Welcome to Gethsemane Preschool
“The mission of Gethsemane Lutheran Church Preschool is to serve preschool age children and their families in our community by nurturing the development of the whole child, spiritually, socially, emotionally, academically, creatively, and physically, centered in God’s love for us and all creation in Jesus Christ.”
From September - May-- 3 year-olds and 4 year-olds meet @ 9 to 11:30 - Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday PreK Monday -- 4th day for students who have attended one year of preschool.
Lunch Bunch is offered daily from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (with the exception of days of programs and Back to School Night). Each child brings a sack lunch. We take a max of 10 and a minimum of 3 children per session.
Please sign the calendar only when you know FOR SURE your child will be staying. Lunch bunch is $7/day, PAYABLE IN THE MORNING ON THE DAY your child participates. Lunch bunch supervisors do not handle the funds at the end of lunch bunch. You may purchase a Lunch Bunch card in advance, which are available in multiples of $7 up to $70 and are dated each time your child stays for Lunch Bunch. Please see the director if you wish to purchase a card.
Please be prompt in picking up your child from Lunch Bunch at 1 PM. A $1 late fee will be charged for every 5 minutes after 1:00 PM.
If your child is signed up for Lunch Bunch and you cancel after 8:50 AM the day they are staying for Lunch Bunch, or if you do not notify the preschool that your child will be absent that day, YOU WILL STILL BE CHARGED FOR LUNCH BUNCH. This will be waived in the event that your child becomes ill during preschool hours. If you need to cancel Lunch Bunch, you may call the church office, 503/256-1835, and leave a message that your child will not be staying for Lunch Bunch.
