Our mission is to provide an affordable, hands-on, play-based preschool centered around God’s unconditional love for children! Child’s World Preschool is a place where we can pair academic education with Christian values and help shape the whole child by teaching them kindness, humility, patience and service. We strive to create an environment that is welcoming, engaging and educational for all children.

Registration is open for the 2024-25 school year.
