Accreditation & Licensing

Tree of Life Lutheran Preschool is accredited through Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod School Accreditation (WELSSA) and the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA). Our program is licensed by the Illinois Department of Children & Family Services. Tree of Life Lutheran Preschool admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies and other school-administered programs.

Tree of Life's accreditation was renewed by WELSSA in October 2020 after an on-site review, and Tree of Life was given "exemplary" status. After five years, we remain the only ''stand alone'' preschool in the synod to be accredited by WELSSA.
