School Philosophy & Mission
Bethel Preschool is a developmentally-based kindergarten preparatory school that has a distinctive Christian spirituality. Our school was established in 1951 by Bethel Lutheran Church to serve the congregation and as an outreach into our local community.
We recognize that education is a life-long process of formal and informal experiences within the home, school, and church. Bethel seeks to collaborate with parents and children to fully develop each child’s potential in a loving and nurturing environment. We believe that maximum learning occurs when home and school work together to mutually support and reinforce education and values.
Quality education occurs when a professional staff is filled with dynamic, well-qualified, loving, relational teachers that maintain appropriate credentials and certifications in their field. The staff at Bethel lead their classes and the school in a spirit of love and discipline, while striving to set a Christ-like example.
We believe that through the school’s mission and philosophy, the community is enhanced and served, and the family is strengthened.
