Peace Lutheran Preschool

"Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6


Welcome to our preschool family

This is where early childhood education and the love of Jesus collide! Our highly effective teachers will prepare your little ones for kindergarten and beyond while also sharing the love of Jesus throughout their time at preschool.  The perfect mix!

Come take a tour and see what we are all about! 


 We are proud to remind you of two accomplishments. First, we have been awarded the title of “Best Preschool in Peoria” by the Peoria Times in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Second, we are ELEA (Evangelical Lutheran Education Association) accredited. These two things hold us to a higher standard than most preschool you will see in the valley.
