Classes at Redeemer Lutheran Preschool are age-appropriate, and class sizes can vary by age group. Each class benefits from an experienced teacher, a trained assistant and a developmentally appropriate, comprehensive classroom. Each class also has a consistent team, and children are encouraged to make choices throughout the day to become curious and confident.
Our academic year starts in September and ends in May, and your child’s age on September 30 determines his or her age group.
Morning sessions operate 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Afternoon sessions operate 12 to 3:00 p.m.

With each class, we emphasize the life skills children need.
- Attachment – getting along with an adult for nurturing and safety
- Belonging – as a member of a group, especially to the family
- Self-Regulation – managing emotions
- Collaboration – working with others, problem solving and conflict resolution
- Contribution – becoming eager to learn and to help others
- Adaptability – learning how rules can change with the situation
