About Preschool

Our Story

For more than 45 years, our preschool has prepared children for kindergarten in a fun, loving, learning environment. We foster life-long learners while helping each child grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually.

We offer a half-day program that is designed to prepare the children for kindergarten. We
incorporate art projects, music, and large motor play into our daily schedule. Our program is Christian-based and our goal is to always provide a loving atmosphere for your children to learn and grow.

Salem Preschool Our Story

Our Philosophy

Salem Lutheran Preschool Philosphy

Our philosophy at Salem Lutheran Preschool is that each child is a unique gift from God with special abilities and talents. We try to foster these abilities and talents through play as well as academically getting them ready for kindergarten.

Playing alone can foster independence and self-confidence while playing with others can
develop social skills, teamwork, negotiation and sharing.

Play is the foundation to learning life skills for children which is instrumental in their development and success later in life.

In response to the recent Health Advisory issued by Peoria City/County Health Department describing rising levels of COVID cases and concerns, the planned outdoor worship service has been cancelled. Worship will still take place live at 6pm, but with worship leadership only. It will be recorded and available for viewing by 8am on Sunday, July 26.
This decision is not taken lightly but very seriously as we strive to follow health officials recommendations and cautions. We do this because we love one another and want what’s best for one another. In this time of pandemic, that means refraining from indoor as well as outdoor gatherings of larger sized groups.

The drive by farewell for Kristen will still take place on Sunday beginning at 10:30am as we will remain in our cars. Thank you for your cooperation.
