"We are so happy to be a part of Sammamish Hill Lutheran Preschool!  We transitioned from another preschool after moving.  Our son started in the Pre-K class and the welcoming environment and loving teachers showed us we had found a special place!  We toured every school in the Sammamish and Issaquah area and we are so happy with our choice.  The lunch bunch option was a big plus for us.  SHLP has a great combination of academic and play based learning, the classrooms are stocked full of inspiration and the school is clean and safe.  We are especially excited they opened a Mommy and Me class this year so we could start attending with our youngest of three.  We are looking forward to the years ahead and would recommend the school to anyone."

“We have two children who attend Sammamish Hills Lutheran Preschool, and we could not be happier with our choice in school.  As a former educator, I am very selective about my children's school experience, but my expectations for preschool have been exceeded at SHLP.  The teachers and director have been nothing but loving, supportive, kind, and welcoming to all students and parents.  My kids love going to school, and are disappointed when it's not a "school day."  My son, in particular, has grown and matured during his four years at SHLP in ways that I could not have imagined when he started; it has truly been amazing to watch.  I have no doubt our children will be ready for Kindergarten when they leave SHLP based on my observations of my own kids, other pre-K students at the school, and the dedicated and talented teaching staff we have.”

 “SHLP was our first preschool experience.  We have nothing but wonderful things to say about this preschool!  The staff is kind and caring toward students and families. All of my children love(d) attending classes.  The school provides wonderful learning opportunities through play based themes and activities.  My son was well prepared for kindergarten (both socially and academically) after attending SHLP.  We are happy to have found such a fun learning environment for our children.”

 “After extensive research and many tours of preschools on the Sammamish plateau we selected SHLP for our son.  The teachers are exceptionally qualified, loving, creative, and everything you'd want a preschool teacher to be.  The director is professional, smart, kind, and always has time for parents.  The school also offers a strong music and movement program and features many in-school and off-site field trips to enrich the school year.  My son was greeted each morning with a hug and left school with a smile each and every day.  He was very prepared for his first day of Kindergarten and we are very grateful to the SHLP staff.”

“The staff at Sammamish Hills Lutheran Preschool are so thoughtful and kind, I couldn’t think of a better place to send my sons to school.  Each lesson and class is meaningful: from nature walks looking for spiders to chapel lessons to art projects that my boys are so proud of, makes each day special.  As a former teacher it is important that my children are in a school that creates a love for learning, fosters positive peer relationships and builds confidence.  These experiences helped my oldest son to transition smoothly into kindergarten.  I now have my youngest son attending SHLP and I know the same foundation will be laid for him as well.  When my oldest, Nick, went to visit his 3’s teachers recently the teacher had tears in her eyes as she gave him a hug.  A teacher like that is truly priceless—we are so thankful to be a part of Sammamish Hills Lutheran Preschool!” – Molly

“We value all of the time and effort that the teachers put into each and every day at preschool and we respect their attention to challenging age appropriate activities and lessons. We are also so happy that Sam was able to learn in a strong Christian environment. However, what we are most impressed with at SHLP is the love that we found there -- from the first day of school Sam knew that he was loved and he was able to thrive in the positive environment that his amazing teachers created. I loved my time as a parent so much, I now teach here!” - Shana Tischaefer
