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.

What Your Child Will Experience at St. Michael’s

  • Creative Learning:  Arts and crafts, science center, author-of-the-month, reading nooks, singing and dancing, writing journals, sensory tables, and much more.
  • Safe, Loving Environment: Spacious, secure, naturally lit classroom; State of MN licensure; app-based parent communication; caring and experienced teachers; and family involvement opportunities.
  • Faith Focus: Daily Bible stories, chapel times, praise songs, and an environment grounded in Christian values. We aim to make sure your children are learning about the most important thing: the love of Jesus.
  • Active Play: Dramatic play, gym time, outdoor playground, annual bike week, field trips, and more.
  • Kindergarten Readiness: Proven, purposeful, age-appropriate curriculum with bi-annual assessments and parent-teacher conferences.

“Our family has had a great experience with St. Michael’s Preschool! Our kids have truly blossomed there as they’ve gotten used to being away from home and gained confidence with their peers. The teachers are passionate and knowledgeable, and the environment is so loving. We look forward to sending our youngest in the fall!”

 We have been very blessed to have our 8 children attend St. Michael’s Pre-K. It has prepared all of them well for kindergarten socially and academically, but above all, the teachers made the difference! They have really become like a family to us, encouraging and loving our kids, and sharing their faith with them. It has truly been a gift for our family!
