The Learning Experiences of the Preschool:

  • to know that God is good and loves them
  • to feel more secure in new situations
  • to learn how to get along with other children and adults
  • to build a good self-image
  • to develop coordination of large and small muscles
  • to expand vocabulary through language experiences
  • to express ideas and feelings
  • to promote creativity through exploration of music and arts
  • to develop reading and math readiness skills
  • to enhance curiosity about the world around them

We believe in involving the whole child, including the social, physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual growth of each child, in a caring and Christian atmosphere.


All classes share a similar play-based, hands on curriculum.We believe in offering a nurturing, learning environment to help each child explores, grow and develop at their own individual pace.  We incorporate our Christian faith many times during the day in teaching simple Bible stories, but especially in how we treat one another.


Daily opportunities for learning include Stories, Snacks, Music, Jesus Time, Circle Time for large group time, Center and Small Group for more individualized learning and Outside Time.
