Kids Connection Preschool

Kids Connection is a Christ-centered preschool whose desire is to get the Word of God into the hearts and minds of our children, help them develop godly characteristics while encouraging girls and boys in daily life and on into kindergarten readiness.

Our mornings together are fun!  We explore, experiment and use our imaginations.  We learn what it looks like to be a friend, how to share and be a helper while also learning the A, B, C’s and 1, 2, 3’s.  Sometimes we just get our sillies out! Our 2-year rotating curriculum includes well rounded preschool material and child development spiritually, socially, physically, emotionally and academically.

Classes are offered three mornings each week, every room having two approved teachers in each. Parents are welcome to help and must have on file a completed volunteer participation form. We are a Nut Free school using an I.D. security system with all classes open to the community.  Potty training not required.  We invite you to call and schedule a tour held weekly on Wednesday and Friday mornings.

    The Finality of Jesus Christ by Jim Andrews and Juli Grose

    The Finality of Jesus Christ

    “Is there really only one way to God?” Many people love to challenge Christians with that question! Was Jesus mistaken when He claimed to be “… the way, the truth and the life?”
