In their own words
Saint John Preschool was created to provide a Christian early childhood experience for children. Our learning environment will reflect a Christian-centered focus in order to help model and teach about God's goodness. In that context, it is our goal to provide a variety of experiences and opportunities for the social/emotional, cognitive, physical, language and spiritual development of Saint John Preschool children. Through learning activities and play, each child will be encouraged to grow at his/her own rate. Children will be encouraged to imagine, explore, invent, create, interact and express ideas and feelings. A child's work is play!
Saint John Preschool's mission is to provide a quality Christian environment that nurtures growth and learning through physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development for children ages three to five years.
