What makes us different?

Large indoor play space   Fun and laughter are heard each morning as children ride assorted tricycles, jump rope and play with balls. When the weather is favorable, we head outside to our fenced-in playground!

Music and Spanish lessons   Our curriculum is supplemented each week with lessons taught by specialists.   All children have the opportunity to sing in front of an audience (parents, family and church members) twice during the school year.

Low-cost tuition  Our rates are comparable to, or lower than other area preschools. 

Upgraded equipment  We have new tables and chairs, a reading nook and many new toys to keep our students engaged and safe while in our care.

Little Esko Lutheran Preschool is a licensed preschool program that is committed to preparing your child
for success in school and life.  

We have successfully taught  strong school-readiness skills with a faith-based emphasis to children ages 3-5 for almost 20 years.  

We use Creative Curriculum, a nationally-recognized, research-based program that focuses each month on a new theme.   We also use a Bible curriculum that introduces children to many Old and New Testament people and their stories.  Download our newsletter to see what we're currently learning!

Hands-on activities and art projects are integrated into our curriculum.  We meet the individual needs of each child to help prepare him/her for kindergarten and experience God's unconditional love.

We have revised our 3-year old class registration requirements!  Children must be 3 years old by
September 30 to enroll in the 2-day class.
All children must be potty-trained.

Here's what parents are saying about Little Esko Lutheran Preschool....

“It’s not the same ABCs everyday.  My son loves trying to figure things out; he thought it was great fun when they worked with pulleys. The kids also get to be helpers throughout the morning, which really keeps them engaged.”  April Thompson

“My wife and I are really happy we found LELP.   We feel LELP is a hidden gem; if more people knew about this program, the classroom would be filled to capacity."  Shane Jopke

“I am impressed with everything the kids are learning; my son talks about the Bible stories and God at home, it’s become part of his everyday life.    He loves school and always looks forward to class days.    For our family, LELP has been a wonderful experience."  Carrie Altrichter
