Our preschool program, Little Hands Learning Kingdom, works from the understanding that the educational foundation that children receive in the first years of school may determine how well they do later in college. We believe it is imperative to teach them during this crucial time while they still have their natural curiosity and innate desire to learn new things. Children will learn reading, writing, numbers, and more.

More than Babysitting

Because many of our preschooler's parents both have to work, our dedicated Christian teachers help provide love, care, and instruction to these precious little ones as if they were their own. The Little Hands Learning Kingdom is far more than a babysitting or play school daycare service. It is an enchanting educational experience.


We offer kindergarten programs each for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds. All students must be fully potty trained and the appropriate age by September 1 to be enrolled. To reinforce the essential lessons of a Christian education, these youngsters will take part in reading Bible stories, singing songs, and playing games. They will also participate in monthly themes in art, music, poetry, and show and tell.
