We believe a Child develops mentally, physically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally. We are committed to providing biblically based, age-appropriate experiences to allow each child to progress in these areas at his/her own level of ability while enjoying feelings of success. This is primarily done through hands-on activities and positive Christ like discipline and role modeling of the staff. Our church values children and believes in families. Classes are based on walking skills, age, potty training and individual developmental needs. We sponsor this Weekday Program as a ministry of the church to provide a learning environment that will help preschoolers grow as Jesus grew. “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man” Luke 2:52.
