Call the preschool (229-3883) for costs, scholarship information, and space availability.

Our mission is to nurture a love of God and a love of learning. Our philosophy is that preschool is a place where many children begin their initial education experience. A time of growing in awareness of self and others that allows children to play, explore, and imagine. Each child will feel safe, loved, and respected and recognized as an individual with needs and potential.
