Every child matters to God and therefore matters to us.
Every parent is our partner in their child’s spiritual upbringing.
Children are gifts from a loving God.
Children grow and develop at unique and individual rates that are often unrelated to chronological age.
Children’s play is fundamental to their growth and development.
Children are active participants in their own learning.
Children learn from one another.
Children flourish in an environment based on trust and love.
At Messiah’s Kids, it is our belief that children are a gift from God and each one is uniquely created and loved by Him! It is our privilege to love and teach them reflecting God’s grace in all we do. We believe a quality Christian Preschool nurtures not only the children but also the parents, and brings them daily to the open arms of Jesus.
Courtney Ludy, Preschool Director
I moved to Boerne when I was in sixth grade and am a charter member of Messiah Lutheran Church. I grew up in Boerne and went on to college at Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State). I have my Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Elementary Education) and am a certified teacher for Early Childhood through 8th grade with certifications in English Second Language, Reading, Language Arts, and Social Studies, as well as being a Generalist in those grade levels. I moved to San Antonio and married my husband, David Ludy, in March of 2004. I taught for 7 years in Judson ISD in fourth grade and served as their team leader for 4 of those years. My twins, Rory and Keller, arrived in March of 2009, and I left teaching temporarily to stay with my boys. We moved back to Boerne in November of 2009 to have our children grow up in my hometown and as a part of Messiah Lutheran Church. I taught at Messiah’s Kids Preschool from January 2010 to May 2010, and then accepted a job with Northside ISD as a fifth grade teacher in August 2010. After our third son, Landon, arrived in January 2011, I felt that God was moving me to go back to Messiah’s Kids Preschool. Through His hand, Messiah’s Kids was growing, and I was able to return to teaching preschool! I received my Director’s certification after completing several classes with SAC. I was blessed to become Director of Messiah’s Kids in August 2013. I am excited to continue my venture in the director position and with our growing school! I love kids, and I want to work with them that they may succeed and grow not only academically and developmentally, but also grow in their faith! I believe that God has led me to be a part of Messiah’s Kids Preschool to make a difference in children’s lives and be a part of their developing faith.
Assistant Director, Kristen Goeke
I have been a member at Messiah Lutheran Church since 1998. In 2012, I was a stay at home mom when God called me back to teaching, this time at Messiah. I had the privilege to teach Transitional Kindergarten for six years at Messiah’s Kids Preschool. In August 2018, I began a new journey as the Assistant Director at Messiah’s Kids Preschool. I am excited as I get to continue my journey playing a different role at Messiah. I can’t wait to get to know all of the families at Messiah this year! I feel very blessed to have the privilege of sharing the love of Jesus with children everyday. I graduated from Concordia University in Austin with a degree in Elementary Education. I graduated with the Lutheran Education designation and Reading specialty. I have taught first and second grades in Lutheran schools and public schools. From 2000-2012, while my children were young, I worked part time tutoring kindergarten and TAKS small groups for Northside Independent School District. During the summer of 2018, I completed the courses needed to receive my directors certification. I am proud to be the wife of Pastor Aaron, and we are blessed with four wonderful children, two boys and two girls
