Valley Covenant Preschool has provided fun, learning and socialization with a Christian emphasis in the community since 1974.
“What I love most about Valley Covenant Preschool
is how they care about my kids and their
development both during preschool as well as
after they move into grade school.”

Areas of development in all preschool classes:
Christian teachers and intentional incorporation of bible stories and lessons promotes positive character development and builds a foundation for spiritual growth as students learn about Gods love for them!
Social & Emotional
Students learn important social skills and how to appropriately interact with their peers through intentional sharing, following instructions and listening to one another.
Physical & Creative
Gross Motor Skills (coordination, control & balance) and Fine Motor Skills (Muscle Memory & precision) are developed through play, music/rhythm, drawing, scissoring, tracing, writing, and dramatics.
Daily learning activities centered around language development, group discussion, self-expression, problem solving, math, and pre-reading skills prepare students for academic success in the future!
