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

News from our Preschool

The halls have been filled with sounds of joy and laughter, as students prepare for their Moving Up Ceremony performances and enjoy the beautiful weather! The children have enjoyed participating in our Kinder-Fit Enrichment program. In Chapel, Ms. Karen shared the Bible story of Abraham. We learned that God called Abraham to move to a new land. Students shared the “new land” they would be “moving” to. Some are “moving” to a new school (Kindergarten) while others are “moving” to new classrooms. We all agreed that even when we move to a new place, God is always with us, guiding us and protecting us. Thank you Ms. Karen, for another beautiful Chapel lesson! Enrollment for Summer Camp, Before and After Care and the 2022-2023 school year is still open. I am happy to say that spots are filling up quickly! Please call the Preschool office if you or someone you know is interested in one of our programs. Thank you for spreading the word and for keeping the preschool in your prayers. We would like to wish all of you a very Happy and safe Memorial Day. Thank you to all of those who have served and continue to serve to protect our freedom. We are the land of the free, because of the brave! God bless you and you families, always! Have a blessed week! ~Julia McLaughlin, Director
