Triumphant Lutheran Preschool is a State Licensed School serving the Schertz, Garden Ridge, Cibolo, Universal City, and northeast San Antonio area.  It is our desire to provide a safe and exciting educational environment for your child in which to learn and interact. We strive to prepare your child for kindergarten by working with the alphabet, numbers, colors and shapes. We also try to enhance their learning experience by teaching through specific themes each month. Your participation in your child’s education is encouraged and we invite you to join us for special family occasions like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, our Thanksgiving Program and Feast and, of course, our Graduation Ceremony.

 

Curriculum
At Triumphant Lutheran Preschool, we provide an age-appropriate Christian-based program where children grow academically, socially, physically and emotionally through play and exploration.  Each child is allowed to learn through hands-on  learning opportunities with the guidance of our nurturing staff.
