Our purpose is to glorify God by sharing the love of Jesus with preschoolers and their families. By the time our kids enter Kindergarten, we want them to understand that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their best friend forever. Just as children are a rich heritage for both parents and the body of Christ, parents and members of the body play essential roles in making God’s love real to little children. It is our desire to come alongside parents in nurturing the faith of their children. Our responsibility is to prayerfully model and teach truth.
