We chose Peace because of its small class size, family-like atmosphere & since we are parishioners at Peace our daughter felt very comfortable having her first preschool experience at the church we attend.

As a stay at home mom, I would highly recommend Peace Preschool for any child’s first school experience.

Lori & Ryan L

We couldn’t have asked for a better preschool and 4K program for our daughter. The play based curriculum at Peace Lutheran Preschool has allowed her to grow her social and academic skills all while having fun. The teachers are knowledgeable, supportive and nurturing.

'They put the child first. Everything Peace does is based on what is best for children. We have been so pleased and feel so blessed that our children have had the opportunity to be a part of something so amazing!'

Miranda M

What is Peace Preschool's greatest strength? 'Allowing the children to learn organically by engaging them through their natural interests and age appropriate play. Play is the work of the child and Peace is excellent at cultivating, nurturing and developing my child's passion for learning and hunger to discover the world'.

Above all – I know Peace was the right choice for 4K because when I pick my daughter up, not only is she always full of happy smiles and ready to tell me what she did – she wants to go back every day.

I love my teachers and I love my friends I met in class.

Thank you staff at Peace Lutheran Preschool for giving my kids such a wonderful start to school. They love going to preschool and I know it is because of the warm and inviting environment you have created which has made an easy transition for them to school. Kellie has been a fantastic teacher and you can tell she truly loves what she does…. And the kids (and the kids in turn love her)! So thanks for all you do! You truly make a difference!

Annie B

I love the personal attention that my daughter receives at Peace Lutheran. The teachers are caring and compassionate and truly love what they do. I cannot believe the social and academic strides my daughter has made in the last year and a half – the play based curriculum is exactly what preschool should be all about.

Carrie D

Peace Lutheran is an extension of our family. I chose Peace because I could spend an entire day at the school and never tire of the positive atmosphere. The staff works at the preschool because they love kids and this is evident in their interactions on a day to day basis. It’s a play based curriculum that incorporates good old fashioned values and teaching of the Bible to our kids. I am honored to call Peace Preschool our home away from home.

Heather L

Peace Lutheran Preschool is a place where my daughter feels at home, where the teachers and staff clearly care a lot about both the child’s educational and social emotional needs.

Gina D.

I have so many nice things to say about Peace! I think the teachers in all of the classrooms are the best. They are seasoned, caring, professional, and well respected by parents as well as others in the community. I feel really lucky to have my child attending a school with teachers who truly care about her. The classrooms are inviting and comfortable. My child loves going to school every day.

Cortney K

The staff at Peace Lutheran Preschool/4K are outstanding! They are caring, understanding and very concerned about children. Peace is a great local community place for my children to grow and learn. We love the accepting atmosphere at Peace Lutheran. Very welcoming! A++
