or staying for longer days. We have done many combinations depending on what our kids need and our schedules. The staff and teachers make class fun, and they learn so much at the same time. We love St. Michaels!
