Our philosophy

To watch a child develop in their knowledge of the world around them, in their skill with materials both familiar and new, and in their relationship to others is a privilege enjoyed by parents and teachers.

As we develop the theme areas the children learn to work together as a group and independently. They gain socialization skills and develop a positive self-image from their achievements. In general, they learn to think, reason, grow, and explore.

Our science study explores the world of three-, four-, and five-year-olds by using their five senses. We will explain the differences with many different materials to observe changes, sizes, etc. They will develop an interest in nature and wonders of everyday life.

Frohliche staff

Our staff

Frohliche Kinder Preschool has recently expanded its staff to meet the needs of our students. Owner and director Shelley Krosbakken has been teaching at Frohliche since 1993, and purchased the preschool in 2007. Dana Dobbs, Jami Olson, Sara Halverson, and Anne Rydell each assist Mrs. Shelley at various times throughout the week. Jen Anderson works behind the scenes with various projects, and manages the tech aspects for the preschool. All of our staff are former or current Frohliche parents!

Each teacher holds the necessary education to meet the highest standards of her position. Mrs. Shelley has a degree in elementary education, is certified in both CPR and first aid, and is a member of the area PEA (Preschool Educators' Association). Mrs. Sara and Mrs. Anne also have degrees in elementary education. Frohliche Kinder is licensed by Cass County Social Service and the State of North Dakota. Frohliche Kinder was established in 1973.
