     Established in 1966, St. Luke Preschool is located on 5.9 acres at Candlewood Path and Vanderbilt Parkway in Dix Hills. The Education Building, built in 1970, was recently doubled in size during our expansion in 2009. Part of the church ministry, children are admitted from any race, color, nationality and ethnic origin, and need not be church members.

 The staff of St. Luke is dedicated to providing a loving, warm, caring, comfortable and educational setting for the children. The curriculum includes academics, music, religious instruction (chapel) and stimulation through books, toys, trips, class projects and crafts. Most importantly, everyone has fun!
