Do I need to be a part of a Lutheran church to have my child attend preschool here?  

Although all are welcome to worship with us at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, you do not need to be of the Lutheran faith for your child to attend preschool here. We are a Christian preschool and welcome all. 

When do you start registering for preschool?

We start registering for the Fall start of preschool the March before. Contact us as soon a possible to secure your child's place in class. You can send an email at or call us at (360) 551-4704.

How old does my child need to be to attend preschool?

Your child needs to be 3 years of age by August 31 to attend preschool at St. Matthew Preschool.
We also have a birth to three program for younger children.

My child is not yet old enough to attend preschool, can I still register them?

YES! we have a list of the coming school years that your child can be placed on until they are old enough to start preschool. Just message us with your contact information and we will call you and make it happen.

Does my child need to wear a school uniform?

Yes, here at St. Matthew our uniform is khaki bottoms and a red polo shirt. You will receive a shirt with the logo on it with your registration fee. We have shorts that you can purchase or you may buy a red shirt elsewhere, the logo does not need to be on it. Girls wearing khaki skirts and jumpers need to wear shorts or tights underneath. Closed-toe shoes of your choice. Preschoolers are asked to bring an extra change of clothes in their backpack.

What does my child need to bring to school each day?

Your child will need a backpack that they are asked to bring daily with a uniform change inside, along with a coat/jacket.

My child is almost potty trained, can they still attend?

Preschoolers need to be potty trained and independent in this area when coming to preschool.

What do you do when it snows?

We follow the Port Angeles school district to know what the roads are like on bad weather days. If public schools are canceled or delayed because of weather, snow, or ice, preschool will be canceled for the day. Snow days are not made up.
