Princeton Church Preschool

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me..."

Matthew 19:14

The Princeton Church offers this community a preschool that teaches young children academics and helps develop social skills in a Christian environment.  We are a non-profit organization sponsored by the Princeton Church and are open to children from families of all faiths. No doctrinal teachings are implemented. Christian prayers, songs and Bible stories are a part of the Preschool curriculum which is designed to provide a scriptural foundation for academic excellence and good character training.  Daily schedules include morning assembly, educational centers, outside play, and snack time in addition to class time.  Seasonal activities include a Thanksgiving or Christmas program, field trips, a graduation ceremony, and seasonal/monthly birthday parties.
