All Saints Preschool is a ministry of All Saints Presbyterian Church.

All Saints Preschool provides a loving environment for each child to safely explore the wonder of God's World. We use a play-based curriculum that introduces numbers and letters to children in a developmentally appropriate manner. Our top priority is shepherding each child's heart through healthy play and positive social, cognitive, and physical activities.
