Our purpose is to provide a stimulating environment in which children between the ages of 18 mos. thru 4 years old can grow, play and learn together.  We recognize that each child is a unique person, with his/her own personality and pattern of development.  In a relaxed atmosphere, emphasis is placed on the individual child's natural growth and need.  It is our desire to broaden each child's cognitive, emotional, social and physical development to make a smooth transition from the home to future life experiences. Through group exercises, the child is able not only to develop the ability to relate to his/her classmates, but also to promote respect and concern for others.  We hope to create the nurturing circumstances to enable young people to grow through Christian Living experiences.
Our Nursery School has been serving the community since its creation in 1965.  The school is endorsed by the Church Administration Board and is governed by a Nursery School Board of Directors composed of church members.
Professional Staff
We have a qualified and educated staff of certified Head Teachers and experienced Assistant teachers.  All teachers are certified in Infant/Child First Aid and CPR by the American Heart Association.  Our Director is a certified teacher and a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
Our Program
A well-rounded program designed to stimulate the child creatively, socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally is planned daily. Children are exposed to a variety of art media, dramatic play, blocks, table toys, music, circle and story time within a center structured classroom.  We have an outdoor playground and indoor large motor areas.  We enjoy parties, cooking, science and many enrichment activities, including several walking distance field trips.  We hope you come and enjoy our FUN!
