About us

Mama & Me

In April 2016 we began offering a once a week, 45min. Mama and Me (child) class. Along with a story from the Bible, the class focused on practical everyday English phrases both Mama and Child could learn together.

One year later our preschool opened with 7 enrolled children (6 of which came from the Mama and Me class).






April 2018, we will be transitioned once again to an  after school program. 

Our Objectives

  • To be confident, independent, and kind individuals. 
  • To succeed in the core competencies:
    Social-Emotional Development, Physical Development, Cognitive Development, Language Development, and to have a firm understanding about God and the Bible.
  • Our main purpose is not to merely encourage and equip our students to pursue contentment and comfort for themselves, but instead to live a life capable of contributing to and developing others. Our aim is not to receive fame and glory for our own sake, but for Jesus.

“For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.” 

Jeremiah 17:8


We believe parents are the primary influencers and faith trainers of their children, and preschool should complement the family structure whenever possible. Therefore, we strive to operate more like a family instead of an institution.



We believe the preschool years are crucial to building a firm foundation of character and confidence.   Therefore, we seek to offer a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and experiences in a comfortable, non-competitive, and nurturing environment that produces spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and cognitive (intellectual) opportunities for growth.


We believe it is important to foster the development of good character based on the Biblical teachings already being taught in the Protestant Christian church. Good character is the foundation which affects success in life as well as the way we influence those around us. Our desire is to discover and develop a student’s God-given abilities.
