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:

Happy Summertime!

We pray the time away from the classroom is a blessing to your family and encourage you to spend lots of time together learning.  Learning doesn’t have to involve a tablet or screen, a pencil or a paper!  Take a walk and note the direction of the cloud movement or the shadows.  Look at leaves outside and compare their sizes and shapes.  Play in the water and see which container holds more water.  Summer is full of teachable moments- enjoy them :).

Please do not hesitate to email me over the summer-  I have some more spaces in the 2018-19 PK classes, so tell your friends!
