Trinity Lutheran Preschool in Kiel will be celebrating the one-year anniversary of its expanded program in August 2021.

Despite COVID, preschool officials said they enjoyed a very successful school year with their “threes and fours” combined in a half- or full-day program where the different ages interact and learn from each other.

Because many of the preschoolers this year will be moving on to kindergarten, they will have a number of half- and full-day openings. They will be hosting an open house on Sunday, Feb. 7 from noon until 2 p.m. and a second open house on Tuesday, Feb. 9 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Refreshments will be available following COVID protocals. Tours of the preschool and K-8 classrooms also will be offered. All who attend are able to register for a door prize. There will be two winners this year. Each winner will receive a $50 gift certificate for Stone Dagger and a second one for $50 for Fork & Dagger, both located in Kiel.

Preschool teachers Chris Leathers and Jeannine Kreis and kindergarten teacher Kattie Huber will be available during the open houses to answer questions, show people around the classrooms, and get to know parents and their children.

Leathers said, “Trinity Lutheran Preschool works in unison with parents to help prepare their children for school and life. We work to meet and exceed kindergarten readiness standards. We prepare them for life by teaching them that they are loved by their Savior. Everything we do is built on the foundation of God’s Word. We partner with parents to support the spiritual, physical, emotional, and academic growth of the child.”
