My name is Julia Heinz and I serve Immanuel as PK3 teacher and Director of Admissions and Early Childhood Education.  After earning my teaching degree from Valparaiso University and working with a variety of ages, I can say I love teaching preschool the most!  I live in Dundee with my husband and three children and am the only one in our household who did not attend Immanuel.  Our kids are the fifth generation in my husband’s family to attend ILS!  I feel so fortunate to be part of this ministry and to work with our amazing preschoolers and their families.

Classroom Overview

Immanuel’s preschool utilizes a pre-kindergarten curriculum throughout PK3 and PK4, with a concentration on readiness skills such as fine motor and gross motor skills, print awareness, phonics and math awareness. Daily activities include manipulatives, arts and crafts, circle time, free play, snack and table time.

Current Notes from the Teacher:

Wow!  We are halfway through October and are in the school groove now.  Our students know the routines and are working hard in all they do.  Awesome!

Parents- remember we try to play outside every day, barring precipitation or temps below 32 degrees, so send warm outerwear please.  Hats and mittens/gloves are great too.  Please work with your child on getting their coat on solo and begin to work on fastening the coat if your child has not already mastered that.  It does take a lot of time, but they can do it!

Also keep up the great work on multi-part directions at home.  We see great progress at school with children following directions with few reminders.  Again, they can do it!  It may take a moment for them to digest what you are asking them to do and then do it, but these students are so capable!

Thanks for sharing your children with us :).  What a blessing it is to work with them!
