In a gentle and loving environment, with Bible stories and songs, we offer the good news of Jesus Christ to children of all faiths and denominations. We offer both traditional half-day programs and full-day/flexible schedule options.

We offer small classes with one teacher and one aide in each room. Our teachers hold degrees in Early Childhood or Elementary Education OR have earned a CDA certificate. All staff members have First Aid/CPR training and attend additional courses to stay up-to-date.

We have a large fenced playground and 16 acres of land where children have room to run, jump, explore, and engage in supervised play – both structured and unstructured – and where we have an abundance of opportunities to learn about God’s Creation!
