Would you like to extend your child’s Our Savior School experience one more year?
Are you a family that is struggling with the question of whether or not to wait another year to start your child in Kindergarten?
Does your child “just miss” the September 1st cut off to start Kindergarten, but you are confident your child is ready for school?
Are you planning to enroll your child in a language immersion program?
If the answer to any of these questions is “yes” then Our Savior School Kindergarten program is a strong contender for your consideration.
Our Savior School’s Kindergarten classroom, an extension of our early childcare programming, is designed to meet the individual needs of each student spiritually, academically, socially and emotionally. Enrollment is open to children turning five years old on or before October 1st. Residents of the Minnetonka School District may enjoy busing to and from school when entering our Kindergarten classroom. Our Kindergarten is available on a full day or a half day basis to meet your child’s needs.

God’s will is that parents be a guide for their child’s life. Here at Our Savior School we share in that responsibility with you. One element of the kindergarten program includes working closely with parents to encourage the child’s spiritual, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth. We believe that children learn by doing.
