About the Provider


The purpose of our Weekday Preschool Ministries is to be a service to  young children and their families.  Whether it is one or two days a week in Mother's Day Out or five days a week in our Preschool Care, we seek to bridge the gap between the home and weekday care in a loving Christian environment that provides challenge and stimulation for motor development as well as enrichment of social skills and a more perceptive awareness of the natural world around us. By teaching in this manner, we want to share with young families our faith in God and His abundant love and care for us. 

We have several Weekday Programs in which to choose.  All are quality programs with dedicated teachers who have intense love for preschoolers.
