Our Goal:

The goal of Pumpkin Patch Preschool is to give children a positive first school experience. We believe children learn best in a loving, caring, accepting atmosphere.

Our Mission:

We provide a Christian setting. We want to share our nondenominational Judeo/Christian faith, beliefs and values. We desire to honor and glorify God in all we do and we dedicate the program to the Lord. We believe children are blessing and a gift from God. We feel that each child is uniquely created. We seek to demonstrate the unconditional love of Christ to each child. We desire to assist each family in their role of nurturing and encouraging their child's development and learning.
