Lake Harriet UM Preschool is making plans this summer so we are able to provide our students and families with the best educational experience possible in fall 2021 during a continuing COVID-19 pandemic.



Our Mission

  • To provide a community where each child is understood, loved, and accepted leading to a positive self-concept.
  • To provide activities through which each child learns to control emotions, leading to self-discipline.
  • To provide opportunities where children become excited about learning and are successful learners.
  • To provide a program that opens new horizons: to explore and wonder!
  • Lake Harriet UM Preschool is a nonprofit educational organization of Lake Harriet United Methodist Church. The administration of the school is provided by the Director and the Preschool Board.

We are a MN licensed and NAEYC accredited preschool program.  We offer preschool in the mornings from 9:00am-12:30pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Program specifics are available on our Program page.




We will be accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year in December. More information is available on our enrollment page.



We are a MN licensed, NAEYC accredited, half-day preschool with both morning and afternoon sessions.
