Magical Beginnings

 Welcome to the wonderful world of kindergarten! It is our goal to help each child discover the magic of learning. We find out about the world around us by working collaboratively, independently and engaging our minds, hands, and creativity! We invite you to schedule a tour for a first-hand glimpse of kindergarten.


Ascension Lutheran School offers a Kindergarten experience designed to increase children’s academic, social, and developmental readiness for the challenges that await them in subsequent grades. Kindergarten are based on age, assessment, preschool recommendation, and parent/teacher conversations.

Kindergarten students enjoy a full and rich day from 8:30 AM-3:00 PM. They are busy engaging in hands-on learning of standard academics as well enrichment classes such as Religion, PE, Organic Teaching Garden, Music, Technology, and Spanish. The day includes recesses, lunch, and a read & rest time.


Students must be 5 years of age by September 1.

In the Kindergarten program, children flourish academically and socially in a developmentally appropriate environment. Students feel confident, safe, and loved while being challenged to new heights. In this traditional kindergarten classroom format, students build upon their previous experience whether it be from our TK class or a preschool. Upon successful completion of kindergarten, students will advance to first grade.
