Dayspring Preschool & Kindergarten

  • Dayspring Preschool & Kindergarten is a non-profit school located in the Dayspring United Methodist Church since 1981.
  • We have created a caring, nurturing environment where providing the best possible education is just the beginning.
  • We are committed to the total well-being of each and every child and family who pass through our gates.
  • Our mission is to promote a partnership among children, parents and staff.
  • We believe that all children go through predictable stages of growth physically, mentally, and emotionally.
  • We also believe that children grow in various ways and at an individual pace.
  • Our job is to recognize where each child is on this journey and design activities that complement individual growth and development.
  • Our teachers are a talented and experienced group. They have been chosen for their training, experience, character and ability to relate well with young children.
