“Berean Christian Preschool has been nothing short of a God-send for our family.  The staff truly loves each child wholeheartedly. They have played a large role in instilling a love for the Bible and a love for learning in our son. He was a little behind, but the staff has worked with him and continues, to work with him on his level to prepare for grade school.  They have also suggested things outside of school like things that we can do at home to help his progress.  They go the extra mile for their students.  I am truly grateful for every staff member at Berean Christian Preschool.”

“Our daughter has been attending Berean’s preschool program since she was two years old. She is now 5 and will be attending kindergarten this year.

Berean’s preschool program and staff have been nothing short of amazing. They genuinely care for the children in their charge and do a great job learning each child’s individual personality. They have also been invaluable in helping our daughter with specific accommodations.

Our daughter has not yet started kindergarten but she can already read simple sentences and has a healthy desire to worship and learn about God. I highly recommend Berean’s preschool program to anyone who is in search of quality Christian childcare and education.”

Bio: My husband Derrick and I chose Berean Christian Preschool for our daughter Delaney in 2012. We desired for her to be in a safe place where she would be able to receive a God-centered education. Little did we know God had chosen Berean Christian School for me as well. I became a part of the preschool staff in the Spring of  2013.  I have taught  PreK 2, PreK 3 and I am now a part of the Kindergarten/SOAR staff. We have been exponentially blessed by the faithful and loving staff. We thank God for allowing our whole family to be apart of the Berean Christian family.
