We are located in the Morning Star Lutheran Church. We have eight classrooms, seven playgrounds and five common areas we use for specialties, free play and events. In 2017, we redid our hallways and entry way, installed an aquarium for our children to observe and equipped our classroom staff with Amazon Kindles. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our facilities for our students and our parents to ultimately increase the impact we have on our children’s futures.
At Morning Star Preschool, we have 7 outdoor age-appropriate play areas for our kids to explore and enjoy. Children need connection with the natural world as a regular part of their healthy growth and development. By playing in our nature area, children’s coordination, balance skills, agility and free play increases and their interest in and knowledge about nature flourishes.
Morning Star has a Five Sense Garden appropriate for all ages to enjoy. Our peaceful garden incorporates elements for each of our senses: seeing, smelling, hearing, tasting and feeling. A garden for all senses is stimulating, yet serene. It excited our senses, yet invites us to be still and enjoy.
Our bicycle community is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn safety skills, as well as exercising gross motor skills. Children can play in the outdoor dramatic play area, ride bikes, practice musical abilities on the drums or play in the large sandbox.
Security and Safety
Morning Star Preschool and Child Care strives for a very safe, secure and loving environment. We would like everyone to enter the Center through the main door. This door will be locked during Preschool hours. Only parents of registered children will be given the security card to enter. All doors to the building will be locked from the outside only.
It is our belief that busy children who are well-supervised are less likely to develop discipline problems. At Morning Star Preschool and Child Care we provide a comfortable atmosphere with positive reinforcement. A copy of our Behavior Management Plan is located in each classroom.
