We Explore & Discover

The purpose of Community Preschool is to provide an early childhood social and educational experience for 3 to 5 year old children in a Christian atmosphere. Our emphasis is on the abilities and interests of each child. Our goals are to develop a love of learning, give children a sense of self-confidence in the classroom, provide many opportunities to express themselves and follow directions, and prepare them for their next step in the world of education.

Our school days include experiences in math, reading, music, science exploration and creative art.

At Community Preschool we realize how important a child’s first school experience is. We provide a warm, accepting Christian environment with activities in which each child can be successful. We emphasize developing social skills, Kindergarten readiness, and having fun as we learn!


Our NEW Preschool location is on the west end of First Lutheran church.

First Lutheran Church is now located right off of S. McKay Avenue on 18th Ave. E.


Our classes are currently full for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please contact Director Melisa Schueler at 320-762-2196 to be placed on a waiting list, or to check for current availability as this can change throughout the school year. 






Insurance coverage on the children will be more than $100,000/$300,000 for general liability.  The preschool will not discriminate in admissions or demissions on the basis of race, sex, religion, creed, color, national origin, or source of payment.
