LOOKING FOR A LOVING CHRISTIAN PRESCHOOL ENVIRONMENT FILLED WITH FUN AND LEARNING FOR YOUR 3 AND 4 YEAR OLDS?
We would love to meet you and show you the wonderful things happening in our classrooms.

THE PURPOSE OF OUR PRESCHOOL PROGRAM IS:
To provide an enrichment program of love, learning and fun for children 3 and 4 years old. Our program has a developmentally appropriate curriculum of structured and unstructured activities designed to meet the spiritual, emotional, physical and cognitive needs of a preschool aged child.
 
Young children learn through first-hand experiences. Our child initiated/teacher directed curriculum offers wide and varied experiences in art, music, language skills (writing, listening and speaking) phonics, math, the natural and physical sciences, community life, and computer skills. Other activities include crafts, cooking, outdoor play, manipulatives, physical activities and quiet activities. It opens the door to new interests and enriches already existing ones. It provides the children with a chance to work and play with others.
 
Each child develops differently and at their own pace. We honor your child as a unique individual and want to help them grow to become the best person they can be at all levels of achievement.
 
The years between birth and age 8 are defined as early childhood. Parents begin their child’s education at birth, implanting their moral, cultural, ethical, and religious values. We believe that our school, our staff, and our church should build upon this foundation to provide a stable nurturing and consistent environment for your child. We invite you to help us create intelligent, caring and well-adjusted children, they are our future.
 
OUR STAFF
We have two teachers for both of our 3 year old classes of no more than twenty children. We have two teachers for both of our 4 year old classes of no more than twenty children. Our teachers are professionally trained and are carefully chosen for their interest, experience, and love of working with young children, as well as CPR and First Aide Certified.
