Our Program

Our Philosophy
Vinland Lutheran Preschool is a place where children are nurtured and friendships are fostered within a community of grace.  We believe each child is wonderfully made and loved by God. Children learn best when playing and interacting with the people and environment surrounding them.  We provide a safe, healthy place for children to learn, grow and explore. 

Our Curriculum
Our approach uses an interactive, thematic curriculum that nurtures the whole child.  Our focus is on learning by hands-on experience.  Themes and projects are developed around the children’s interests and designed in accordance with children’s developmental levels.  We offer a rich, playful, academic approach that prepares students for success in kindergarten and a lifetime of learning.

Our Program
VLP offers a 36 week half day preschool program, serving children 2 years through 5 years old. We have 3 types of classes: A morning 3-day per week class for 3-5 year olds; an afternoon 4-day per week class for 3-5 year olds, and a one day per week Friday class for 2-3 year olds. Each class is led by 2 teachers
