St. John's Preschool

At St. John’s Preschool, our goal is to produce happy and well-adjusted children. Here you will find a nurturing, educational environment for children of ages 2-5 years. We recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles and personalities. Our teachers and staff are committed to working within each child’s comfort zone to ensure optimal social, emotional and educational results. It is the mission of our Christian based preschool to provide a structured, developmentally appropriate values-rich program for preschool aged children. St. John’s Preschool is a state-licensed facility meeting all standards for children’s health, safety and well-being in a Christian setting.



When people do their grief work with this faith-based program, the journey to move forward can be easier. We provide both seminars and 13 weeks’ sessions for those who have experienced the pain of loss. Grief Share, Surviving the Holiday’s and loss of spouse are being provided. We continue to offer support to grieving individuals under the excellent leader Chandra Lucksho who is specialized in pastoral counseling.
