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

As we finish another year of learning and growing, we are grateful for the confidence the congregation has in the school, that child-by-child the preschool continues to grow and make a difference in the lives of the families we touch. God continues to bless this mission as the hearts and minds of these little learners are provided with opportunities to know Jesus as an integral part of their daily social and educational growth and development. Our enrollment for 2021-22 is currently at 34 Preschool students and 9 School Age students. Please continue to keep the preschool in your prayers. And keep on spreading the word!   

Have a blessed summer!
