Ark Angels Preschool is an early childhood ministry of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. The mission of the school is that all our families and children may experience the love of Christ through an enriched early education program. Ark Angels is dedicated to provide a foundation for spiritual, cognitive, social, emotional and physical development for young children.
It is the philosophy of this school that early childhood should be a time of discovery, exploration, security, warmth and fun.
Our curriculum is designed to be developmentally appropriate, while integrating Christian principals. Child-directed and teacher-supported learning and play are essential parts of our program. Children enjoy an environment rich with concrete exploration and socializing opportunities.
We provide stimulating learning activities, field trips, chapel time, music time, an introduction to Spanish and Sign Language along with individual and cooperative play environments in order to meet the unique needs of each child.
Young children are creative and receptive; this program strives to nurture and encourage these qualities in our students as they begin their educational journey.

- Sharing and conversation time
