Redeemer's Preschool and Childcare program has been respected in the Peoria Community for over 65 years. We believe that every child is a precious, unique gift from God.

Redeemer Preschool

Our preschool is one of many ministries within Redeemer Lutheran Church. Redeemer Early Learning Center is a licensed childcare/preschool center that focuses on teaching children about God’s love and providing the best education to get your child ready for Kindergarten.


We are excited to use the religion curriculum from Concordia Publishing House. This curriculum has weekly Bible stories along with educational activities that corresponds with our academic curriculum.


We use Creative Curriculum alongside with the Early Childhood Standards that were created by the Illinois Department of Education.


Our guiding philosophy is that children learn through play. Through play, children learn about themselves, their environment, people and the world around them. Play is critical to the healthy growth and development of children. Both solitary and social play is necessary for a child’s development.


A child can play with a building toy alone and in the process, develop independence, self-sufficiency and persistence. Playing with the same toy with others, the child acquires social skills such as learning to cooperate, negotiate, share, show empathy, take turns, and play by the rules. There are important interpersonal life skills, all of which play fosters. Play in early childhood is the best foundation for success in school.
