Based in Nature

Nationally Accredited for over 19 years, Peoples Church Preschool embraces a nature-based philosophy and desires to connect children with the natural world whenever possible. This influences our curriculum and daily schedules, including the materials and activities available in both the indoor and Outdoor Classroom. In 2016, Peoples Church Preschool's outdoor classroom space received national recognition as a Certified Nature Explore Classroom.

As an urban Nature Preschool, our program utilizes the 3-acre Valley Court Park adjacent to the preschool and partners with multiple community nature centers.
