pklogoOur Philosophy of Education

We believe all children want to learn and can thrive in a loving, secure environment. We provide a Christian learning classroom that is non-sectarian.

We teach Bible stories and songs about Jesus Christ. We teach letters, writing, colors, numbers and shapes throughout the units of study. We believe children should be given the opportunity to express themselves through art, music, literature and drama.  Experience helps a child become confident in new situations.

Tuition
The preschool program is tuition-based.  The first payment is a double payment for September and June.  Tuition is divided into 10 equal payments. Students may choose to attend 1-5 days a week. Tuition is paid monthly and due on the 1st of the month and considered late after the 5th of the month.  A $20 late fee is added to the account after the 5th.

We strive to keep tuition as low as possible, so we depend on fundraisers to add the additional funds needed to keep our budget in the black.  Family involvement in fundraisers is requested and appreciated for optimal success.
