Welcome to Bethany Lutheran Preschool

Play-Based Bainbridge Island Preschool

Bethany Lutheran Preschool on Bainbridge Island offers preschool programs for children 2½ to 5 years old. Our goal is to foster a life-long love of learning while demonstrating Christian values. We offer a learning environment that allows preschoolers to develop self-confidence, independence, and social skills while giving them opportunities to grow physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

We believe in what research says:
Play is critical to learning and is vital to future academic success.
