I would highly recommend Messiah Lutheran Preschool and Kindergarten! They have the best teachers around! The entire staff is so kind and dedicated to teaching! They offer many class options as well as enrichment programs and before and aftercare. The kids are exposed to STEM, music, and they have a wonderful nature playground! My daughters have spent 3 years at Messiah and are very well equipped for elementary school! I can’t say enough good things about Messiah! - Erica

Messiah is a wonderful school! They use a play based approach to learning and the kids get plenty of outdoor time at their amazing nature park all seasons of the year. The teachers really care about giving the kids a fun, loving, and enriching environment - you see it and feel it every time you enter the building. We love Messiah as much as the kids do! - Christina


Both of my kids attended Messiah for preschool and kindergarten. My husband and I LOVE the school!!! The teachers and staff are so friendly and kind. They really get to know all the families that attend which makes me feel great leaving my little one in their care. The play base learning is a great way to get kids excited about school and prepare them for first grade. My son is in first grade now and is thriving, we owe most of that to Messiah.- Krystal


I went to Messiah 30 years ago and knew that there was no other school I would want to send my boys to for preschool and kindergarten. The hands on learning, the amazing staff, and the amount of fun my children have at this school has helped my kids develop not only academically but also socially and build them into kind little humans. I wish I could send them to Messiah forever. - Megan


The staff is amazing! Loving & nurturing! The curriculum is challenging & exciting! So thankful my kids began their academic career here!!!" - Marta


"This is my daughter’s second year at Messiah. The teachers are outstanding and very nurturing! My daughter loves it there and has grown so much academically and socially. She also goes to the Before and After care program and loves it! The teachers in the program are so welcoming and loving to all the children! We love Messiah and will be sending our second daughter there as soon as she is old enough." - Victoria

"The administration and teachers are fabulous! What a wonderful Christ centered environment with age appropriate educational activities! Thank you Messiah Lutheran!" - Karin


"Amazing school with an amazing staff! Both of my children have attended over the last three years and we could not be happier. They have learned so much through the wonderful curriculum. The nature playground is beautiful and the events they put on throughout the year are also so much fun!" -Lindsey


"Thank you for hosting such a fun family night! All three of my kids had such a fantastic time and were sad when it was over. Each room was more exciting then the last! We ended the evening in the "move your bones" gathering area. I think they could have stayed all night throwing spiders and going through the spider tunnel! We know this was a big undertaking to plan, prepare, execute and clean up. The love and the dedication of the staff is clearly evident on a daily basis. We are grateful for such a wonderful start to our daughter's education."- The Clinton Family


"The creativity and dedication of the MLPK staff never ceases to amaze me. Thank you for instilling a love of learning in my daughter! I never want to miss a MLPK event. They never disappoint." -Kerry

 "We have looked forward to and enjoyed book club sooo much. My son was so sad that this was the last one and wondered if there was a summer book club! We love MLPK, thanks for all that you do!!! Nailed it once again!" -Kristin


"We wanted to share how much we appreciate all you’ve done to help our child transition to a new school. We have seen so much love and caring for her through the patience you show her, her excitement in seeing her teachers and friends each day, the wonderful little drawings you make for her, and the fun experiences you provide for the kids!"- Tammy

"I can't say enough about MLPK! The teachers and staff are exceptional and go above and beyond to ensure each child is happy, engaged, and learning. They nurture minds and spirit and set the stage for the love of school and learning. My children were beyond prepared for kindergarten and beyond thanks to our MLPK family!!" – Jaime

"What a great year! So thankful for the wonderful teachers and outstanding director!" - Katie

"Caring teachers, happy kids, solid curriculum, welcoming community!" - Allison

"My daughter came home super excited to tell me that she is an author and came up with her own story. It was so precious!! Thank you for all that you do, it is making a big impact on her and us as her parents." - Mrs. Carrillo

"The day we signed up our girls for Messiah was a day that changed our lives for the better.  The education that is given is phenomenal and it shows in the work that comes home.  It's so comforting to drop my girls off with smiles on their faces and teachers greeting them at the door.  MLPK is more like a family with the love and care that is given and the staff always goes the extra mile.  We are blessed to send our girls to such a wonderful school."  - The Markko Family
