"Let the children come to me, do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God." Mark 10:14


First Place Academy preschool focuses on the development of the "Whole Child". We foster social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual development in the preschool age child, all built on a strong Christian foundation.

Our goal is to equip your child with the necessary skills to readily prepare them for Kindergarten and give them an opportunity to become aware of God so that they can respond to Him in faith and love . Our staff is loving, encouraging, and desires for all students to develop a love for learning as well as finding security in knowing that they are created by a Savior who loves them.
