About Us

Get to know more about what makes us different.

SECOND PRES PRESCHOOL is an outreach of the Family Ministries of Second Presbyterian Church. We have been serving families in our community for over 60 years by providing a faith based early childhood experience. Our staff members are well trained, nurturing educators who love working with young children and helping them reach their fullest potential.
OUR MISSION is to educate the hearts and minds of young children to know and love God and prepare them for the next step in their education and development by providing a loving and supportive environment, age-appropriate educational activities, social and emotional interactions with peers and communicating biblical truths in a meaningful way. We strive to partner with families to achieve a positive early childhood experience for every child.
