helping little hearts and minds grow
Our preschool exists to provide a Christ-centered environment that pursues excellence and prepares children for kindergarten and beyond. Our goal is to assist like-minded parents in the nurturing of young lives as we seek to equip students to think and live for Christ. We believe each child is uniquely made by God, and we desire to partner with parents in providing opportunities for children to learn of God’s love for them at young ages. Our entire staff—teachers, administrators, and support staff—love the Lord Jesus Christ and are committed to providing a nurturing and loving environment which helps each child grow spiritually, mentally, socially, emotionally, and physically.
Our goal at Legacy Preschool is to nurture the "whole child" in the areas of physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development. Through Christian principles and teacher-assisted and directed activities, children are encouraged to be independent thinkers and life-long learners. We believe that all children are precious gifts created in the image of God, and that our purpose, through nurturing, hands-on, and play-based learning, is to help each child realize and develop their unique God given gifts.
School is a place where loving relationships matter. Our small class sizes allow us to know each child well. We believe this nurturing and relationship based approach to learning is key to the social, emotional, spiritual, and academic growth that allows our preschoolers to thrive while with us.
All children have an innate desire to seek out new learning experiences and do so through active play and interaction with their peers. Since all children develop at their own rate, it is our responsibility to provide learning opportunities which address the individual physical, spiritual, social, cognitive, and language skills necessary for independence and appropriate development. Through interesting, challenging, and age-appropriate activities, the children at Legacy flourish and grow.

What does tuition cover?
Tuition covers all supplies and includes breakfast, lunch and a snack. If your little one is not potty-trained, you are required to provide diapers and wipes.
Do you have a part-time program?
We do not have a part-time program. However, if a parent wants to keep their little one home throughout the week, they are able to. Our fees do not change based on attendance and there is no required minimum attendance.
Does my child have to be potty-trained?
We do require students to be completely potty trained by the age of three. This means that they are able to communicate if they need to potty and are able to go in and potty independently. If they are turning three before January of that enrollment year, they must also be fully potty trained.
Are uniforms required?
Preschool does not require uniforms but we do have Legacy Cubs t-shirts available through Works of Art, click on the link below to see their selection:
