The Early Childhood Division believes that this is where all learning begins. Our faculty has the privilege to witness so many wonderful firsts, such as reading, keeping the Word of God in their hearts, and developing friendships that will last a lifetime. We believe that it is our mission to guide the children not only academically but spiritually and emotionally. The experiences that we provide set the tone for their future academic success.
