"Let the children come to me and do not hinder them,
for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 19:14
Welcome to a Preschool
With a Difference!
King's Kids Preschool is a mission service of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church to the Columbia Falls community.
King's Kids Preschool is different from other preschools. First, we proclaim the Gospel of Jesus to help each child grow spiritually as a child of God. Second, we help each student to prepare for school by developing socialization and academic skills. As people of God, we believe each child is a rare, treasured creation of God, and we respect the unique pattern of growth and the individual learning style of each child entrusted to our care.
King's Kids Preschool promotes the spiritual, cognitive, social, emotional and physical development of each child with an educationally sound program. The curriculum is consistent with the beliefs of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. It accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed Word of God, and the confessions of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod as the proper exposition of those Scriptures.
Preschool starts in September and ends in May each year. We observe the same schedule of days off for holidays and vacations as set by the Columbia Falls School District No. 6.
The preschool day runs from 9:00 a.m. - Noon. A typical day includes a morning opening, daily weather and date, announcements, Jesus time, activities, academic lessons, chapel time, and (of course) snacks! We offer three different attendance schedules:
Three-Day Week - Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
Three-Day Week - Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
Five-Day Week - Monday through Friday
Tuition and Fees
Tuition is charged on a monthly basis. Full payment of the registration fee and first month's tuition are required to hold a position in an upcoming class. The first month's tuition is due at registration and is non-refundable. Each student's family is responsible for payment of the tuition and registration fee. No child will be admitted into a new class until the registration fee and first month's tuition are paid in full.
Each monthly tuition payment is due by the first day of that month. Charges incurred by checks returned from a bank (e.g., not-sufficient funds, account closed, etc.) will be added to the tuition owed.
Scholarships may be available. Please contact the preschool for further information, or download the Scholarship Application.
Three-Day Programs = $175.00 per month
Five-Day Program = $200.00 per month
One-time registration fee for the school year = $100.00
Registration is limited to 14 students per class, with an ideal ratio of one staff person for every seven students.
Registration is on a first-come / first-served basis, determined by the date that the Registration Application is received. Registration preference is given to the children of ORLC members.
Our preschool class setting is designed for children who are 3 ½ to 5 years old. Students must be at least 3 ½ years old by September 1st of the school year, and must be able to use the bathroom independently.
King's Kids Preschool does not discriminate in admission or enrollment based on race, sex, color or national origin.
