Welcome to His Kids preschool!
We are a Christian preschool that prepares children for their school experience in a loving Christian setting by providing a love for Jesus as well as a love of learning. His Kids has been dedicated to these two goals since our inception in 1999.
2019-2020 REGISTRATION STARTS MARCH 7th!
Alumni families can register beginning March 1
We follow the public school age requirements as well as the Rochester school calendar. Children need to be 3 or 4 by August1 in order to attend this year’s classes.
We do sometimes make exceptions as long as you understand your child will not be able to enter Kindergarten unless they are 5 by August 1.
We offer 2 different age classes.
3 year olds
We offer a class for 3 year olds, where we focus on social skills and basic learning. The class meets on Mondays and Tuesday. We cap enrollment at 12 students for this class.
Our Pre-K class is designed for kids heading to kindergarten the following year. It is much more academic and we stay in constant contact with Rochester schools to make sure we offer what they want to start kindergarten. We cap enrollment at 16 students for this class.
As of now, we have 3 teachers working with our preschool. Each brings a unique perspective to our preschool.
Our Head Teacher, Lisa Hooley, has been teaching preschool for many years and has been certified with an Early Childhood license.
Helping Lisa in the 3 year old class is Amy Widman. Amy has had her three children go through our program and was very active in helping with their education. When we had an opening for teaching this class in 2013, she brought her energy and experience to help the three’s program.
Assisting in the Pre-K class is Melva Stamberger. She holds a MA degree and has been involved in youth education for many years through the 4H, Purdue Extension Cooperation before coming to work for His Kids.
Our teachers are supported by an active board of former parents, public school teachers, and public school board members.
