Our Staff

We believe that each child is a unique and special gift from God and that He plays a vital role in the development of each child. The dedicated and loyal staff of our Preschool share this belief and carry out our mission every day. We feel privileged and honored to participate in providing developmentally-appropriate and spiritual guidance to the children who are entrusted to us.
