“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God”
Luke 2:52

Vaughn Forest Church sponsors the Weekday Preschool as a ministry of the church.
Our purpose is to provide a learning environment that will help preschoolers grow as Jesus grew.

*Please note that all workers that serve in our Weekday Preschool undergo a background check to ensure that your child is safe and cared for.

The Curriculum

Our program incorporates many educational hands-on activities and allows self-discovery through instruction. Your child will participate in a variety of learning centers that include art, books, blocks, puzzles, nature, music, and dramatic play.  Our curriculum is thematically based and provides instruction in phonics and math.

The children attend Chapel each week. The lessons taught during this time are reinforced in the classroom throughout the week. Bible verses are also taught.

Social skills are developed through sharing, taking turns, reasoning, and problem solving.
