Preschool programs for children ages 3, 4, and 5 years of age.

Serving the Bismarck-Mandan area since 1963

At Martin Luther Preschool we believe in teaching the “whole” child – meeting the needs to grow academically, spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and creatively in each of the children that attend our classes. We believe that “wholeness” springs from faith and belief in the caring Christ.


Our classrooms are created to guide the children to learning and exploration. Teachers quickly respond to requests and individual needs, and the atmosphere is one of mutual acceptance, cooperation and respect. The intangibles of moral training, learning right from wrong, practicing courtesy and concern for other people, knowing that each person has high worth and was uniquely created for a special purpose – these are the special gifts that our preschool classes offer.


Our classes are led by North Dakota licensed teachers who continually challenge themselves through on-going education and training. Our staff is not only experienced in Early Childhood Education and Development, but each hold First Aid and CPR/AED Certification. They are highly qualified educators who are dedicated to the service of God and the service of children – they powerfully model Christ’s love. The network of care to our students and families is genuine – and extends beyond the school day.


If you are seeking a quality education experience for your child, one that provides a firm spiritual and moral foundation for the future, and if you would like your child to experience “wholeness” in all aspects of life, Martin Luther Preschools welcomes you in sharing the caring of Christ.

Goals of Martin Luther Preschool

* Learning of Jesus Christ through formal class and an informal living-learning environment.

* Helping your child have a healthy self-concept, accepting him or herself, and his or her talents which God has given. Providing experiences, interests and activities to fulfill the child’s individual, spiritual, emotional, physical, psychological and intellectual needs. These activities are centered around a weekly theme throughout the classroom areas. Providing guidance as your child becomes less self-centered and starts taking part in small and large group activities.
