Mission Statement


New Hope Lutheran Preschool provides a Christ centered environment to help children develop their God-given talents and abilities, as well as to foster spiritual, physical, intellectual, social and emotional growth.

3/4-Year-Old Classroom

Children in the 3 and 4-year-old class gather

Monday through Wednesday from 9:15 to

11:45 am to play, sing, and learn in a caring environment.
Throughout the year, the children enjoy free play time inside and outside, sing songs, talk about the weather and the days of the week, work on their shapes, numbers and letters, make crafts, eat snacks together and hear about God's love for them in Jesus Christ.  Holly Mahnensmith and her aide, Sue Buchinger, bring a wealth of teaching experience to the classroom and they are excited to help your little one grow in these precious early years!

4/5-Year-Old Classroom

 

During the school year, our 4 and 5-year-old

class meets Monday thru Friday from 9 to 

11:30 am in a caring environment designed

to prepare students to enter kindergarten. As they prepare for school, students also work on important classroom and social skills. Kari Wallis and her aide, Linda Bultemeier, accomplish this in creative ways through songs, crafts, games, and stories. At this level, students continue to enjoy inside and outside play time, talk about the calendar and weather, learn bible stories, memorize Bible verses, and learn of the great love that God has shown to them in Jesus Christ.  Come visit our preschool and find out how your child can learn and grow here.

More About Us

Classroom experiences aren't the only way students learn!  New Hope Lutheran Preschool takes a variety of field trips every year.  Favorite field trips include nature walks, a pumpkin patch, East of Chicago Pizza, the Ossian Public Library, and the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo.

Preschool students are also blessed to have a variety of individuals share their time and talent with our Preschool.  Every week, New Hope's pastor has a chapel service with each class.  The local fire department visits every year to teach the children fire safety.  For many years, a local librarian has come to our school for a story time with the children.
