The preschool years are an important time in your child’s life. We offer your child and you a positive environment which promotes social, intellectual, physical and spiritual growth. Our program provides your child a fun learning environment through which he/she can develop a variety of skills. Our emphases are in the areas of social interaction, fine and gross motor skills and early readiness skills.
The St. Mark Preschool staff is very excited about working with your children. The year will be a wonderful experience for your child and St. Mark Lutheran Church.

St. Mark Lutheran Church is a fellowship committed to inviting all people for the sake of Jesus, forging a faith grounded in real life, and going into the world to make a difference in Jesus’ name.
St. Mark Lutheran Church Preschool provides an affordable, traditional preschool curriculum with an emphasis on Christian values. We believe each child is a unique individual. We encourage positive development in social/emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual needs.
