A Christ-centered education is emphasized at the ACS Preschool. We desire to educate our preschool children in an environment where students learn that they have a special place in God’s plan. The children will be taught that God loves and cares for them and His world. In our classroom we will provide many experiences in which children can also express their love for God.

Why ACS Preschool?
“The teacher is always available and genuinely loves and cares for our child!”
"I love that my children are taught to pray and learn to pray for each other. I like that the older students (4th grade buddies) are paired with younger students and are given the opportunity to spend time together throughout the year.”
“I greatly appreciate the philosophy that 3- and 4- year olds learn through play. My daughter loves preschool!”
“The teacher’s passion for Christ is obvious, as well as for Early Childhood Education”
