We are a Non-Denominational Christian preschool. We see this as a privilege and we are careful to make sure that means something other than in name. We also want to be doing more than highlighting God during Christmas and Easter. So, in addition to those special times , we start each class with a child's prayer. A Bible story is read each day and we pray before our snack. Of course books, puzzles and games are used that have a Christian theme. We also talk freely about God's loving us and how to love others. By doing these things we feel we are inviting God into each day and making him a priority in our student's lives.

This school was established to provide an opportunity for 3 and 4 year old children to play and learn in a caring Christian environment. Our goal is to foster development of the whole child (spiritual, emotional, creative, and physical) and install a life-long love of learning.

We also provide Kinder/Pups 4 year old Kindergarden in partnership with the Tomah School District.
