​​Statement of Purpose

​The Church is here to minister to God's concern for "family". Our Statement of Purpose is to give loving attention, good recreational facilities, preschool skills, and the best, closest substitute for home to children.

Our school was established in 1964. We, therefore, have many years of experience with an excellent "Quality Child Care" program. Recommendations and praise from parents, community leaders, educators and agencies on the local, county, and federal levels continue to help us meet family needs.

Our goal is to allow each child to reach his/her fullest potential, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. Our aim is to develop each child's independence and self confidence through encouragement and individualized instructions. Our program for preschoolers combines a well-rounded curriculum along with supervised indoor and outdoor play.
