Preschool Purpose
Founded in 1959 to provide a Christian education for young children and outreach to their families, the school is an extension of the educational ministry of Bethany Lutheran Church, a Missouri Synod congregation. The school includes children of the congregation, other congregations, and children whose families have no church affiliation.

Preschool Curriculum
The preschool curriculum is designed to be an enriching learning experience. Thematic units are integrated into language arts, social studies, science, math, art, music and religion activities. Children are encouraged to be active participants in the learning process through exploration and discovery. The curriculum is enhanced with field trips and visits from community members such as fire fighters, medical personnel, story tellers, etc.

Preschool Philosophy
Program planning and practices reflect that children are gifts from a loving God and learning is what children do. It is an active process. We believe that:
• Each child is a child of God with unique patterns and timing of growth.
• Children's play is fundamental to their development.
• Children learn from each other.
• Children's natural curiosity leads to many learning activities.
• Children need an environment based on trust and structured freedom to be self-reliant and to use their own initiative.

Bethany Preschool Offers:
• well-trained early-childhood staff
• low student-teacher ratios
• developmentally appropriate curriculum in a nurturing Christian atmosphere
• ten month preschool year
