Dear RLC Families,

Resurrection Lutheran Preschool (RLP) is blessed in many ways - continuous support and prayers from RLC’s congregation, families that choose RLP as the stepping stone of their child’s education journey in a Christian environment, and a staff dedicated to teaching, caring, and loving each child that crosses our paths. We are thankful.

With a heavy heart, it saddened us to inform our RLP families the extremely difficult choice that was made, in consultation with the RLP Board - to ‘pause’ our 2020-21 (September 2020-May 2021) preschool year. This means the classrooms and halls of RLP will not be filled with the voices and giggles of children we were all so anxiously awaiting to welcome back this fall.

The Board believes this is the best decision for these reasons:

  • first and foremost, the safety and well-being of everyone - our children, our families, and our staff
  • secondly, the financial responsibility to our RLP families (current and future) and to the Resurrection Lutheran community

During these unprecedented times, families have also had challenging choices to make. When we finished our preschool year in March, 78 children were enrolled at RLP to start the 2020-21 preschool year. Come July, most families decided to withdrawal their children. This left us with 17 children remaining enrolled at RLP. Additionally, our staff was also diminished by half due to staying at home with their own children. As a result, it was determined not to be financially feasible for RLP to operate with such a small number of children.

The positive aspects of a period of ‘pause’ for RLP allows us TIME.

  • TIME: A blessing we are thankful for and we will use wisely during these unprecedented times.
  • TIME: We will commit to staying connected with our RLP families.
  • TIME: We will ‘pause,’ review, and renew our program.
  • TIME: RLP intends to return in 2021-22 with a renewed and restored program. A preschool program that has been offered in this community since 1984 and will continue to grow stronger.
  • TIME: We will prepare for enrollment to start in January for the 2021-22 preschool year (September 2021-May 2022).
  • TIME: We will plan and hopefully be able to offer Spring 2021 and/or Summer 2021 Camps, as we monitor the pandemic.

We are exceedingly grateful for the expressions of support shared by the RLP families and their patience over these past weeks and months. We are truly blessed with our remarkable RLP family community!

Our Mission

Children in our Preschool program will be provided with opportunities and experiences that will enrich, expand, and develop their ever-increasing accumulation of knowledge in a loving Christian atmosphere.

Our Objectives

  • To build a foundation of understanding that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior -- through Chapel and a living-learning environment.
  • To offer opportunities and activities to help each child develop a healthy self-concept, which includes accepting his/her abilities and God-given talents; thus, fulfilling each child’s individual needs (spiritual, emotional, psychological, intellectual, and physical).
  • To foster the development of positive social skills through participation in small and large group activities.
  • To broaden each child’s aptitude for future learning.
  • To provide a loving environment, enabling each child to trust his/her teachers and become more secure away from home.

Our Curriculum

RLP's ‘learning through play’ philosophy integrates Jesus’ teachings woven throughout the daily schedule. A developmentally appropriate and integrated curriculum is provided. Child-centered, hands-on experiences are offered in an enjoyable learning environment, along with a mix of academic opportunities. Activities are planned to offer a blend of active and passive segments. Gross and fine motor, cognitive, language, emotional, spiritual, and social components are included within the context of the unit being explored.
