The First Foundations Preschool Ministry endeavors to teach children from birth through Pre-K about God’s love within a safe, clean, and nurturing environment. It is our goal to provide the best possible care for our preschoolers, allowing parents time to grow closer to God as they worship and study the Bible. This goal is based on 2 Timothy 3:15 – “And that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which is able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
