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:

Where did the time go?  We preschool staffers cannot believe how fast this year has gone, but we look at our students and see they are taller and wiser and ready to go to the next level!


Family Fun Night is Monday, May 22nd from 4:30-6 PM for the PK and K families.  Come over and have a hot dog dinner with us, enjoy time with other ILS families and tire your kids out in the jumpy houses!  From 6-6:20, there will be a Parent-Teacher League meeting in Luther Hall, then the outdoor activities will continue as 1st-8th grades join us.  Our grade school classes will each hold a special event between 6:20-8, from egg drops to little plays…fun for all!
