Friends Christian Preschool provides a safe, nurturing environment and Christian teachers who love helping your children learn and grow. Our qualified staff is dedicated to providing an academically stimulating and developmentally balanced program that is firmly rooted in the truth of God’s Word. The purpose of each activity is to help children grow in all areas, nurturing them spiritually, cognitively, emotionally, physically and socially. The children at Friends Christian Preschool learn by doing.

Our students learn to follow the example of Jesus and form their character in His image. During playtime activities inside the classroom and outside, the children develop lasting friendships based on biblical principals.
