School Notes

  • A typical day at Emmanuel Lutheran School consists of alternating teacher directed and student initiated activities.  This allows for appropriate development of academic, social and emotional skills.  Our curriculum is faith based.  Each of our grades: toddler through First Grade, study language and literacy, science, math, art, music, social studies, and a Bible focus through a common weekly theme.  The children also really enjoy their time playing outside on our fun playground and helping with our school vegetable garden.

Just started my 3 year old in this preschool. I looked at a few and just knew this was the one on the tour. He would panic every time I left him in a class at the YMCA or church before, but he loves preschool. There is so much to do there that he loves all the toys and activities. His classroom is large and just filled with so much to do! The playground is wonderful and he loves the shed filled with cars and bikes he can use. He's happy when I drop hi off and happy when I pick him up. They offer dance class and soccer during the school day! I just felt like they had to much to offer to entertain him. His teacher is so sweet too! The class is small and the kids seem great as well.

My daughter goes to this school and it is important to call this a school and not a daycare. NY child is constantly learning a daycare and growing. I cannot express how much we love this school.
