This program is available to children from two to four years of age.

Our Program is overseen by an advisory council made up of four elementary school teachers and one school psychologist, which enables us to meet the emotional, spiritual, physical and academic needs of the children we serve.

Lisa Callahan is the Director for our Parents Day Out Ministry.

Purpose: Our program offers an opportunity for academic, emotional, spiritual, and social growth and development in a Christian, structured, loving, and learning environment.  Our Pre-K class is designed to help your child develop skills necessary for his/her first steps to independence--KINDERGARTEN!!!

The curriculum is designed to stimulate the students’ cognitive abilities, to develop fine and gross motor skills, and to offer an opportunity for academic, emotional and social growth in a Christian structured learning environment. Our Pre-K Program uses thematic units with emphasis on letter-sound relationships, numbers, colors and shapes. You will see lots of hands on learning activities, field trips and visits from local community resource persons.
