Developing Dynamic Disciples for Christ


Created by God, sent by the Holy Spirit, passionately transforming lives to be like Jesus!


Christ Lutheran Preschool has served the community of La Mesa since 1995. Our facility is open year-round Monday through Friday, 7:00 am - 5:30 pm, excluding noted holidays. Our morning enrichment program is from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm Monday through Friday. Our qualified staff plans and implements a daily curriculum that encourages young children to develop excitement about learning. 


Children must be 2 years of age to enter into our preschool program. Children are accepted through age 5 or until they enter kindergarten. 

Learning Environment

The purpose of Christ Lutheran Preschool is to provide a Christian learning environment where young children will be introduced to Jesus as their personal Savior and friend. Children will learn daily about Jesus’ unconditional love and grace for them. 

At Christ Lutheran Preschool we have a sincere love for children and a commitment to working with families to assist them in developing their child’s full potential. Students in our preschool program learn through play and planned activities. With a structured day, they grow spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, and intellectually. Our entire staff works together to develop a program for preschool through eighth grade. 


We believe that God desires every child to know and love Him. In Matthew 19:14, Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Our goal at Christ Lutheran Preschool is to build a strong foundation in God’s Word and to create a desire within a child’s heart to joyfully serve the Lord.

We believe that families are the first and best teachers for each child’s learning experiences. It is within the circle of a child’s family that children can learn about the world and can learn the love of their Father in heaven.

We believe that a child’s early and first school experiences help form the foundation for a lifetime of learning. Our faculty and staff believe it both an honor and privilege to be in partnership with parents as their children embark upon their first journeys into formal education.

We believe that each child is a unique and special gift of God, born with a natural desire to learn about God’s world.

We believe that each child needs to develop a sense of security and trust in his or her world. Knowing and experiencing the unconditional love of Jesus is the most effective means of developing a sense of trust.

We believe that young children learn best through play. They acquire knowledge of God’s world through repeated hands-on experience.

We believe that young children develop a sense of respect for themselves and others through natural social interactions with children and adults. They learn positive ways of interacting with others through the examples of our staff and through hearing the message of God’s love for all people.

Christ Lutheran Preschool is honored with the trust that families give us when they invite us to take part in the life of their children and family.
