"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.

Our overall theme for the 2023-2024 school year is

"God of Wonders!!"

Each month they will learn more about who God is and how we can praise Him!

Our desire is for each child to leave our program knowing that we serve a big GOD who is able to take care of them, who loves us, and is worthy of our praise.
