Welcome to Little Journey Preschool!

Little Journey Preschool is an interdenominational Christian preschool and a ministry of Journey Church. Our staff is dedicated to providing a loving and safe Christian environment for your child to start a life long love of learning.

The three year old curriculum encourages a hands-on approach to learning. The goals for this class are to increase their verbal self-expression and develop the ability to share and negotiate. Developmentally appropriate cognitive skills are woven through the curriculum on a daily basis through both structured (circle time) and unstructured time (learning centers in the classroom). Children should be three by September 1st.

These classes are designed for children 4 and 5 years old who are attending kindergarten the following year. Daily attendance gives the children a gift of TIME– time to expand growing powers, time to test and retest emerging concepts and time to reinforce skills. Our goal is to prepare your child for kindergarten. We communicate with local schools to ensure that your child will meet the demands of the curriculum at the elementary level. This class is designed to give the children a sampling of the many things they will be exposed to when they reach kindergarten.
The skills that your child will need to thrive are woven into your child’s day through hands-on activities in areas of literacy (phonics and whole language techniques are used), math, science and fine and large motor skills. We want your child to have fun and enjoy themselves.
