LEARN ABOUT THE CDC

First Preschool serves to care for your child in a safe, loving, fun and comfortable environment for both you and your child. Every week, your preschooler will learn truth from God’s Word through a Bible story, memory verse, and application activities. Each week’s lesson builds upon a foundational truth. Our purpose is to teach children that God made them, that He loves them, and that Jesus wants to be their friend forever!
