I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14)

our classes

All of our preschool classrooms are designed for children to use their natural desire to explore the world around them through a play-based approach to learning. This child-initiated, teacher-guided curriculum is implemented through a variety of interest areas such as art, sensory, dramatic play, math, science, and writing. Learning will be paired with Bible stories, Bible verses and prayer, along with visits to the playground/outdoor nature center, large-motor room, and the science room.

  • 3 year olds

    We aim to create curious learners and problem solvers. Children will have ample time to explore and create at learning centers set up throughout the room. Activities change regularly and are designed to help strengthen small and large motor skills, social and emotional skills, independence and self-care, creativity, language development, and number sense. We especially love music, art, storytelling, Jesus time, and dramatic play. Full day classes will have rest time after lunch, followed by additional center time and one-on-one/small group enrichment activities. For half-day students, once you feel your child is ready for full day you may extend their day to a full-day.

  • 4 year olds

    Our 4-year-olds will be provided with activities designed to enhance kindergarten readiness skills. This class will focus on social and emotional skills, friendship building, and extend attention span to create foundational learning and academic skills. Our goal is to ensure your child is socially, emotionally, and academically ready for the next step in learning, wrapped in the love of Jesus. For half-day students, once you feel your child is ready for full day you may extend their day to a full-day

  • 5 year olds

    This class is designed to give children who are 5 (or will be 5 by October 31) an additional year to grow socially, emotionally, and academically before a successful transition to Kindergarten. The school day is organized much like a preschool day with activities that strengthen communication skills, build class community, and encourage play-based learning. We strive to encourage a love for learning and wonder of God’s creation.

  • ages 2-5

    Mixed-age classrooms include a range of ages in the same classroom. The younger children look up to the older ones as role models and the older children look forward to the opportunity to be mentors!

parent testimonials

We absolutely love this program and all the staff! We’ve had nothing but positive experiences with our children.


Mt. Olive Preschool has been an absolute blessing to our family! I had a couple friends recommend this preschool for [my son], so I enrolled him, and the rest is history! I knew it would be great for my kiddos, but what I didn't expect is the influence it would have on me and my husband. To see our children learn and grow in their faith and be so loved and nurtured, was incredible! It went so far beyond my expectations. I cannot thank all the incredible staff members, teachers and assistants enough for all they did to help my kids in their academic and faith journey. Literally, ALL of them are amazing!


We are in our 4th year at Mt. Olive and my kids love it there! The teachers and staff are all such kind, loving and patient people. My son learned a lot there and it really helped prepare him for kindergarten.


My daughter went to preschool here this past year. We were beyond impressed with the program, staff, and the way they support their students. We have recently moved and are so bummed, because the bar has been set extremely high by this preschool and now we’ll have to try and find another one. Our daughter loved her time there and we cannot say enough good things about the school! Keep up the amazing work! Thankful for all you did for us!"
