Journey Preschool.jpg


Journey Preschool is a ministry of Journey Church and operates as a  private, state licensed facility. The school was founded to offer the community a Christ-centered preschool. 


Journey Preschool emphasizes a traditional Christian approach to education using phonics and basic math skills. All classes use the A Beka curriculum supplemented with additional resources. Classes are kept small enough to allow for individual teacher/student relationship. Our Christian teachers are highly qualified Early Childhood educators.
