Mission

Our purpose is to provide your child and family with a warm, nurturing, safe and loving Christian environment where concepts are enhanced, independence is encouraged, and individuality is respected.


Children

Our program is for children ages 6 weeks through 5 years of age. We are open 9:00am until 2:30pm Monday through Thursday. We offer the option of Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday classes. Our program is divided up into three terms - Fall, Spring, and Summer. 

We may have a class for school age children up to age 10 during Hamilton County school breaks. Please check with the director for this availability.

Our facility has a playground for the toddler’s, a separate playground for older children, a full size gym, mud kitchen, and a music and art room. 


Parent and Teacher Partnership

We believe in having an open door policy with our parents. Parents are welcome to stop in at any time to talk with the director or schedule a meeting with a teacher. We send home monthly newsletters with information on the monthly curriculum and upcoming events happening in the preschool and the church.
