Early Childhood Program


Eastside Lutheran's Preschool Program is now enrolling for the 2014-2015 school year!


Why  should I send my child to Eastside?

While there are dozens of compelling reasons, consider these four:  Family, Fun, Foundation, Faith.  

  • At Eastside, students are more than just students.  They are part of our family.  Our caring staff will be there during your child's struggles and to celebrate his/her success.  

  • We also believe preschool should be fun!  From creating Play Doh snowmen to silly pajama nights to reenacting epic Bible stories, we love to see students smile while learning.  

  • In addition, we believe preschool is the foundation for your child's future.  More than just ABC's, we help students take the first steps toward lasting friendships, honor roll, and lives spent helping others.  

  • Finally God's love is the center of all we do.  His unconditional love for us is the message of faith that we share and the model we follow as we learn how to treat one another.

We hope you will consider sending your child to our Christ-centered PreK3 and PreK4 programs.  We also offer the convenience of on-site childcare which is open from 7:00 am to 5:45 pm.  Classes fill quickly, so register today to reserve your spot.  If you have any questions or would like a tour, please call Alyssa Scharrer  at 608-244-3045.

Read What Others Have to Say About our Program:

Eastside Lutheran’s Preschool has been a very important part of our family’s life for the past four years. Our son (now a first grader) attended for two years and our daughter is currently in the 4K program. The teachers and staff are what makes Eastside’s Preschool so great. Mrs. Novotny is awesome! She is loving, patient, kind and has a great energy level! Mrs. Saidler has a great sense of humor and is always there to lend a helping hand to any child that may need it. The fact that God’s Word is taught on a daily basis at Eastside is what is most important to us however. Both of our children have gotten a great foundation in learning about their Savior from Eastside’s Preschool Program. We love Eastside and our children do too!

Eastside is a wonderful place for our kids to learn about the truly important things in life. That's important as children can make life changing decisions at a young age.

Eastside's' 3K/4K program is one of the best programs we have been privileged to be a part of. Not only do the kids have fun and enjoy coming to school everyday, but they are learning in a Christ centered environment . The staff is knowledgeable and amazing with the kids. They offer a variety of activities that the kids enjoy and also involve the family as well. The variety of program times makes it flexible for my child's most productive learning time. We wouldn't go any other place.

Having our daughter at Eastside Lutheran Preschool has been such blessing. We had a number of friends speak highly of this pre-school, and recommended it above all others in the area. True to its reputation, the staff has gone above and beyond to make our daughter and our entire family feel welcome. Our daughter’s teacher is highly organized, perpetually cheerful and always engaging. We feel confident that Eastside Lutheran has given our daughter a firm foundation in education and faith and are excited to enroll her younger brother there this fall.

I truly enjoy sending my son to the 3 year old preschool program at Eastside. I know that he looks forward to going to school to see his friends and teachers, participate in the wide variety of hands-on learning activities, and most importantly, learn about his Savior, Jesus. The atmosphere of the classroom, learning materials, and excellent teacher communication make me very appreciative of the early education my son is receiving. We look forward to continuing in the preschool program next school year!

The teachers at Eastside are very compassionate to their students.  Every teacher takes time out to make sure every student is recognized.  Eastside Lutheran emphasizes God in their daily curriculum.  My daughter has learned a lot and has learned to embrace Jesus daily.
