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!
