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.

Our PK3 philosophy is to teach from the same curriculum while using our own teaching gifts to provide a unique classroom experience.

Current Notes from the Teacher:

Twas the week before Spring Break when all through the place, you could feel excitement and squirrelliness and a crazy fast pace….

The atmosphere is charged and full of fun this week as we work on the letter X and gear up for a week apart.  Our Jesus Time story is the story of Palm Sunday when Jesus rode into Jerusalem.  We teach kids the entire story of Easter a little early and repeatedly so they can get the details and be prepared when they hear about it and celebrate it in church.  Get set for talk of hosanna cheers, bad guys who wanted to get rid of Jesus and then the sad part followed by our happy ending :).

Remember Grandparents’ Day is April 18th, so return those grandparent addresses today so we can invite them officially!
