St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Preschool offers a nurturing, academically challenging program in a Christian environment. The preschool is a ministry of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. We are conveniently located near Interstate 83 and the Baltimore Beltway, nestled in the heart of the charming Lutherville Historic District. We incorporate Christian values that are universal human values, practiced by people of all faith traditions. We have been serving joyful little learners and their families for more than 50 years and strive to nurture a love of learning that will last a lifetime! At our school, we treasure the unique gifts and needs of each child.
Our fabulous classrooms are modern, airy, bright and cheerful. Each classroom is filled with books, toys, and educational play centers. Parish Hall, our main school building, is secure, fully air conditioned, and has a large playground, with the latest equipment, right next to the school building. Our secure and fully air conditioned Spangler Hall building is used for the school-wide music & movement program, indoor recess during inclement weather, and on-site field trips with Pumpkin Theatre and the Baltimore Zoo.
Our vigorous and inclusive PTA supports the teachers and school 100%! They work tirelessly to raise funds for: tuition assistance, classroom enrichment, and school-wide needs. They also keep the fun in volunteering by offering many enjoyable adult and family social opportunities throughout the school year.
Our school hours are 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday with a variety of scheduling options. We offer morning classes: 9:00-11:45 for 2s; 9:00-12:00 for 3s, 4s, and Pre-K (with an extended Pre-K option on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 3:00). We offer many enrichment opportunities for our young learners to develop art, foreign language, music and movement skills during the morning classes.

We also offer complementary yearly speech, hearing and vision assessments for all enrolled students. Our school admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin. We are open to children and families of all faith traditions, as well as households who are not active in a faith community. Our student population includes a strong international element with some students coming from India, Syria, China, Japan, Egypt, Iran, South Africa, Romania, Mexico, Czeckoslovakia, and Costa Rica among other countries. Our experienced teachers use ESL strategies for children who are acquiring English as a second language. We celebrate the diversity of our preschool families!
