Do you provide before/after school care?

Yes! Friends of Jesus offers before care beginning at 7 AM, and after school childcare is offered until 5:30 PM. Please contact us for more information. 

Will my child spend time outdoors?

Children will have daily time outside, weather permitting. Dress children weather appropriate.


Our family is not Christian; can our child still attend Friends of Jesus? How much religion is taught?

We welcome children of other faiths and those who have no experience with faith.  The church calendar (Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter) is incorporated into lessons and Bible stories .  We also teach students about God's grace. A foundation in faith and the importance of Christian core values are stressed through the day’s activities.

How much fundraising will I be asked to do?

Friends of Jesus is a nonprofit outreach ministry of Zion Lutheran Church. Occasional target fundraising for special enrichment activities are offered throughout the year. Participation is voluntary and appreciated.

We have had some inquiries about current wants/needs for the preschool. The following is a link to our Amazon wishlist, which we update regularly: Amazon Wishlist. Thank you!
