First Christian Preschool began in the early 70's with an in-house kindergarten. When kindergarten was moved into the public schools, a four-year-old class was added. Demand has allowed us to expand through the years and we now offer classes for 2, 3, 4 and 5 year olds.

Our philosophy is that every child is unique and each should leave our school knowing they are loved and looking forward to their future school experiences.

Schedule of Classes:

  • Two-Year-Old Classes - Monday, Wednesday and Friday (3 days) -- Tuesday and Thursday (2 days) or a combination of the two classes for 4 or 5 days.
  • Three-Year-Old Classes - Monday, Wednesday and Friday (3 days) -- Tuesday and Thursday (2 days) or a combination of the two classes for 4 or 5 days.
  • Four and Five-Year-Old Classes - Monday, Wednesday and Friday (3 days) -- PreK Monday through Friday (5 days).

All preschool classes meet from 9 a.m. until noon with extended care before or after class at 7:30 a.m. and until 5:30 p.m.

First Christian Church also offers a Mothers Day Out program called Toddlers-N-Training. This program is in session one day during the week (Tuesday or Wednesday) from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. for children one year of age by August 1.
