What Parents Say About Our Preschool Programs
We believe that every child is a precious, God-given being with basic needs, including the social, physical, emotional, and intellectual components of the self. We will work to instill proper manners and values, including honesty, sharing, respect, and self-worth. Our purpose is to provide a safe and loving environment that meets the needs of your child.
The 0 – 5 years are critical to the development and lifelong success in children. We are committed to partnering with families during these essential years and equipping them with all they need to be successful.
