Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.

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!

Meet the teachers


Janell Trapp

Director and Four Year Old Teacher

I love preschool students, picture books, paint, scissors, glue, and playing Duck, Duck, Goose!

I am happily married and have raised two daughters who are now adults. My youngest daughter attended Harvest Preschool the first year it was 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.


Becky Nelson

Three Year Old Teacher


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.


Harvest Preschool was opened back in 2003 and we have loved being a part of Harvest Community Church and the surrounding neighborhood.  

Hundreds of children and families have been a part of our preschool community and occasionally they come back to visit us.  What a treat!


Our first students are now graduating from college or getting married.  God has been faithful to us through the years, and we look forward to being a part of His continuing story here at Harvest Preschool.
