Our philosophy is that preschool should give each child a chance to be a child and to gain self-esteem, confidence, independence and self-discipline at his/her individual pace.
Our goal is to provide an educationally stimulating, nurturing and safe environment where children will become aware of the world around them through playing, learning and growing ... spiritually, socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically.

Group size and staff
Our preschool is licensed to serve a maximum of 20 children per class with a staff to child ratio of 1:10. We require children be supervised at all times. Our staff meets or exceeds all State of Minnesota standards required for a preschool. Head teachers:
* are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Education & certified by the Minnesota Department of Human Services
* have special emphasis in pre-kindergarten or kindergarten endorsement
* have additional college credits in early childhood-related subjects
* have extensive early childhood-related experience
The preschool will accept children from three to five years of age who have not reached six years of age by September 1. The Preschool Director and State Licensor must approve any exception to this age criteria. The preschool does not have diaper-changing facilities; therefore, all students must be toilet trained before starting school.
The school is not equipped or staffed to serve the educationally or developmentally exceptional child. However, some provisions or modifications are feasible for children with 'special needs'. Check with the Preschool Director for eligibility.
St. Luke’s Christian Preschool admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and other school-administered programs.
