Welcome to Salem Preschool!
Salem Preschool, established in 1971, has been serving children, ages three to five, and their families in the New Brighton and surrounding communities for over 50 years. As a ministry of Salem Covenant Church, our goal is to Grow God’s Amazing Kids cognitively, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually so they can enter kindergarten with the skills, self-confidence, and love of learning that prepares them for a successful school career. In a Christian environment, our students experience God’s love and learn to love and respect others in God’s world. Bible stories and themes are incorporated into our curriculum and students pray before eating as well as other times during the school day. We strive to partner with parents in the spiritual growth of their children.
Our curriculum includes a partnership with Silverwood Park where children learn about God’s creation and do various activities with seniors from the community. Salem’s large outdoor space allows for outside learning and activities as well as a garden where the preschoolers grow produce which is donated to the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf.
Salem Preschool teachers and assistant teachers all hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree and have over 150 years of experience working with students. Their love for God and their passion for teaching and working with young children are a hallmark of our program.
We would love to have your child join us at Salem Preschool! All are welcome!

Important Links for Preschool Families
Normally, an in-person parent orientation is held on the first day of preschool. Since we are unable to have an in-person orientation, we have made a PowerPoint orientation for you to view. Information about our COVID19 Preparedness Plan is included in this presentation, as well as many changes and adaptations we have made this year. Even if you have had a child at Salem Preschool in the past, please watch the presentation, so you are aware of these changes and adaptations.
Thank you for choosing to send your child to Salem Preschool! We look forward to working with you and your child this year!
