A place your child will love to come to

Classes are available for 3 and 4-year-old children from 9:00am-noon. A variety of class schedules are available including extended day classes which last until 2:30pm.

Low teacher/child ratios create a non-pressured environment where self-esteem is nurtured and creatively encouraged.

Each day children learn and play through block-building, singing, listening to stories, exploring nature, drawing, painting, and developing self-help skills. Children also participate on a weekly basis in Music and Motor Skills activities in our Gym and Special Moments in the Sanctuary.

A typical classroom is a busy, noisy, happy place where hands-on experiences are the primary learning tool.

These young children experience God’s love in a nurturing environment that facilitates a trusting child/teacher relationship.
