“Let the children come to me and do not hinder them.” Mark 10:14

Peace Lutheran Preschool offers a year round all day structured learning environment for each child to grow in his or her relationship with Jesus.

Our Preschool and Early Childhood Center is here to nurture and share the love of Jesus through a developmentally appropriate program of hands-on activities. Our goal is that each child develops his or her own individual God-given potential and love for learning while gaining the academic skills needed as a foundation for school success. Parents can choose from a variety of class options for their children ages 3-5 with qualified preschool teachers leading small groups of students in each class. Extended Care is available before and after preschool sessions for children enrolled in preschool.  Our Summer Enrichment, FUN Under the SON along with Extended Care is offered for children 3-8 beginning the after Preschool graduations in May and ending in mid-August.

Our Early Childhood Center serves infants from 6 weeks of age to those who have turned three after the July 31st cut off date for preschool.  Please go to the Enrollment page for more details.

Currently with have limited enrollment spaces in all areas.  Please contact the Preschool and Early Childhood Center office at (308) 850-2146 for available openings.


At this time, because of government restrictions on gatherings of 10 or more, we are still closed.  Preschool teachers did meet today to discuss plans for connecting with students during the remainder of the school year.  A letter describing this process was sent via email and REMIND to all preschool families earlier today. If you have questions or did not receive the notification, please contact our Director, Amy Penny through the Preschool phone (308) 850-2146 or by email at apenny@peacepreschoolgi.org.

COVID-19 Closure for March 16-20 and beyond

Dear Preschool and Early Childhood Center families,

With deep regret, understanding the impact on your families and our staff, it has been decided to close our programs for Preschool, Extended Care, and Childcare starting tomorrow because of the COVID-19 impact for at least this coming week.

Multiple factors went into the decision and it is not a choice we wanted to make.  We want to provide a safe place for you children and our program staff are also being impacted with their own children being out of school with GIPS, Northwest, Heartland Lutheran, Trinity Lutheran, Grand Island Central Catholic all being closed at least for the next week.

Our ministry team and church leadership will continue to evaluate the situation throughout the week and provide further information to you as soon as we can.

We are definitely living in uncertain times and you are all in our prayers for safety and healing.  We take great comfort in knowing we have an awesome God and it is into His hands we place our hope.

If you have any questions, please contact us and we will try to answer your questions, as we are able.

In Christ,

Amy Penny and Pastor Carl Eliason


What People Are Saying

“This Grand Island, NE preschool has been a wonderful experience for Aiden. He loved the teachers and other kids and was always excited to go every week. I feel he gained valuable social skills and independence. I was also pleased with the things he learned about Jesus. He would talk a lot about that and seemed interested in learning more about the Bible and its stories. Thank you for a great 1st experience with preschool.” – Grand Island, NE Preschool Parent
