Information about Preschool Registration

Celebrating 43 Years!


As a preschool, it is our intent to teach and encourage children, of ages 2 through 5 years, in their development in such a way that each child will:

  • have the opportunity to learn and grow in a Christian atmosphere

  • learn that they are important to themselves and to others

  • learn that God’s world is a wonderful place in which to live

  • develop relationships and friendships with others and understand their importance

  • feel secure with others when away from home

  • learn to accept change

  • develop a love for learning
