TSL Preschool

Create. Investigate. Explore.

God has intricately created us and the amazing world we live in. Our children have been created by God and are blessings to their families and to us. We acknowledge that God has given parents the responsibility of raising and educating their children. At TSL Preschool, we aim to assist parents in that role by providing a quality education program filled with developmentally appropriate practices led by highly qualified staff.

Children’s minds develop in a way that hands-on activities and play help children grasp new concepts and internalize them. Children have thoughts and feelings that are important and at TSL Preschool, we create art in multiple mediums for children to express those very important thoughts and feelings. God also blesses our children with minds that are curious. We use our curious minds to investigate the world around us through small and large group settings while developing our social, emotional, math, reading, writing, and speech skills. God has also created a vast world that contains many experiences and perspectives for our children to explore. We explore these experiences and perspectives through hands-on learning in the realms of science and social studies. We invite you to join us as we create, investigate, and explore this school year.

Our 3K and 4K programs are now enrolling for the 2021-2022 school year. We offer 3K options of 1-5 days a week and 4K options for 3-5 days a week. We also offer child care options for our students from 6 am to 6p

Our Philosophy
Our Philosophy is three-fold:

  • Faith: We share the good news of Jesus, our Savior, with young children, their families, and others, through daily Bible study, songs, and related family activities. Faith is integrated into our daily actions. God loved us so much that he sent HIS SON to die for us and to do the impossible and rise again so that we may go to heaven too. Knowing God loves us so much, motivates us to share that love through all of our actions.
  • Social Skills: We teach young children that out of love for their Savior they will want to speak and act in a way that pleases Jesus. God not only made you, but every single one of us. We can thank God by sharing his love through our actions and developing strong social skills to carry us through our whole life. The staff at TSL preschool show love and guidance in Christian discipline provided in the entire learning environment.
  • Whole Child Education: We nurture the spiritual, social, emotional, physical and cognitive development of young children through a developmentally appropriate curriculum that is Christ-centered. This is done through hands-on activities as well as play and small and large group activities.

Bible, Social-Emotional, Large and Small Muscle, Language, Cognitive, Literacy, Math, The Arts, Science, Social Studies.

Many of these subjects are integrated together through the use of our main curriculum called Creative Curriculum which is aligned with the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards. We almost make use of  the SPARK curriculum for large motor and music development. We use ChristLight for our Bible time which includes weekly handouts for our families to use at home too!

Difference between 3K and 4K
4K: School readiness class for children who are 4 by September first of the school year. This class builds on the skills built in 3K to dive deeper into the academics needed for Kindergarten. Not only do we review number and letter recognition, we work with manipulating numbers and letters to develop our early math and reading skills.

3K: This program is intended for the introduction to the school setting. We build the basics and groundwork of turn taking, sharing, expressing our feelings, shapes, colors, numbers, and letters. This program helps students be prepared to work as a group and grow individually by exposure to new thoughts and ideas to help children develop knowledge about themself and the world around them.

We operate with the Trinity-St. Luke School Calendar. Our 3K and Preschool Program starts at 8 am and ends at 11:30 am. We offer the following child care options for our families:

Before School Care runs from 6:00 am to the beginning of the school day for all TSL families who need child care before the school day begins. Children may bring their own breakfast if they arrive before 7am.

Extended Care runs from 11:30 am to 3:00 pm (to 2:10 on Wednesdays) for TSL preschool families who need childcare for their students from the end of the preschool program to the end of the grade school day.

After School Care runs from 3pm to 6pm (from 2:10 on Wednesdays) for all TSL families who need child care after the end of the school day. Please make sure your child has a water bottle and a snack if participating in this program.
