Preschool Board

The Preschool Board operates and maintains a warm and supportive preschool, seeking to help each child develop to his or her greatest potential, with meaningful experiences for both child and family. The Board cooperates with all church Boards and Committees, but has independent authority to select its own staff, establish its own policy and rules, and maintain its separate financial accounts. It is represented on the Church Council.
