Faith Lutheran Preschool
Laura Rosentrater, Director
Jackie Squires, Preschool Teacher
Ms. Laura has been the Director for Faith Lutheran Preschool since it opened in 2009. The vision for Faith Lutheran Preschool was desired for her own children when they were small and inspired her to start and develop a Christian preschool program with the help of the Preschool Board, teacher, her family and the support of Faith Lutheran Church and God.
She wears many hats, but her biggest joy is developing and nurturing relationships with students and their families, and helping out in the classes.
She is dedicated to having the best Christian preschool/pre-k programs possible for all Faith's Preschool Families (over 450 families have become part of our Faith LP family) and to serve the needs of our community now and in the future.
Mrs. Squires has been with Faith Lutheran Preschool since it opened in 2009. She has many years of previous experience with early childhood age children, as well as yearly continuing education. Jackie has a heart for Jesus and the ministry of children. Teaching at the Preschool is more than just a profession, it's a passion. Her prayer is that each of her students understand that they are blessed, chosen, redeemed, and truly, deeply loved by Him. She enjoys seeing the wonder and excitement in her student's eyes when she is "seeing the wheels turn" and having things "click" for her students as all the dots connect while they are exploring new learning opportunities. She encourages a love for learning through having fun and play-based activities and is dedicated to providing an amazing first school experience.
Theresa Blanchard, Pre-K Teacher
Mrs. Blanchard has been with Faith Lutheran Preschool since 2018. She has a love for children and passion for teaching that fed her dream into becoming a teacher. After many years volunteering in her children's classrooms, Theresa returned to school for a degree in elementary education. After obtaining her teaching degree, she served as a substitute teacher for both Eastmont School District and Wenatchee School District where she worked with diverse age groups and within a variety of classroom atmospheres. Theresa loves the ministry and the excitement of her students as they learn, play and grow! As she serves as our Pre-Kindergarten Teacher, she can't wait to pour into the lives of our students and teach them about the love of Jesus!
