First Christian Preschool began in the early 1970s 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.
