About Chapel Hill Preschool

Chapel Hill Preschool helps children experience God’s love by welcoming them into the ministry, accepting them for who they are, and encouraging them to always do their best.

Every child is accepted, encouraged, and instructed, with Jesus as our constant center. The children are told that they are loved — by Jesus and by our staff — and, more importantly, are shown that they are loved by being accepted for who they are, encouraged to always do their best and led to know more about the love of Jesus in weekly instruction.

Chapel Hill Preschool helps parents teach their children about who God is and how He loves us. Students learn about Jesus Christ through our curriculum, in weekly chapel worship, and through songs, music, and prayer.
