Our philosophy is that First Christian Church Preschool serves as an outreach tool of First Christian Church. We believe cultivating Godly character into the lives of our students is the most  essential building block of our program. Our mission is to reach and minister to the children and families of First Christian Church and our surrounding community. We promote the love of learning and the love of the Truth, laying a strong foundation in the heart and mind of your child. We provide a loving Christian environment in which children can develop socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually.
