Desert Foothills Lutheran Preschool & Kindergarten is a warm and caring place where children observe and inquire, in order to make sense of their world.  Our school uses the Core Knowledge Curriculum to promote intellectual and emotional growth. The staff provides a team approach which ensures that children finish our school ready for first grade.

Desert foothills Lutheran School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  It does not discriminate on the  basis  of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships and any other school administered programs.

"Friendsgiving 2022"
Our Preschool and Kindergarten celebrated Thanksgiving by packing food boxes for the Foothills Food Bank. Then they treated family and friends to a performance at Chapel followed by a Chick-fil-A picnic lunch on the patio. We are so proud of all our amazing students!


​The Core Knowledge Curriculum has an explicit set of skills that provide the stepping stones children need to achieve developmental goals. This curriculum allows our teachers to identify the abilities of individual children and develop experiences and activities that will meet each child’s needs in the following areas:​

Movement and Coordination

Autonomy and Social Skills

Work Habits

Language and Literacy Development


Orientation in Time and Space



Visual Arts 


Each child will receive an individualized assessment of the core knowledge skills developed throughout the year. We recognize the need to provide classes tailored to the age of the students.  

In addition to the normal class time of 9 am to Noon, we also make available options for lunch, extended days.

Sign-ups are available in the Preschool Office during normal class periods
