About Us

Salem Preschool opened in the fall of 1971. Salem Covenant Church was new in the neighborhood and we wanted to reach out to our new community. We are proud of the fact that all of our teachers have college degrees in elementary and/or early childhood education.

We have been together as a staff for many years challenging, teaching and loving the children in a creative way. Salem Preschool will provide a positive start to the beginning of your child’s school experience.


"For the past three years, I have had granddaughters enrolled in Salem Preschool. As a result of conversing with them, I have a clear picture of the Salem program, instructors and related classroom activities. There is no doubt in my mind that my granddaughters enjoyed every day at Salem. The school provides an excellent environment, caring instructors and well-appointed classrooms. Equally important is the curriculum itself which I know has fully prepared my granddaughters for kindergarden, one who is now moving on to 1st grade and one entering kindergarten in the fall of 2013. I can recommend, without hesitation, the Salem program for its development of both social and academic strengths in children while providing an enjoyable place to learn."

Our program has a well-planned, two year curriculum with a Christian emphasis. We are licensed by the Department of Human Services, State of Minnesota. There are 20 children in each class taught by two teachers. Each day’s activities will be planned by qualified staff members. Our goal is to help children relate successfully to their peers and the world around them as well as to be prepared for kindergarten.

Our curriculum strives to introduce our students to their world and their community through creative play, books, songs, special visitors and field trips. We also hope to learn about each other, how we are alike and different, and to appreciate and respect ourselves and others.
