Early Childhood Education

Early childhood experiences based on Christian faith provide a strong foundation in a child's life.  In First Immanuel's Early Childhood Education Programs, Jesus is a daily presence in our school day. This provides support for growth in a child's emotional, social, intellectual, physical, and spiritual development, and is the basis for strong Christian character.

 

Our Early Childhood Educational offerings include programs for children age 2 through age 5.  The program's classrooms are designed with young children in mind so that each child has a special cubby area, and there are private bathrooms within the classrooms.

Additionally, requests to change your child’s program or course days during the school year need to be made with the admissions office and are based on class availability and lead teacher approval. All programs subject to minimum enrollment requirements.
