Pequea Preschool first started accepting students in 1996. Since then we have created a fun place for young children to grow. Our trained staff provides young children with hands-on experiences that enhance their spiritual, academic, emotional, physical, and social development. We assist the children in becoming the individuals God has intended them to be. We are God-Honoring, Fun, Educational, and Safe.

Our two-year-old program is designed to help your child grow socially. Sharing, kindness, taking turns, and listening skills are reinforced in class along with rhyming, colors, music, and experimental play. God’s World Bible curriculum is used in this class. In our three-year-old program, we focus on social development like taking turns, sharing, and following directions.They will work on large and fine motor skills, name recognition, shapes, colors, and sorting. Our four-year-olds will be writing their names, numbers, and letters, and will learn opposites, rhyming, patterning, and sounding out letters. They will have lots of dramatic play, cooking, crafts, and reading. ABC Bible Heroes is the curriculum. The Pre-Kindergarten class uses the Essentials Preschool Curriculum, which offers children activity centers, journaling, word wall, science, sequencing, music, and much more.
