Welcome to Apple's Preschool

at New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church! 


Our program consists of four classes designed to fit the needs of every student and their family.  Through many learning activities, crafts, songs, books, and much more, children are engaged to learn their letters, numbers, colors, shapes, patterns, opposites, rhyming, sequencing, size, etc., along with writing skills.  With a soft Christian environment children are guided through their days to share and care, while using their imaginations and energy to fill our spacious classroom with joy.

Apple’s Preschool is collecting CAPS. . .plastic caps from water and juice bottles, laundry soap, etc.  They will be given to the Boy’s & Girl’s Club of Easton.  The goal is to use this plastic waste and turn it into usable furniture.

The children and teachers of Apple's Preschool would like to thank everyone who supported our fall fundraiser.  In addition to the profit from the products Joe Corbis, we also had cash donations, all totaling $1,025.00.  The preschool will make good use of these funds when the need arises for anything needed for the classroom and/or curriculum supplies.


We also want to thank everyone who attended our Preschool Sunday service.  Nineteen of our preschool families joined us for worship and fellowship.  The children performed their songs wonderfully.


We welcome all to our annual Christmas Program to be held on Thursday, December 19, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.  All of the children will be a part of our "Journey to Bethlehem", with songs that they will practice all month.


Please visit our classroom during the month of December to see the life-sized gingerbread house, "fireplace", and our Christmas tree.



We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year!



​Check out the fun things we did at Preschool in November!



  Our teachers are looking forward to a year filled

with many new learning experiences in 2019–2020. 


We currently have openings in all our classes.

Apple's Preschool is looking for substitute teachers for our 2019–2020 school year. 

If you know of anyone interested in becoming a substitute teacher,
