We exist to proclaim Christ’s love and forgiveness to children and their families. To that end, our experienced, loving teachers provide the highest quality care and education for infants and children in a safe Christian Preschool.
We believe that a Christian home is the most important factor in a child’s development. We complement the Christian family in order to promote the child’s healthy development. We believe children deserve a nurturing, safe, and happy Christian environment which promotes their natural curiosity, play and desire to learn. We believe in the promise found in Proverbs 22:6: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is older he will not leave it.”
We believe that teaching and living Christ’s love, trust, respect, and forgiveness makes children capable of loving, trusting, respecting, and forgiving others. By teaching and modeling Christian ideals, we want children to develop spiritually as well as physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. We integrate the faith in all curriculums as we want them to grow and develop as Jesus did: “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” Luke 2:52. The curriculum provides our children with a quality Christian education that will help them develop to the fullest of their capabilities and help them to realize that they are children of God.
We hire Christian teachers who are capable and caring, and whose Christian values and lifestyle enable them to fulfill this Christian vocation. They help lead their class in the knowledge that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and it is through him that we have eternal life. All activities are centered on this premise.
We offer many ways for your children to grow. Reading and Math Readiness curriculums are a part of our focus. We also encourage our students to be engaged in a variety of activities to foster their spiritual, social, emotional, and physical development. Children participate in academic activities, music, art, free play, and center activities.
Isn't school fun?
Students in our three and four year old programs attend Chapel every Wednesday. Chapel meets in our church Sanctuary each Wednesday at 9:30 am. There the children
are taught about God’s love and care for
them, Bible stories, and Christian songs.
Parents are always welcome
to visit and join us.
Music is a special gift, one that we feel should be shared with children. Three times a year the students in our three and four year old classes sing in church for Sunday services. They also participate in our annual Children’s Christmas Eve Worship Service.Please come and see what wonderful, joyful music the children can make!
