Palos Lutheran School Preschool/Kindergarten program was expanded in the 2006-2007 school year with the opening of Trusting Hearts Preschool & Kindergarten.  The program now offers an optional full day program along with the traditional half day program.

Trusting Hearts Preschool & Kindergarten is dedicated to assisting parents in the development of their children through a Christ-centered curriculum.  We want to assure you that we will do our very best to make your child’s learning process a positive and exciting experience so that each child may develop to his or her God-given potential.  Each child has great things to offer and we want to capitalize on those talents in a preschool/kindergarten setting.  

There are now two options for parents who would like to enroll their child in our program:   
Currently, we offer a 5-day a week, half-day program to accommodate those parents who would like to send their child to school from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m.  This program is available for 3-4 year old preschool and kindergarten children.  The majority of the academic classes will be held during this time.  This will include Good Morning Circle, Reading Readiness, Math Advantage, Free Play, and Story time.

We have added a 5-day a week, full day option for those parents who would like their child to continue learning throughout the day.  The full day program operates from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.  From 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. the schedule will be the same as that of the half-day program.  The children will then eat a bag lunch in our multipurpose room.  In the afternoon, the children would be involved in devotion, Quiet Time, Center Time, and a Science/Social Studies Thematic Unit.
In addition, we offer a before and after school care program.  The before school program runs from 6:00 – 8:00 a.m. and will include a cereal breakfast.  Our after school care program runs from 3:30 – 6:15 p.m.  There is also an available “drop-in” hourly charge for those parents who do not need the service every day.

The Trusting Hearts Preschool & Kindergarten director and lead teacher is Mrs. Kiara Potempa.  She will direct the program and see to it that it runs according to its purpose.  She is very excited to teach God’s precious children.  

We look forward to providing your child with a positive, Christian learning environment through Trusting Hearts Preschool & Kindergarten.
