- Our preschools provide a Christian-based learning environment for children ages 2-4 years.
- We hire staff that love to interact with children! All staff members meet all of the requirements laid out by the Department of Human Services.
- Each classroom has a teacher and a teacher associate.
- Our curriculum is based on the Creative Curriculum early childhood education system.
- Our teachers prepare children for kindergarten by teaching them the importance of following directions, social interaction, and exploratory play. Instruction is individualized to meet the needs and interests of students whenever possible.
