St. Paul’s Lutheran Preschool

Starting July 17, 2018 and going through the end of October, St. Paul’s Lutheran Preschool is participating in the new Rutter’s Rewards Schools Program.  Please click on the following link to find out how you can help our PreSchool get new toys to go with our new classrooms just by filling your gas tank or shopping at Rutter’s.  By participating in this program twice a year, we have the opportunity to receive $500 from Rutter’s to help get much needed new toys.  Click here…Rutter’s Rewards Schools!

During the 2017/2018 school year, Preschool as well as other members of St. Paul’s had challenges with all of the renovations going on in the building.  We are happy to say that all of Preschool Rooms have moved to new spaces and are ready for the beginning of Fall 2018 classes.  We are “Building Faith for Future Generations.”

Shown below are pictures of the new classrooms:

St. Paul’s Lutheran Preschool was established in 1964 as a kindergarten.  When kindergarten became part of public school education, the ministry shifted to focus on early childhood development in the form of a preschool.

We offer classes for 2, 3, and 4 year old’s.  Children must be the appropriate age by August 31, 2018.  Opportunities range from two days per week for 2 year old’s, to four days per week for 4 year old’s.  Additionally, a student can have an extended day by signing up for PM Pals.  Members of St. Paul’s receive a discount as do families who have two or more children enrolled.

Our staff is committed and excited about a new year working with the children and Pastor Reep will have Bible stories each week and have songs to teach the children.

Every year in December we receive a gift that keeps on giving.  We receive a distribution payment for early childhood education from St. Paul’s investment in the York County Community Foundation.  This fund enhances the ministry of our preschool in many ways:

Field Trips

Afternoon Enrichment at PM Pals

Books

Toys for the Gym and Playground

Educational Supplies

Through the endowment underwriting the types of things mentioned above, we are able to keep our tuition costs affordable for our families.

We continue to discover the connections between early childhood development and life long learning. As we do so, we take time to reflect upon our program that has been building and growing for over 50 years. We are blessed to have such a dedicated and caring staff. We are blessed too in that we are able to minister in the name of Christ Jesus to the children. Each week the children in the 3 and 4 year old classes participate in chapel services. These times of prayer, praise and scripture reading become an important time of spiritual formation for the children. For those children who are being raised in a Christian family, we provide reinforcement and support for our faith tradition. For those children who do not have any religious background, we provide an arena for them to encounter Christ Jesus through the reading of scripture, songs and prayer.   Christian education should always be a priority in our life together.

The preschool provides a vibrant addition to the congregation’s ministry in York.
