Preschool & Pre-K

Welcome to Emmaus Lutheran Preschool. At Emmaus Lutheran Preschool your child will be encouraged in their spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional and physical growth. We strive to maintain a balance of child-initiated play with activities that are teacher-directed, to provide a well-rounded experience. We take a developmental approach to Preschool, where children learn through play. At our Preschool you will find hallways and classrooms filled with the sounds of happy, busy children actively involved in learning new things.
