Westmaple Nursery

Westmaple Preschool has been teaching the children of this community since 1950  Classes are held Monday-Friday from 9 to 11:55 am from September through May.   Westmaple welcomes children of all ethnic backgrounds and religious preferences, but we are a distinctly Christian School.

Westmaple is located in the education wing of Lutheran Church of the Redeemer with five classrooms serving 102 children ages 2 ½ – 6 years over a 5 day period with a maximum of 102 children in attendance every day. The student to teacher ratio varies due to the age of the children. We abide by all state regulations; therefore the student to teacher ratio can range between 8 to 1 to 11 to 1, depending on the classroom.  However Westmaple ratios are usually between 7 to 1 and rarely a max of 10 to 1.

Westmaple Nursery Schools recognizes that all children are created in the image of God. Therefore, through a Christ-centered environment of love, laughter and learning we are dedicated to developing within each child the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical growth appropriate for our preschool children. Westmaple Nursery School is where the journey begins.


Westmaple Nursery School is grounded in the knowledge that Jesus loved and valued little children. In Mark 10:14b it is written: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth; anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. And he took the children in His arms, put His hands on them and blessed them.” So, like Jesus, we too put our arms around our children and love them. Through play, instruction and story time we teach our children that laughter and learning go hand in hand. Westmaple Nursery School is where the journey begins for their academic and formal religious training.


Based on the Scriptural truth that “We love because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19), Westmaple Nursery School’s basic philosophy is love. We seek to develop each child to his and her fullest potential of growth spiritually, emotionally and intellectually. All our steps are guided by our faith in Jesus Christ.
