Our Goal: Working with parents to give children loving, quality care and help them develop a love of learning by: providing a nurturing, Christian environment, meeting their individual educational, social and emotional needs.

At Love & Learn Christian Preschool, it is our privilege to partner with parents in laying the foundation for faith development.  It is our goal to help children develop a positive, loving, and caring image of God by modeling those qualities. The early childhood years are crucial for the sound spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual, and physical development of every child.  We founded Love & Learn Christian Preschool to address these needs and provide all of our students with a top quality, Christ-centered education filled with love, affirmation, learning, and fun.

Our program includes:

· Exposure to Christian values, scripture and stories of God’s people, along with an emphasis on Christian character, everyday.

· Play based, age-appropriate hands on activities.

· Experiences in cognitive development, art, music, movement, science and math.

· Social interaction with adults and other young children in a caring and nurturing environment.

· Student assessment and yearly developmental screenings.


Preschool will be in session Monday - Thursday, from 8:15 to 11 AM.  Tuition is $120 per month.  An enrollment fee of $60 (non-refundable) is due at time of enrollment. This fee will be credited to the last month’s (May) tuition.  The supply fee for the year is $30, due by the first day of school. 


Preschool with Daycare

Another great advantage to sending your child to Love & Learn is that we have a daycare on-site.  Your child can smoothly transition from preschool in the morning to daycare in the afternoon without worrying about transportation.  The cost for daycare is $80 per week.  If you are interested in combining preschool with daycare, let us know when you enroll for preschool.
