Thank you for choosing Messiah Lutheran Preschool for your child(ren)'s early educational experience. We are honored to serve your children during these formative years and look forward to partnering with you in supporting their growth in the months/years to come.
New Parent Orientation—Thursday, Sept. 7 at 7:00p
There is a 30-minute optional New Parent Orientation scheduled in Messiah's fellowship hall. The orientation will cover general program procedures. Please make arrangements for childcare.
Classroom Visits, September 5-9
All classes (including the Tots) will be hosting a "Classroom Visit" the week of September 5-9. An adult must stay with your child for this hour-long visit. Your child's teacher will be informing you directly of the specific date/time of this visit. Please keep an eye on your junk mail folder just in case their email ends up there instead of your inbox.

Should you know of anyone looking for a preschool program, we do still have availability in some of our classes. We also take names on wait lists for classes that are full.

Thank you, and enjoy the rest of your summer!
