All of our classes are staffed with loving and qualified teachers. They are chosen for their love of children, their passion for teaching, and their desire to share their love of Jesus with others.

Serving children age 6 weeks-5 years old.

We believe that children learn best through play. “Play” is the language of a child, and “toys” are their words. Our staff will strive to create a fun learning environment for your child that allows them to reach milestones, exercise their imagination, explore new ideas and practice social skills.

We believe that each child is unique and special– fearfully and wonderfully made. As such, our curriculum has been adapted by our staff to be age appropriate and engaging for each individual child at their various stages of development. Teachers will use the ABC Jesus Loves Me curriculum for the 2 year olds, 3 year olds, and the transitional kindergarten class. Children will spend time in different activities teaching them letter recognition and sounds, awareness of numbers and shapes, pre-reading skills and sight word recognition, as well as leaving plenty of time for just having fun! Our infant and toddler classes will follow a Bible story plan and will have special lessons and activities our teachers prepare that are age appropriate.

A more detailed daily schedule will be posted in each classroom so you and your child will know what to expect each day.
