Growing in God's Love
As a ministry of St. Matthew Lutheran Church, we aim to provide excellence in education and to share God's love with young children and their families.
Committed to Excellence
The preschool at St. Matthew Lutheran Church began in 1972 as a co-operative nursery school with a firm commitment to helping each student reach their unique potential intellectually, socially, physically, and spiritually. After 40 years of service to the community, we remain dedicated to providing excellence in education and faith formation in a safe, nurturing Christian environment. While we have changed the co-op piece of our program, we maintain the strong partnership between the parent and teacher as a top priority. We continue to strive to provide what is best for children developmentally and academically to best prepare our students for the next stage in their growth. We remain committed to the ideal that “play is the work of childhood” and that is how children learn best.
We provide excellence in education in a safe, nurturing Christian environment.
We are a licensed facility through the Maryland State Department of Education License #75043 and we participate in the Maryland Excels program.
We offer educational programs for children ages 2, 3, and 4 year old children, as well as Kindergarten Prep.
What's New at St. Matthew Preschool?
100th Day Circus
Come one, come all, to the 100th day of school! What a way to spend the day celebrating 100 days of learning and fun. Numbers were the stars of the day! We enjoyed fun math centers and counting unlike any you've seen before! It was the best show on earth!
Teddy Bear Clinic
We enjoyed a fun morning learning with the healthcare professionals at Upper Chesapeake. As part of a good health and hygiene unit, our three year old students, "treated" their bears with care. We learned about the tools and materials our docs and nurses use to keep us healthy and to heal our bodies.
