Partnering with parents, our goal is to teach children the joy of knowing that God made them, He loves them and that we can talk with Him as we go about our days.
Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them!
We prepare our play-based lessons based on topics children enjoy while noticing the seasons, celebrating birthdays and holidays, and reading great picture books. We sing songs and play games during circle time. We also like to go on field trips like the pumpkin patch or the zoo.
In normal school years, we sometimes invite family members to join us for special seasonal celebrations like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Mother’s Day.
A few of the many themes that we enjoy include Community Helpers, Dinosaurs, Outer Space, Fairy Tales, Pets, Insects, and Friendship. We also read and learn from the Bible and this is integrated into every theme we study. We include a Bible lesson every week.
We believe that preschool-age children learn best when we use play as our primary teaching tool.
We know that children learn by doing so plan hands-on activities and movement in every subject we teach.
We promise your child will learn and have fun while getting ready for Kindergarten!

I love preschool students, picture books, paint, scissors, glue, and playing Duck, Duck, Goose!
I am married and have raised two daughters who are now adults. My youngest daughter attended Harvest Preschool in 2003, the year it opened, as a 3-year-old. I have been teaching at Harvest Preschool most years since, starting as an Assistant Teacher and then most recently as Director and Teacher.
It is my joy to watch children learn and understand that Jesus loves them and that they can talk to Him. The chance to be included in a child's spiritual journey will never grow old.

I have worked with children in one capacity or another over the past 25 years. While I've had experience working with kids of many ages and stages my favorite setting continues to be preschool. It is such a privilege to be part of a preschooler's world. there is nothing better than watching a child discover something for the first time: the first spring flowers, a new concept or skill, a new friend. I'm so grateful to the families who entrust their kids to us.
