History of our Preschool


     The St. Paul Lutheran Preschool program opened in the fall of 1987 with an enrollment of five children.  The mission of the preschool is to let the children know of Jesus' love and to provide an enjoyable and educational group experience as a groundwork for future learning.  Kris Berger was the original director and, initially, the only teacher.  In 1993, a second teacher, Sharon Fraker, was added to handle the additional students.  Penny Randolph took over as a teacher for Sharon in 1997 and in 2009 she became the Preschool Director.  Kathy Schmidt eventually came on board as a preschool teacher when Kris Berger retired in 2009.  In 2017 Kathy Schmidt left the preschool and Malinda Thompson became our new teacher.  This year Penny Randolph retired after 24 years of service.  On July 1, 2020 Malinda Thompson became the new Preschool Director.  The preschool has an enrollment of 48 children and is open to members and non-members.
