"Your diligence and care for providing an above reproach environment for developing little minds is extraordinary. Jillian and I are completely blessed that our trust to help instruct and care for Gracie has been reaffirmed as our expectations have been consistently exceeded.

Professional Testimonial


"I wanted to let you and the entire staff at Griffin's preschool program know how impressed I have been with the quality of instruction and the caring attitude you all have towards children. It has been exciting for me to watch Griffin grow and prepare himself for kindergarten. With all of the work and effort put in by this amazing staff he will go on to be very successful. I wish all children had the benefit of a quality preschool program with the high standards and expectation that you have here. All of the parents in this community are extremely fortunate to have their children get off to such a great start.

Again, thank you for all that you do for the children at United Methodist Preschool."
