Children must be in the process of being potty trained in order to be enrolled. Our Preschool program offers full day, half day, full week and 2, 3 or 4 day programs to fit most parents schedules. Children learn basic school readiness skills such as numbers, letters and shapes, but emphasis is put on preparing them to succeed in school through positive peer interactions and participating in a group setting.  Tours given daily. School-Age ProgramFruitland After School Program accepts children in Kindergarten thru 5th grade. We provide transportation to and from most Atwater schools. We provide homework help and interest areas as well as weekly specialized clubs such as Art and cooking .

We are open during all school breaks with the exception of major holidays as outlined in our parent handbook.Summer Camp ProgramFruitland Summer Camp Program is offered to students entering kindergarten through 5th grade. Our Jr. Camp program for our incoming Kindergarten and 1st graders will stay on site for most of the week, while our Senior Campers (those entering 2nd-5th grade) will go on field trips two to three times per week. Each week will focus around a different weekly theme with corresponding activities and adventures for your child to participate in.

I attended this school and it taught me how to share and be less selfless. Now, at 14 years old, I can confidently say that this preschool has helped me to become a more faithful Christian and a selfless person. Forever in our hearts this school will remain. I remember miss Susan, ms carry and ms Wilson. I was included in the teddy bear class and the sunshine class for my two years at this school. I loved snack time and play time. Unfortunately, I didn`t realize how detrimental nap time was during that period of my life . Thanks Fruitland Christian -London Hultgren

This school has been in our lives for nearly 20 years! I used to attend and now all of my boys go here! I love the teachers, their personalities, and their will to give and teach every child all day everyday! Keep up the hard work ladies! You mean a lot to myself and my family!

My children use to go to Buhach Preschool in Atwater and I must say that the best decision I ever made was to pull them from that horrid place. Ms. Andi the director at Fruitland Christian, welcomed me and my children with open arms. She made us feel welcomed, loved and reassured us that my children were going to be in warm, capable hands. I love that all the teachers are in school and have there A.A.'s. All the teachers know exactly where a child should be at cognitively and are always willing to go the extra mile for the children. My children love going there and it feels like a family there. I am so glad that I enrolled my children in Fruitland Christian. It was the best decision I ever made.
