Emanuel provides families with more than just an education. Our programs strengthen the family and help to reinforce the character attributes that parents feel are most important to the future of their children.

Our focus is to provide an educational and child development program tailored to the specific needs and desires of the parents. Our faculty has designed unique ways to inspire an increased level of Christian development in our students of all faiths with today’s educational atmosphere. Using our proven methods to increase the joy of learning, all are encouraged to choose positive attitudes and to be there to support each other in a cheerful learning environment.

We are so much more than a school! We provide a foundation necessary for successful, joyful living.

Mission Statement

Emanuel Preschool is committed to working with the parent community to provide a nurturing environment to foster the growth of children intellectually, spiritually, physically and socially.

Our History

The Emanuel Lutheran Church was organized and erected in 1912 by the Rev. Hermann Zoller, who served until 1932. Then came the Rev. Carl Gernannt until 1956 and the Rev. William Hinlicky, who organized the school in 1957.

At that time, the school was opened to 17 students in kindergarten and first grade. About 10 years later, grades second through sixth were added along with a half day nursery programs for 3 and 4-year-olds.   Then, in 1993, the congregation approved building a new early childhood center and by 1997 a full-day preschool program was added.  In 2006 seventh and eighth grades were added.  Unfortunately, our day school closed for grades Kindergarten through 8th grade in 2019.  

In 2020 Emanuel Lutheran Preschool Early Education Center was licensed as a “day care” center and is now servicing children eighteen months through five years.

Spiritual Life

Partnering together with parents is the key that enables us to instill in our students the attributes that are essential for them to become impactful citizens in a global community. Being a Christ-centered school, we seek to cultivate an atmosphere of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These attributes are intertwined in all that we do here at Emanuel Lutheran School as a way of creating a foundation for a life of faith, joy and successful living.

Every Wednesday, children will attend a Chapel service lead by Pastor Steve which are held in our Church.  The children pray before every meal and will learn Christian songs.  Weekly bible lessons will be taught.
