NeHi Christian Preschool and Childcare is a non-denominational outreach ministry of North Heights Lutheran Church. Our purpose is to aid families, not only preparing their children for Kindergarten, but also to help establish a biblical foundation in them which they can use throughout their lives.

To this end we seek to provide a stimulating, yet peaceful, atmosphere in which the child’s care is based on biblical principles. In this setting the child will be instructed in the knowledge and love of the Lord and His Word, and learn the foundational skills necessary for their next level of education. Character-building with pre-academic learning and experiences are our main goals. Confident, secure, skilled and self-controlled children are the best prepared for future education as well as for life itself.


NeHi has developed its own unique curriculum consisting of a preschool with pre-academics and social skills interwoven with a biblical and Christian character-building focus.


The NeHi staff is well trained and qualified, meeting all state requirements. Each staff member loves working with children and professes Jesus Christ as Lord of their life. Our staff uses guidance techniques intended to develop age-appropriate skills and behaviors. We maintain a 10 to 1 child to teacher ratio.
