           St. John's Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten is located at 1009 Jackson Street (2 blocks north of the Yankton Medical Clinic).   We are a Missouri Synod Lutheran based school directly attached to St. John's Lutheran Church.  Our school facility was built and dedicated in 2001.  This addition included two spacious preschool classrooms, kitchen, in-class bathrooms, and a teacher's storage/work room.
