Abiding Presence Preschool provides a safe and educationally stimulating environment for children ages two to five to grow, to learn, and to develop physically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and spiritually by:

     • encouraging the child to feel secure in the love of God

     • encouraging the child in self-confidence, self-esteem, and concern

for others by encouraging cooperation in work and play, fostering a spirit of sharing

     • encouraging the development of skills through the use of  developmentally appropriate activities that respect the individual characteristics, learning styles, and interests of the child

     • encouraging the child’s innate sense of curiosity; developing his/her intellect through natural interaction with real things in the child’s environment

“The biggest blessing to our family this school year was enrolling my 4-year old daughter in Abiding Presence Preschool. Our daughter loves her school, her teachers and her friends. The teachers are excellent! They encourage independence and have helped my daughter be more than ready for kindergarten. The director, is an incredible leader and runs a wonderful program. The entire team work with the kids with so much patience and love! I am deeply grateful for the trust they continuously inspire in me as I leave the most precious piece of me in their care. My only regret is not finding APLC Preschool sooner!” ~Diosalma

Preschool News

We continue to learn about winter, hibernation and water. In Chapel, we learned that Mary and Joseph couldn’t find Jesus. They thought he was lost! When Jesus was found in the temple, he told his parents that he was not lost, he was studying the word of God. We learned that whenever we are lost, we can always count on God to help us find our way.

We are offering early registration for the 2021-2022 school year to our APLC Preschool and Church families from January 25th through February 5th. To show our appreciation to our preschool and church community, we are offering a discounted application fee to all families who register during this promotion. We will open registration to the public on Saturday, February 6th, where we will kick off the registration season with an Open House (by appointment only). To schedule an appointment, please call the Preschool Director, Julia McLaughlin at 631-269-4898.Please spread the word about our exciting upcoming events and stay tuned for more news from the preschool!

Have a blessed Week!
