We believe that our congregation's life and mission includes assisting parents in the development of their children. Living Savior Preschool offers young children a Christian setting in which to grow, to learn, and to develop spiritually, physically, intellectually, and socially.
We believe that Living Savior Preschool can expand the child's perception of God, of other people, and of the physical world in which God has placed us.
We believe that our school offers preschool children one of the best opportunities for achieving the goals of Christian education outside of the home. It can help them develop healthy personalities, form values, and develop the conscience, feelings and attitudes which form the foundation for a positive self-image and good relationships.
We believe that dedicated and committed Christian teachers can provide young children with numerous opportunities for growth and development.
