The Bible is God’s true message.
It proclaims the law and Good News for all. This message not only gives a positive purpose for this life, but more importantly, it offers life eternal. Our purpose as a church and school is to work with parents in encouraging children in these truths. While developing trust in the Savior, we also seek to encourage the individual’s God-given abilities so children might walk in service to the Triune God.
We offer a Christ-centered, activity-based approach to early childhood education. It focuses on the well rounded development of the child’s spiritual, cognitive, social, physical, and emotional processes. A variety of experiences will be included: Brief periods of formal instruction (including Bible stories and devotions), structured and free play, social interaction and guidance, language activities, science, music, art, and field trips. We encourage Christian attitudes, lots of creative thinking, and building the child’s self-esteem as a redeemed child of God.
Both members and non-members are welcome. However, Bethlehem members and those already in the 3-year old preschool or enrolled in child care will have one month (February) to enroll their children before non-members can enroll. Session preference will be given to applications in the order in which they are received. Bethlehem members are encouraged to send in their registration and first month’s tuition by February 28. Starting March 1, non-members may apply and have an equal opportunity (on a first come, first served basis) to enroll in any available session.
The monthly tuition cost for the 2019-’20 school year is as follows:
*For the two day a week 3 yr-old session (AM or PM – 2 classes) – $120.00 per month
*For the three day a week 4 yr-old session (AM or PM) – $160.00 per month
*For the five day a week 4 yr-old afternoon session – $260.00 per month
This payment is due before the first day of every month.

Parent Teacher Consultations
Teachers are eager to meet with you to discuss the first quarter progress of your child. Parents, you are now able to schedule your times with your child(ren)’s teacher(s) online. Please note that the earlier you go online and sign up for a time slot, the more options you will have! Just go to the Tuesday News page of our website for an easy link to sign up at:
www.bethlehem-wels.org/ministries/school/tuesday-news/ If you do not have access to the internet, please call Beth (262) 251-3120 in the school office to sign up. Those parents that have students in Mrs. Arnold’s program, please schedule a consultation time with her also. (This does not apply to parents of Challenge Program students.) We ask that all parents sign up by October 25th. Please remember that ALL Quarter 1 consultations occur in Germantown Nov. 6, 7 & 8.
Should you need child care outside of the times of the preschool session, our Germantown Campus does offer wrap around care for those in the preschool program. Please contact our Bethlehem Lutheran Child Care office at (262) 257-0408 for additional information. You may also email this office at email@example.com with any questions you may have.
We also offer a free Sunday School session available for your child at both campuses on a weekly basis. This Sunday School takes place on Sunday mornings at 9:15am (at our Menomonee Falls/South campus) or 10:25am (at our Germantown/North campus). We realize that you may already have a church home where your child is enrolled in the Sunday School. If this is so, we do not wish to interfere. However, if this is not the case, we encourage you to take advantage of our program to the continuing benefit of your child. Bethlehem members are encouraged to bring their children to Sunday School as always. Preschool will concentrate on many areas, but Sunday School will concentrate only on the Word of God.
A more detailed letter will be sent out in early August to all enrollees after all the registrations have been received, If you have any questions, please call the child care/preschool office at (262) 257-0408.
