Our Calling is
Educating Your Children

The Summerville Baptist Preschool is a non-profit, Christ-centered ministry. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment each weekday, where children can grow and develop in all areas of their personality—mental, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual. We provide age-appropriate activities, which foster this development and meet the needs of both children and parents.

All employees are active members of a local church and display a Christ-like lifestyle. Our teachers have a genuine love for children and a commitment to teaching. Most are CPR and First Aid certified and all are required to complete fifteen hours of in-service training per year, cleared through SLED & undergo fingerprint checks.

We are proud to say that our school provides two teachers and low child ratios in each class. This allows the teachers the opportunity to tailor to individual needs, offer smaller group activities, and provide a higher quality of care.  

Train up a child in the way he should go,
Even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6
