Preschool - Age 3


"My daughter Faith started St John Lutheran with 3-year-old PreK. She's now in third grade. Truly a blessing to be able to leave my daughter here over the past five years for eight hours a day! Knowing that she's in a safe place is truly by the grace of God and St John's commitment to serving the Lord and our children and their parents! Thank you!"

Three-year-old students are constantly learning and exploring. They love to explore new places, so we set our classroom up for exploring in a variety of ways — socially, physically, emotionally, and cognitively. We have time for group and individual learning experiences. Every day we discover how great it is to learn! Let's talk about how we can partner in the education of your child.

3-Year-Old Preschool Teacher

Donna Woldt is thrilled to have the opportunity to teach Jesus' little lambs in our 3-year-old classroom.  She earned her Bachelor of Science in education at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. 

Donna delights in helping children of all ages learn and grow. She creates a safe and comforting environment for children in her classroom to learn about God's love for them as well as the blessings of other crucial areas of academia including literacy, sensory exploration, gross motor skills, social and emotional well-being, mathematics, and science. 

Donna has been married to our principal, Jon Woldt, for 32 wonderful years. She is excited about the upcoming school year and the privilege to work alongside a devoted and brilliant faculty. 

"I enjoy working with children and building their confidence. A confident child will be more apt to attain the educational goals set for them. This confidence is reinforced with the knowledge of Jesus’ love for them. Watching each child grow in their confidence and love for their Savior is a tremendous blessing!"
