Dear Preschool Families,

We are in an unprecedented and highly unusual time in history. When the Coronavirus started just a few weeks ago, we thought/hoped that it would be a short-term situation. It is proving to be otherwise and it is disrupting our lives in ways that we never thought possible. I’m writing you a letter that I never thought I would have to write.

With a very sad heart, the School Board, upon the recommendation of the Church Council of Bethel Lutheran Church has decided to close the preschool on a temporary basis for the remainder of the school year.

It is our expectation that we will resume business as usual in the fall.

Please know we care deeply about the children and families in our preschool. We pray for your health and safety as well as peace during this chaotic time.                                                              

Debbie Sadler
Director, Bethel Lutheran Preschool

The words of Jesus
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”    John 14:27

Jesus said,

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

Matthew 19:14

OUR PRESCHOOL

A state licensed place where, in a very safe and encouraging environment, your child will learn.  But the most important information we will teach is “for God so loved the world, that He sent His Son, Jesus!”

We offer:

  • Great staff/child ratio
  • Spacious classrooms
  • A covered playground
  • Experienced and/or certified teachers

Our program is designed for children ages 2, 3 and 4.

  • The hours of operation are 7:15 to 5:30 with several options to fit your needs.
  • Preschool classes are from 8:30-12:00, offered Tuesday/Thursday, Monday/Wednesday/Friday   or Monday through Friday.
  • We have extended hours in the morning from 7:15-8:30 and in the afternoons until 1:00, 3:00 or 5:30.
  • We run on the Bryan ISD school calendar for our first and last days of school, holidays and breaks.
  • Enrollment in Bethel Lutheran Preschool shall be open to any child, provided the program can meet the needs of the child.  We admit children of any race, sex, national or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges and activities offered in our childhood program.

We’d love to have you call for more information or to set up a tour of our facility.
