More information about our Classes

Our teachers cover a wide range of topics throughout the year, often based on seasonal or holiday themes. We encourage hands-on learning with science experiments and art projects where each child can express their individual creativity. Children will experience success and gain self-esteem through a variety of activities. All classes enjoy “Discover God” Bible stories with the church’s pastors and “Discover Music” visits with the Director, one special visit each week. We also schedule field trips outside of our preschool building, as well as fun “family” events throughout the year.
