We called for a tour of St Paul preschool based off a road sign and we were so glad we did. Our son had never been cared for by anyone other than family and it was going to be difficult to find people we trusted. Right away we knew St Paul was the right place for him. The care and love that goes into creating a fun, stimulating, and nurturing home away from home was evident with our first visit and we didn’t hesitate to enroll him as soon as possible! Although it was hard to leave that first day, we knew this would be the best place for him. The other children embraced him (values no doubt supported by the teachers) and in no time he could not wait to go to school! He went from a relatively reserved, cautious kid to a confident, outgoing, curious learner. As his time at St Paul comes to a close, we feel nostalgia knowing this may be his only experience with such love, support, and individual attention in a school environment. Every adult at the school encourages his interests and supports him in being his own person and bringing his authentic self to the classroom community. But we comfort ourselves knowing that we could not have given him a better start. He is socially, emotionally and academically ready to be a kindergartner!  Not only that, but we have made friends with families that have enriched our lives and will always remind us of these wonderful years.

“Our family is new to the area so when I visited the first time to Sherwood I started looking around for a suitable preschool for my 4-year-old, my local church highly recommended that I ask and check out St. Paul Lutheran. I did and I don’t regret it. Their staff is very welcoming and plenty of varied space for kids to explore and learn in. my preschooler felt at home from the first week of school and is excited to come to school.”

“We have had all three of our kids go through St. Paul Preschool. It has bee such a warm and loving environment for them to grow and learn. The classroom is so nurturing and fun and provided the perfect ‘positive experience’ for school so that they were ready to enter kindergarten. I love that it is a classroom for all kinds of students and learning styles. My kids were able to have so many hands-on experiences while teaching the important basics of kindness, manners and cooperation.”

“Sherwood’s ‘Hidden Gem’ is what my husband and I have always called St. Paul Lutheran School. We have never been disappointed that we chose St. Paul to be the school where our kids got their school careers started. 

St. Paul staff has done an amazing job preparing and laying a strong foundation for my kids to succeed in their next school experiences as well as giving them the strength and knowledge to call on God in their daily lives. It has been heartwarming to see my kids grow both academically and spiritually as they will carry these school experiences with them their whole lives.”
