Special Features

Worship Time - We enhance the spiritual growth of our children through a special time set aside each day to gather within the classroom or church sanctuary and celebrate God’s Love. We listen to Bible stories, sing songs, do finger plays, share and pray. This special time is led by our preschool or church staff.

Field Trips - We take monthly field trips to local care centers. The children have an opportunity to socialize with the residents. We work on projects, sing songs and read stories hand-in-hand. The appreciation and love shared by the residents and children is indescribable.
