"Berean Preschool is a place our family calls home. It provides fun and creative ways for kids to learn in a variety of different areas. The staff/teachers truly love what they do and it is so evident in the way they care for their students. Our kids have grown in multiple areas at Berean Preschool but the most important being their faith in Jesus. They do such an amazing job incorporating this aspect into their daily curriculum. We have really enjoyed our experience here throughout the years!”
-Josh & Kelsey Englund
"Berean preschool has been an undoubtedly amazing school for our family. Not only has our child been blessed by the teachers and curriculum but us as parents as well watching him grow and develop skills, love for others and most importantly, Jesus. The teacher's understanding, care and devotion to developing preschoolers in a way of including Jesus as a focus and center of our hearts is more than we could have hoped for as we raise our children in the world today."
-Shane & Kristine
"We KNOW that God led our family to Berean. Both my boys received the BEST preschool education they could possibly receive, taught by incredibly gifted teachers, but more importantly, they received the spiritual care that is so critical for our little ones. These teachers just don’t teach. They minister the Love of Jesus each and every day to our kids."
