School Notes:

With small classes and a loving, nurturing environment we work to help each child develop to their full potential and get them ready for a lifetime love of learning. Our alumni have gone on to become Doctors, Lawyers, Dentists, PHD's along with other professions. 

Our preschool is secular, welcoming all children ages 3-5 years from the Peoria metro area. The values taught are a great base, and when children love to learn they are on the right path!
