Junior kindergarten

Our two Jr. K classes are designed for children 4 and 5 years of age who are entering Kindergarten the following school year. In our Jr. K classes we focus on social development, manners, and following routines and rules, while still providing a fun and educational experience.  


Using a strategically planned curriculum, our teachers work alongside students in many ways including Bible, chapel time, art, science, Zoophonics reading, circle time, math, and small groups to ensure that your child will get the best preschool experience possible.  

By the time students enter kindergarten, they will not only have a great foundation with their academics, but be able to function socially and respectfully with their classmates and teachers.

2-Year old program

Our 2-Year Old Program is designed for children who are 2-years old or are a young 3-years old who are not potty-trained or in the process of being potty-trained. In the classroom, these students will learn with hands-on experiences and play. Your child will be involved in dramatic play, music, circle/story time and small group time to encourage hands-on learning. Your child will also be learning to follow routines and directions. Students will learn self-help skills and independence through socializing with peers and teachers, all while learning how to thrive in a classroom setting.

As a Christian preschool, your child will be taught the love of Jesus through Bible stories, songs and prayers. Your child will develop in a loving, kind, safe and secure environment where students feel loved and cared for.

3-year old program

This class is designed for children who are 3 to 4.5-years old. The goal in this classroom is to create a developmentally appropriate environment for each individual child. Your child will grow in self-help, academics, motor skills and most importantly students will learn a love of Jesus Christ through songs, stories and prayers. 


This class will prepare your child academically and socially for our Junior Kindergarten program by using a structured curriculum as well as a variety of hands-on activities.
