Little Lamb's 10 Second Scrolling News... Today, 


History of our Preschool:

Little Lambs Preschool was part of the vision of more than a few members of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. In 2001 after some informal discussions, these visionaries realized there may be significance to their ideas and a feasibility committee was formed. Five people were part of this ground breaking committee to study the real possibility of having a preschool on-site at a separate building next to our church.

On the day we went to ask our church's properties committee permission for space to begin a preschool, was also the day the visionaries of Mount Rainier Lutheran High School , now known as Concordia Christian Academy, asked for space to begin the high school on our church property. God was at work for both schools! By allowing the high school to use the space first, necessary changes to the main room were funded and made by the high school, for which we are very grateful.

Preschool Grand Opening September 11th, 2005  Preschool Grand Opening Audience

The three years Mount Rainier Lutheran High School met on the property gave us time to prepare for the best preschool possible. We began with fundraiser's and a long wish list of items to fill the classrooms. God's timing is perfect!

At the beginning of September, 2005, we opened our doors to students for the first time. On September 11, 2005, we dedicated the preschool to our Lord and Savior with a Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony (pictured above). Our first year, we offered one class for three year olds on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. We had six students and felt blessed to have them! Enrollments began to increase based on word of mouth.

In 2008, our fourth year, we offered a three day program to older three year olds and young fours; still focusing on young students to compliment the then running program at Concordia Lutheran School, now known as Concordia Christian Academy. The year went well and we considered the two classes we offered a success.

For our fifth year (2009) we were able to split our one class completely as we grew from eight students in September to seventeen students in February and offer a Monday, Wednesday, Friday program for older threes and young fours, and a Tuesday and Thursday class for three year olds. Feeling that God was still guiding us at our preschool, we were offering classes at separate times for the school year. For the next seven years we ran two separate classes.


In 2015, we received our National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA). We would like to thank everyone for your prayers, kind wishes, moral support, and work put into this endeavor!

For the 2015-2016 school year we added a second teacher to teach the T/TH class. We continued this format for the 2016-2017 school year. Our new teacher was well trained and loved and it was sad to see her leave our school.  However, this gave us an opportunity to walk through a door God opened for us; hiring a teacher whose passion is with the two year old age group. With wanting to honor her skills, while listening to parents suggestions, we began our "Twosday Tuesday" class in the fall of 2017. During that same summer we offered our first summer camp classes for 3-5 year olds.  In the fall of 2017 we also went back to our T/TH and T/W/TH format for students to help make it easier for families who had a two year old and a three or four year old coming to our school.

NEW PROGRAMS: We are now offering Summer Camp 2 days/week spread out June through August. We have also added our "Twosday Tuesdays" class one day/week during the school year for those who are 2 years old by September 1. Our preschool has also added our "Further Fridays" option for those parents looking for more of a Jr. Kindergarten program as it runs 4 days/week. In addition, we have added time to our preschool class offerings, except the 2 year old program, and run our classes for 3 hours each morning.

With our fourteenth year (2018-2019) registrations in full swing, we offer praise to the Lord for our success in providing the local community with a quality preschool. We have grown stronger each year with the knowledge that this mission of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church benefits from God's blessing.

With the addition of this expanding website, our Open Enrollment Policy, NEW Outstanding Quality Programs and continued positive support from the local community, we are attracting new attention to Little Lambs Preschool with programs that we believe are simply the best in Tacoma!
