Pre-K & Kindergarten

The Beginning Years

Special attention is given to the youngest members of Immanuel Lutheran School where they learn the essentials required to prepare them for their elementary years. Children learn the basic skills including the alphabet, numbers and motor skills. They listen to stories told from the Bible, learn to color and sing, and are taught how to write their names. Socially, they interact with one another during playtime and learn the value of mutual respect.

Pre-K and kindergarten students are able to take part in the Big Friend/little friend program in which they are mentored by Immanuel Lutheran’s older students. They are introduced to the main elementary school building by taking frequent trips to the school’s gymnasium and library. By the time they reach the end of kindergarten they are ready and willing to transition to first grade.
