Salem Lutheran Preschool

For more than 40 years, our preschool has prepared children for kindergarten in a fun, and 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 children for kindergarten. Our curriculum is updated annually and incorporates reading, art, music, and large motor play. Monthly tuition begins at $115 per child and varies based on length of program.
