Ready, Set,

Ready, Set, Grow preschool in Woodbury, MN is a Christian preschool in which your child will grow, explore, experiment, and discover their world. We promote the social, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual development of children age 3 (by Sept. 1st) through 5-years-old.

A Christian atmosphere of warmth, understanding, and caring.

Our goal is to provide a Christian atmosphere of warmth, understanding, and caring—a place for your child to be that special, unique person that God so lovingly created, and a place where learning is fun and meaningful.

The RSG Preschool program provides opportunities for children to explore materials, engage in activities and to interact with peers and adults to learn and construct their own understanding about the world around them. Children are encouraged to make choices and solve problems in a safe, positive environment that promotes independence, healthy self-esteem, and emotional and social development.


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

— Matthew 19:14

About Ready, Set, Grow Preschool

In 1983, Ready, Set, Grow Preschool was founded as a ministry of King of Kings Lutheran Church in Woodbury, MN. Over the last 38 years, Ready, Set, Grow has touched thousands of families throughout the Twin Cities, helping kids explore their world while growing closer to God.

Our team of teachers and administrators have years of experience in education and childcare. Each member shares an excitement and passion for helping kids grow and learn new things every day. From story time and math class to outdoor play and devotion, our team will inspire your child to explore new things and grow in their faith.

At Ready, Set, Grow, we believe that early learning and exploration in a caring environment is important and essential. Research in child development indicates that children learn as they play and interact with other children, adults, and their environment—an active learning process. The RSG curriculum provides opportunities for your child to play and learn through a variety of experiences in language literacy, math, science, dramatic play, music, and movement. We encourage your child to make choices and guide them to solve problems in a safe, positive environment to promote independence, healthy self-esteem and emotional and social development.
