​The Core Knowledge Curriculum has an explicit set of skills that provide the stepping stones children need to achieve developmental goals. This curriculum allows our teachers to identify the abilities of individual children and develop experiences and activities that will meet each child’s needs in the following areas:​

  • Movement and Coordination

  • Autonomy and Social Skills

  • Work Habits

  • Language and Literacy Development

  • Mathematics

  • Orientation in Time and Space

  • Science

  • Music

  • Visual Arts 

Each child will receive an individualized assessment of the core knowledge skills developed throughout the year. We recognize the need to provide classes tailored to the age of the students.

We fell in love with the school as well as its curriculum and people. All three of our children (ages 19, 7, and 5) have attended the preschool. Best part is, they've all had the same incredible teacher and preschool director. Thank you for loving on our children. Your school introduced us to your church and your church has become home. 



The highest compliment our parents can pay us is the referral of family or friends for preschool at our school. The trust and confidence that you place in us each and every day means a great deal. In appreciation of that trust and confidence, we are excited to share our Parent Referral Program. You will receive a $500 tuition credit for every new family that enrolls as a result of your referral. Visit the school office for more details.
