Philosophy & Curriculum 



At Ascension Lutheran Preschool, we are passionate about providing a loving Christian, developmental atmosphere where children recognize themselves as unique individuals created and loved by God. As a child-centered school, we believe that the process is as important as the product. Children work hard at play—through questioning, sharing, speaking, listening, dancing, singing, discoveries, experiments, and hands-on activities. Our children learn at their own pace, through play that is geared toward their developmental stage.
Our policies are rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Teachers uphold the understanding of and belief in the importance of Law (consequence for misbehavior) and Gospel (forgiveness for the repentant). This helps the children develop healthy relationships and patterns of adjustment—learning and growing in a warm, loving, responsive environment with experienced early childhood educators who provide attentive, nurturing, individualized, quality care.


Ascension Lutheran Preschool is a play based developmental program, which implements age-
appropriate curriculums to provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences. Teachers develop lessons from the curriculum based on the developmental needs of the class.
